    If a tree smells in the forest, does anyone hear it?

    Well, do they?

    I am the local expert on trees so I will attempt to answer the question. Yes, you can hear a tree smelling - usually someone is alergic and starts to sneeze, and that you can hear.

    Because the sound travels faster than the smell.

    Remmber the speed of sound is about 3 times faster than the speed of smell.

    At standard conditions, yes. But what about at the bottom of the ocean?

    There is no smell, because the bottom of the ocean is full of water.

    Then the smell is the winner, because you can't have sound and smell coming from the same place.

    If my wife says something to me and I do not hear her because I am not in the same room with her, did she say anything?

    I contend she did not.

    If you say something and your wife does not hear it, are you still wrong?

    But what if they're comming from separate, but identical sources at the bottom of the ocean where there isn't any water? What then, Professor Fancypants?

    Yes they do, always.

    The real question is, if a man says something in the woods, and no woman is around to hear him, is he still wrong?

    You obviously date a higher class of women than I do. And by date, I mean pay. And by women, I mean hooker.

    Hooker? No...

    "Escort" is more like it.
