Niels Bohr and Albert Einsten were taking a walk in the woods, vigorously debating the philosophical underpinnings of quantum theory, when a gigantic bear suddenly burst out of the underbrush and raced toward them. Niels immediately whipped out his fine running shoes and began lacing them up.
Einstein, furrowing his brow at Bohr, said: "Niels, there's no way you can outrun that bear."
"That's true," Bohr calmly replied, "but I don't need to outrun the bear. I only need to outrun you."
That's a new one for me and a dang gudin. Thanks!
