Quote for the day: how can you tell an honest person?

"If you ask [a person] intelligent questions--that is, penetrating, interested, honest, frank, direct questions on the subject, and no trick questions--then he quickly gets stuck. It is like a child asking naive questions. If you ask naive but relevant questions, then almost immediately the person doesn't know the answer, if it he is an honest man. It is important to appreciate that."  ~~ Richard Feynman, The Meaning of It All
