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?"""""""

Many years ago I used to get a lift to work from a young female travel agent.
When crossing the Runcorn/Widnes bridge on a particularly breezed Monday morning she pointed to the wind socks and asked me what they were for..."they are a method of being able to tell the time but it's all very technical".

Nothing much more was said about them.

Until on the way home she was telling me she had told all her work colleagues about the "time socks" (this is the name I came up for them) and that all of her work colleagues are going to be looking out for them now.

She stopped giving me a lift shortly after this time.

Was it because she found out that you are a convicted paedophile?

I am not too sure...Come to think about it it was a bit out of the blue.
Perhaps she paid more attention to the local press hey.

Ah well you can't choose a lifestyle like mine and not expect some resistance at times.
