(I am pushing my two-year-old daughter around the stalls at our annual agricultural show. One of the stalls is selling encyclopedia sets. As I am passing, a salesman gets in front of me.)

Salesman: “Excuse me. Would you be interested in our encyclopedias?”

Me: “No, thank you.”

Salesman: “I see you have a child. It would be an asset to their education.”

Me: “Yes, I agree, but I’ll wait until she’s actually old enough to need a set.”

Salesman: “Don’t worry about that. Everything she will ever need is in this set. You might as well get it now for her because it will still be up to date when she’s older. There won’t be any changes in it.”

Me: “So you are telling me that everything has been discovered? That there will be no new discoveries over the next 10 years or ever?”

Salesman: “Yes, that is right.There’s nothing left to be discovered.”

Me: “Nothing will ever change?”

Salesman: “That’s right. If you just come over here I’ll sign you up and take your details for payment.”

Me: “I don’t think so. Goodbye.”
