PART X - PLANNING PROSE & HUMOR












"A well-known scientist once gave a lecture on astronomy. He described how the earth orbits around the sun and how the sun, in turn, orbits around the center of a vast collections of stars called our galaxy. At the end of lecture, a little old lady at the back of the room got up and said, 'What you told us is rubbish. The world is really a flat plate supported on the back of a giant tortoise.'

The scientist gave a superior smile before replying, 'What is the tortoise standing on?'

'You're very clever, young man, very clever,' said the old lady.
"But it's turtles all the way down.'"
