Mark had been considering a good number of things for a good number of minutes. It is said that if one considers something for even a limited number of minutes one can come away from that something having considered nearly all there is to consider about it. If that is true then it would seem that Mark had considered nearly all one could consider about a good number of things. This was not, however, the case. Mark knew next to nothing about anything, and though he considered a good number of things for a good number of minutes, he never came close to considering much about any of those things. And that, I suppose, is simply the way some people are: always considering something, but never really considering much about it.
