Occam's razor

Ridley's Believe it or Not

Ancient philosopher Occam's razor was so tiny that it took him hours to shave his face. It was said that by the time he'd finished shaving one side, the stubble had regrown on the other. When friends urged him to use a bigger razor, Occam insisted that it was best to use the minimum size of razor with which it was possible to shave. As a result Occam spent the best part of his waking hours shaving.
