There is a rope ladder hanging over the side of a ship. Each of the rungs of the ladder are a metre apart. The tide rises at the rate of 80 centimetres an hour. How many rungs are covered after four hours?
We don’t like it when children criticise us.
They are not permitted to notice out mistakes or absurdities.
We appear before them in the garb of perfection
We play with children using marked cards
We win against the low cards of childhood with the aces of adulthood.
Cheaters that we are, we shuffle the cards in such a way that we deal ourselves everything.
