Attempts to resolve the Quandary:



Meeting a straw-sucking, rosy-cheeked granger driving his juggernaut of a combine harvester down the lane I effected a nifty volte-face in my petite deux chevaux, not least because he was already imparting by means of practised oath and seasoned gesture that it was an apodicticity that I would be mashed roadkill if I were to tarry.

"I wish I were a juggernaut, so I could explore outer space," said my friend Granger (who, as a simple village granger, may not have been the brightest star in the firmament, but holy Christ, did he raise delicious persimmons); anyway, when I pointed out to him one day that a real juggernaut was rolling inexorably towards him, he refused to do a volte-face, insisting that whatever that thing was, it could never reach outer space--a point whose apodicticity could not be denied.
