There was once a famous Chinese foal who went around asking how deep the stream was but couldn’t get a definitive answer. Aunt Squirrel claimed it was deep enough to drown some of her family members, while Uncle Bull insisted it was shallow enough to barely cover his legs when he crossed it. The foal, needing an approximation, found a stick and measured himself against it. Then he used the same stick to compare himself with his interlocutors.
