  •  The poet Robert Graves wrote (0+ / 0-)

    of a childhood visit with some German relatives who were minor nobility.  One of his cousins took him on a tour of their old castle.  When they came upon an isolated corner, there was a hole.  The cousin told him a story of an old lord of the manor who feared his enemies so he had an escape tunnel dug that went all the way down to the river nearly a mile away.  Go on, he said.  Why don't you try it?  Graves thought it looked like an old loo, so he declined.
