"If a dozen men, working eight hours a day, had to dig a hole ten-and-a-half miles deep—how long would it be, including Sundays, before they put down their spades?"

The King's eyes shone with a cunning sparkle. He gazed at the Cat with a look of triumph. But the Cat had its answer ready.

"Two seconds," it said quickly, with a little flick of its tail.

"Two seconds! Are you mad? The answer's in years!" The King rubbed his hands together with glee at the thought of the Cat's mistake.

"I repeat," said the Cat. "It would take them two seconds. To dig such a hole would be utterly foolish. 'Ten miles deep?' they would say. 'Why, what on earth for?'"

comment Why do trucks pass each other on the highway?
@andra There are way too many reasons why truckers can do this, Highway Hypnosis would be the simplest one I can come up with. Also there is no such thing as a dangerous speed there is usually minimum speed but slowing down by 10-15km/h doesn't put anyone in danger unless you do it abruptly.
