One day, Einstein has to speak at an important science conference.
On the way there, he tells his driver that looks a bit like him:
"I'm sick of all these conferences. I always say the same things over and over!"
"You're right. As your driver, I attended all of them, and even though I don't know anything about science, I could give the conference in your place."
The driver nods his head in agreement.
"That's a great idea!"
"Let's switch places then!"
So they switch clothes and as soon as they arrive, the driver dressed as Einstein goes on stage and starts giving the usual speech, while the real Einstein, dressed as the car driver, attends it.
But in the crowd, there is one scientist who wants to impress everyone and thinks of a very difficult question to ask Einstein, hoping he won't be able to respond. So this guy stands up and interrupts the conference by posing his very difficult question. The whole room goes silent, holding their breath, waiting for the response.
The driver looks at him, dead in the eye, and says
Dead on, or dead straight. It means perfectly aligned, or “as the crow flies". As opposed to a curve, or gradient. So basically, it's intentional and purposeful; designed to yield maximum impact.

"Sir, your question is so easy to answer that I'm going to let my driver reply to it for me."
Use this extension to display something totally unrelated to stories.
I worked with this extension for quite a while now and never had any problem. Installation was easy and working with the extension is even easier.
Nothing but love for this extension. My visitors are entertained by the way the stories are represented and I can focus on creating more stories.
