if I ate a chicken and you ate nothing|
that would equal a ½ chicken per each of us, on average now.
That's according to statisticians averaging.
You ate nothing,
but A Satistician says you ate a ½ chicken.

When you talk you don't learn.
When you talk you open your mind to
others but you aren't learning.
Hopefully, your teaching!
When you ask good questions,
you learn when you listen to
good and bad answers.
When others talk,
you learn their minds.
Asking Good questions is
thinking and learning.
Learning is seeking answers
to good questions.
Comprehension of what you
learn is the result of
acquiring the vocabulary of the language.
Enlarging your native vocabulary
comes from reading beyond comprehension.
And so, I ask you, what is 'snicket'?

“I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.”
