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?"""""""

me, unfortunately
Spent an evening drinking caipirinhas in a bar and eventually got to wondering why, as our bit of the bar was so busy, we didn't go into the room next door that I could see through a porthole cunningly positioned in the wall.

When I suggested it, it was pointed out that this porthole was in fact a mirror.

Wouldn't the mirror bar have looked
exactly as busy as the one you were in though?

Was it a vampire bar?

It happens to the sober too -
A friend's mum bought a flat thinking that it was twice the size it was because the previous owners had a very large mirror. Cunning swines!
