This is a question Stories of unsurpassed brilliance

This "Week" The suggestion comes from Kroney who muses

"Whilst I was passing through Miami airport at the tender age of 21, I fancied a beer. "ID" said the charming Southerner behind the desk, so I got out my passport and showed it to her.

"You have to be 21," she said. Now this confused me slightly as I had been 21 for several months by this point and my date of birth was staring her in my face.

"I am 21," I replied helpfully "it says so there, look"

"You have to be 21", she said getting angry.

Cut a long story short, I argued, the manager came out, I argued with him before I finally realised that they weren't looking at the date of birth at all. They were looking at the date of *issue*

That would have made me an annoyingly precocious four year old. What examples of unsurpassed mental genius have you experienced?"""""""

I live in a small-ish village on the outskirts of Edinburgh
Our High Street contains the usual types of businesses - a paper shop, a Scotmid (Co-Op to you southern lot), a bakery, couple of pubs, etc.

A vacant unit was taken over by a bookies. This was back before online betting really took off, so it seemed like the owners had cleverly identified a niche in the local market.

On it's opening weekend, Hearts were playing Hibs in a hotly-anticipated local football derby. However, all partisan feelings were put aside as supporters of both teams gladly placed bets on BOTH teams to take advantage of the bookies somewhat generous odds. Yes, that's right, you could put money on ALL outcomes and still come out ahead.

The bookies closed down the following week.
