Why Not? — Don’t Complicate Simple Things!

Posted on: December 17, 2010

Got this story from an in-flight magazine. Looks like a forwarded mail joke, But unlike other forwarded stuff, this one makes sense, and has a valid lesson for everyone.

Once upon a time, there was a philosophy teacher. He conducted a test to all his students, and it had only one question “Prove that the chair in front of you is invisible!”

(Image Courtesy:

His students were super-intelligent. They used all the theory they learnt throughout the year and wrote fantastic answers to prove that the chair is indeed invisible. But the top marks went to a student who wrote just two words as his answer: “What Chair?”

Lesson? Don’t Complicate Simple Things!
