The Master one exposed his disciples by means of the following lesson:

He gave each of them a sheet of paper and asked them to write down the length of the hall they were in.

Almost everyone gave flat figures like fifty feet.  Two or three added the word approximately.

Said the Master, "No one gave the right answer."

"What is the right answer?" they asked.

"The right answer is 'I do not know."

There just may be a management off-site in my future that could include this little exercise in grandiosity / humility.
