I noticed today that you can't really argue with a three-year-old. Three-year-olds lack the experience and the facts. On the other hand, when someone tries to argue with someone in a position of authority; someone who clearly has lots of experience and intelligence, simply due to the fact that they have been elected to such a high position; sometimes it feels about the same as arguing with the three-year-old.
Also, I remember working as a camp counselor many years ago, and one of the things we used to do as counselors was, if a kid asked when free time was, we would answer their question with a question; for instance:
Kid: "When is free time?"
Counselor: "I don't know; when is free time?"
So this makes me wonder; is there a word for a person who fools someone into thinking that they are crazy, for purposes of saving the time of getting into an argument?
