A famous author learned a lesson for his misjudgement. One day, he was waiting for the morning paper, which did not come until noon. There might be three possibilities: 1) the paper was not delivered by mistake, 2) subscription term is ended, and 3) the paper was not issued. He checked the previous day was a holiday, so he was sure of 3). But later that afternoon, the paper was brought in, and he was told the paper was hidden in the bushes near a tree. Sometimes, a "rational" judgement may prove wrong. Your opinion?

What you said was There MIGHT be three possibilities. Might is the key word. Lack of knowledge or facts always invites wrong judgements. That is why everything must be questioned.

Yes!Realities are stranger than fictions.We can't reason out all the things happening around us.Sometimes logical thinking will fail too and it is because we don't concern all the possibilities that can happen.If that author went for a free walking instead of thinking in a place,he could have found it earlier.Cheers!
