VMs: Children's stuff

Just thought you would like this:

  This saturday, a student of mine came into my office as I was poring
  over the nymphs from a Zodiac page, highly magnified. He looks at my
  screen attentively, then asks

 `What is *that*?'.

 `An old manuscript I have been studying...,' I try to explain.

  He looks at it some more, then

 `Hm... looks like it was drawn by a kid...'

 `You think so? Actually, others have said that too; but it 
  almost 250 pages long...'

 `Well,' he says, `it must have been a kid 
  with *very long* school vacations.'
All the best,
