I like surprises

Note:  The following video is posted in the spirit of what Aristotle called the ability “to entertain a thought without accepting it.”  Kudos to Richard Hanna for the quotation from an old Greek guy who was even more opinionated than Christopher Hitchens. (A warning: some of Hitchens’ language is impolitely blunt.)
