Remember  Socrates, who knew that he knew nothing.

It was probably the only honest thing the old chicken-hawk ever said.   
Still, his friends gave us one of the greatest practical jokes in history.   They 
had him persuaded that the hemlock was really going to be blowfish toxin  and 
that he would seem to miraculously rise from the dead in twelve hours and be  
proclaimed a god.  Of course he got the real stuff and the reason that the  
19th century painting shows the person giving him the cup hiding his face is  
that that person was trying not to laugh!  The look on Socrates face when  he 
realized the truth was priceless.
Seriously.  It's all in the Akashic DVD--Famous Funny Incidents in  Greece 
Vol 2.
