You are walking along holding an umbrella with your wife.
You approach a gate with an
obstruction above it made of steel.
a. You should lower the umbrella, close the
umbrella, pass the umbrella through the gate and
open it on the other side.
b. You should leave the umbrella open and
pass it over the top of the obstruction and
continue on the other side.
c. You should continue to hold the umbrella in
the same position because a metal solid will pass
through another metal solid unobstructed. Its a
law of physics.
d. You should resign because you are too dumb
to hold a public office.
