What's the most stupid conversation you've ever had?
Last night, as part of the New Year celebrations, a TV presenter commented that 2007 will be wonderful because 7 is a lucky number.
Someone asked me why 7 was considered a lucky number. I replied that the week was divided into 7 days, and consequently we feel there is something special about this particular number.
I won't go into the stupidity of superstition at this moment. I felt confident that my response was coherent if not necessarily correct. Morons, however, always manage to catch intelligent people by surprise. Someone jeered at me, "The week doesn't have seven days; it has 8."
"Sunday to Sunday. Eight days."
Could you have managed a reply to such an insane idea? No, neither could I. And this was no joke, the person was serious.
Be careful in 2007, my friends. Be very careful...
