Subject: RE: BS: Stupid riddle but can you explain it?
As Grishka indicates, it's always critically important to define your terms. Suppose, for example, that a friend makes an observation pertaining to automobiles on the highway. But, he uses the word "cars" instead of "automobiles". His statement is utterly meangingless; there is no way to know with certainty that he is not referring to "handcars", designed for travel on railways by pumping manually on levers.
