The oracle

One fine morning, a young boy and his dad went out fishing.

After a few quiet hours out in the boat, the boy was bored. So he decided to ask his father some questions that he'd long been curious about.

"Dad, how do fish breathe under water?"

His father thought about it for a moment.

"I really don’t know, son."

The boy sat quietly for a bit, then turned to his dad again.

"How does our boat float on the water?"

His dad pondered. "Yeah... Hm!... I honestly don’t know, son."

The boy mused some more. Shortly he asked, "Why is the sky blue?"

"Hmm... That's a good one... Can't say, son. I just don't know."

The inquisitive youngster grew worried that he might be annoying his father.

"Dad, do you mind me asking you all these questions?"

"Of course not, son!" replied his dad. "How else are you ever going to learn anything?"
