Banta and and son went fishing one day. Sitting in the boat for a couple of hours gave them not much to do, so the son started thinking about the world around him. He began to get curious so he asked his father some questions.

    Banta immediately assured him, "Of course not, son. If you don`t ask questions, you`ll never learn anything!"
