: Hi folks! I got into a discussion with a colleague of mine on whether the Great Wall of China was visible from the moon or not.
: can someone please confirm if I am right or not
: Ans while we are at it Shakespear said "To be or not to be"
: "be" what???? and is this phrase from "As you like it"?
a) It's *not* visible to the naked eye from the surface of the moon - not by a long chalk.
b) "To be" in this case means "to exist". That is, whether to live or not.
c) It's from Hamlet, not As You Like It.
