Two Childhood Mysteries.

I don’t remember anybody explaining to me what a mirror was the first time I looked into one. Neither do I remember having any doubt that what I was seeing was me. I wonder how I knew.

What I do remember wondering as a child was why the lions being brought to Noah’s Ark didn’t simply eat Noah and take over the operation. If they had, the world might now be ruled by lions instead of a bunch of ape descendants who ought to understand the purpose of evolution but apparently haven’t got the hang of it yet.
