You Never Know

I intend for the following clips to be demonstrations that assuming someone is behaving like a rational actor often amounts to the same as making no assumption at all.

The first video is from the New York Times and concerns the Umbrella Man, a man seen holding an umbrella -on what was a clear, sunny day - beside JFK's car as the shots were fired. Surely there could only be a sinister explanation?

The second video is from the American version of Family Fortunes. The topic is "Words or Phrases Beginning with 'pot;".
