Michael et al:

That is the heart of Russel's Paradox. For those that may not know:

Imagine creating a grocery list. Could that list itself also be a list of lists of grocery items? Doesn't that mean an empty list could consist of an infinity of empty lists? Sounds like bunk to me, which is why we can thank Whitehead and Russel for solving this problem with a `stopgap' that seems to work fine AFIK.

You should know I also smoke rocks,
