the more you see, the less you see.

The sun? The longer you look at the sun, the worse your eyesight becomes, overexposure can even cause partial blindness.

Four men were in a boat on the lake. The boat turns over, and all four men sink to the bottom of the lake, yet a single man didn't get wet! Why?

I spent about an hour thinking that one up. The moon? ...no, that doesn't seem right. Give me some more time, I'll think about it.

Over thinking is a wonderful way of describing it.

Do you have any guesses for the one I proposed:

Four men were in a boat on the lake. The boat turns over, and all four men sink to the bottom of the lake, yet a single man didn't get wet! Why?

Um, they're all in diving gear?

They have bubbles about them?

They are not human men, but some time of waterproof mutant?

Anyone got any more straws for me to grasp? :scratch:
