Can't color inside the lines 'cause
I'm perfectly incomplete
I'm still working on my masterpiece and I
I wanna hang with the greatest gotta
Way to go, but it's worth the wait"

    Gabe: Hmm, interesting question... but what if hypothetical didn't mean hypothetical at all and it actually meant something else? So therefore, their list would actually be quite accurate.

    What of someone were to write a list of hypothetical questions, where the vast majority of questions weren't hypothetical at all?
