    Let me share a thought of mine, which sounds like pun and aphorism at the same time:
    “Real people are like real numbers. They are mostly irrational, which makes them feel normal.”

    If someone does not find it funny, they can reacquaint themselves with the definitions (of real, irrational and normal numbers). Building a Venn diagram is not necessary 🙂
