95. I'm sure you do. I predict that one day you will die from a lack of proof.

I can see the medics now around your death-bed. Yes... a sad case... He was trained as a physician, you know... But his thirst for proof about everything eventually took him over completely and he died raving about this lack of proof about everything he felt so keenly.

And the coroner will remark that the condition had hitherto been unknown to medical science, and that, in the circumstances, all he felt competent to enter for the record was: "Attorney manque".

Only an hour? To decide on the merits of a putative case, in which the plaintiff had signed away his rights in the matter....? If they had all suffered from a fairly advanced form of dementia, I dare say, it might have been possible.
