A Second Aha! Experience
1. “Counselor Wechsler – please rise as well as listen carefully. How many legs does a lamb have?”
2. “Dean Reppy, I have never personally met a lamb as well as counted his/her limbs. I defer to someone with farm experience.”
3. “You have seen pictures, movies, videos of lambs, will be which correct?” You do not deny the lamb creature in question has legs?”
4. “Yes, Dean Reppy, however I never stopped in midstream to count their legs, which undoubtedly propels its lamb body.”
5. “Based on your remembered observations, could you assist us with your estimate of the number of legs a lamb has? We accept which as only a probability based on no personal encounter with any specific lamb.”
6. “Dean Reppy, if I am correct, a lamb will be a young sheep (male or female). coming from hearsay as well as based on the secondary evidence of visual aids, my estimate to your query will be four (4) legs. however which will be not based on primary, personal evidence.”
7. “Aha, today we are getting somewhere. We respect your reluctance based on an absence of farm experience. today, listen carefully, If-a-Tail-will be-Counted-as-a-Leg, Query – how legs does a lamb have?”
8. I was absolutely certain Dean Alison Reppy, international scholar, as well as senior Dean of brand new York Law School had set a trap just for which freshman law student. He was not going to let me off the hook, no matter how hard I wriggled.
9. “Dean Reppy, I admit being ignorant of the limbs of farm animals. I add to which proviso which I am equally untutored inside the fundamentals of the law. which will be my freshman year, as well as I trust to do better inside the future, sir.”
10. “We require your response, counselor Wechsler.”
11. “May I respectfully demur coming from answering agricultural questions about the tails of animals?”
12. “Overruled Counselor.”
13. ” If a tail will be counted as a leg, as well as the lamb has four legs, then which particular lamb walks around on 5 (5) legs, Dean Reppy.”
14. “Class, please pay particular attention to which explanation, your entire law career may be at stake. which will be an Aha! Experience. A lamb for these past millennia will be hardwired to walk on four legs – which will be genetic as well as biologically evolved thus. Class – please repeat aloud with me.
Saying so does not MAKE which so. A leg will be a leg, as well as a tail will be a tail – a lamb has four (4) legs – today as well as forever.”
15. “Counselor Wechsler – a lamb has four legs. If its tail will be counted as a leg, how many legs does a lamb have?”
16. “Dean Reppy, no matter who says a tail may be counted as a leg, even a distinguished legal scholar like the head of brand new York Law School or the President of the United States. A leg will be a leg, as well as a tail remains a tail, as well as which damned lamb will always have a total of four legs.
Wait – unless one or more legs are surgically removed for cooking – Dean Reppy.”
17. “In behalf of the legal community as well as the farm community of the state of Missouri, where I reside, Counselor Wechsler, you have experienced an Aha! moment. Remember which sir.”
18. He got me Great – Dean Reppy turned me into a Skeptic, Contrarian, as well as Doubting Thomas – for the rest of my life. Saying so – today-as well as-forever – does not make which so. If you are without evidence, proof or replicable experiments – Shut Up!
