There is a metal door at home that everyone had decided it is impossible to bolt, because the welder got the configurations wrong.

One night a visiting family member was the last to go to bed, and he was casually asked to check all doors are locked and all lights are off before he retires.

Later that night, when I did my usual casual stroll around the house, I noticed the metal door was locked. I was shocked.

The next morning, I asked him how he did it, and he thought it was a trick question. “I just shut it and bolted it.” I called other members of the house and they were just as amazed.

I unbolted it with ease and bolted it back again.

The change in weather had caused the right expansion to make the metal door workable, but everyone that knew of the welder’s mistake never even bothered to try bolting the door again. The one who knew nothing just bolted it.

The less you know, the more likely you are to do the “impossible.”
