It’s easy, once you know how…
“Anyone could have done it”, critics argued upon the return of the explorer Christopher Columbus (1451-1506) from having discovered ‘The New World’. In response, Columbus challenged them to stand an egg upright on the small end, and when they failed he carefully cracked the shell and stood the egg up. “But that’s easy!” they exclaimed. “Yes”, replied Columbus, “once you know how.”
