    A well-known scientist (some say it was Bertrand Russell) once gave a
    public lecture on astronomy. He described how the earth orbits around
    the sun and how the sun, in turn, orbits around the center of a vast
    collection of stars called our galaxy. At the end of the lecture, a
    little old lady at the back of the room got up and said: "What you have
    told us is rubbish. The world is really a flat plate supported on the
    back of a giant tortoise."
    The scientist gave a superior smile before replying, "What is the
    tortoise standing on?"
    "You're very clever, young man, very clever," said the old lady.
    "But it's turtles all the way down!"
