Yahoo Finance: A 12-year-old girl once stumped Warren Buffett with a rough question about Berkshire

She stood up and she said, ‘My dad told me that when he bought the Berkshire stock, it was going to go to my college education, and now it looks like I’m going to have to go to correspondence school,” said Buffett.

The trick to stumping Warren Buffett with a rough question is to not provide a question mark. Make it more of a statement. Works every time!

From the comments:

Good thing the title of this article is entirely screwed up. "A 12-year-old girl once stumped Warren Buffett with a rough question..." Where is the question? All we have is a statement about the performance of Berkshire stock. There is nothing challenging in the statement, and how is Buffet stumped by the comment? Seriously, who writes these articles? - Sugar

Apparently, this story stumped the writer. What kind of 'writer' has trouble distinguishing between a statement and a question? - Ben

Have you ever seen such solidarity in an election year? How can so many Americans all agree on the same thing simultaneously? It brings tears to my eyes.

You won't see me mentioning Ammon Bundy, domestic terrorism, Donald Trump, racism, Hillary Clinton, or Goldman Sachs to spoil the mood. No, sir. Not going there.

Oops. ;)
