    Thich Nhat Han once said that their is always a cloud in a piece of paper, can you explain how?

    And a harder one, Charles Darwin said that Cat-Loving Spinsters make London one of the most pleasant places in the world to live. Hint: The answer has to do with flowers (forget allergies). Why are Cat-Loving Spinsters so integral to the beauty of London?

    OK...

    Spinsters love cats, so less mice, so more bees, so more clover, so more beef, so more sailors, so greater Naval prowess, so more trade, so more wealth?

    That could work, but Darwin had a different solution. You had everything right until clover, there you went wrong. Bees and this beautiful plant have a symbiotic relationship (probably gave it away). And if you get the last answer, that is all you need.

    How does "less mice" lead to "more bees"? Mice don't eat bees...do they?

    You really don't know what a cloud is? Really? Really? Those things that float across the sky and occasionally percipitate, obscure the sun, etc. It think it is that mice sometimes disturb underground nests that bees have. It is something like that.
