In the Three Kingdoms period, there was a wonderful question and answer, which included the political positions of both sides in the question and answer. The questions were skillful and the answers were more political. These two people are the envoy of Dongwu Zhang Wen and the Han Dynasty. Qin Mi [mì].
In 223, after Liu Bei suffered a big defeat in the "Battle of Yiling", he retired to Baidi City and fell ill. Before he died, he was left alone with Zhuge Liang, and Zhuge Liang assisted his master Liu Chan.
After Zhuge Liang took over the power of the Shu Han Dynasty, in October of that year, he sent the envoy Deng Zhi to Soochow. The two sides repaired it and continued to join forces against the Northern Cao Wei regime.
The next year, as a return visit , Sun Quan also sent envoy Zhang Wen to Shu to keep the Dongwu and Shuhan to continue friendship.

When Zhang Wen was leaving, Zhuge Liang led the Shu Han civil and military officials to walk for him. Everyone arrived, except Qin Mi, the Changshui captain promoted by Zhuge Liang, has not arrived. Zhuge Liang also sent people to urge him several times..
Zhang Wen felt very strange and asked Zhuge Liang: "Who is he?"
Zhuge Liang replied: "Bachelor of Yizhou."
As a gifted scholar from Soochow, Zhang Wen wanted to find an opportunity to show his talents. He felt that so many people were waiting for him. People, it's better to wait for this person to come, test him yourself, and make this "Yizhou bachelor" make a fool of yourself.
Qin Mi (?-226 years), with the word Zi Chi. Born in Mianzhu, Guanghan County (now Deyang North, Sichuan). Qin Mi can speak eloquently. In his early years, he served under Liu Zhang, former Yizhou Mu, and later surrendered to Liu Bei. When Liu Bei defeated Wu, Qin Mi tried his best to dissuade him. Liu Bei was angry and wanted to kill Qin Mi. Thanks to Zhuge Liang's timely plea, he saved his life.
After Qin Mi arrived, Zhang Wen, in front of Zhuge Liang, began to talk to Qin MiQuestion: "Have you ever read a book?"
Qin Mi said: "Five-foot-tall children all read, why should you look down upon others!"
Zhang Wen asked again: "Does the sky have a head?"
Qin Mi replied: "There is a head."
Zhang Wen asked: "Where is the head?"
Qin Mi answered : "In the West, the "Book of Songs" says,'I care about the West.' This pushes it, and the head is in the West."
Zhang Wen asked again: "Does the sky have ears?"
Qin Mi replied: "The place of the sky is high, but the underground voice can also be heard. The "Book of Songs" says,'Heming is in Jiugao, and the sound is heard in the sky.' If the sky has no ears, what is the use of listening? "
Zhang Wen asked again: "Does the sky have feet?"
Qin Mi replied: "Yes, "The Book of Songs" says that the steps of the sky are difficult, and the sons are not jealous. If the sky is Why can you walk without feet?"
Zhang WenAsked again: "Does Tian have a surname?"
Qin Mi replied: "There is a surname."
Zhang Wen asked: "What is the surname?"
Mi replied: "The surname is Liu."
Zhang Wen asked: "How do you know the surname Liu?"
Qin Mi replied: "When my son was surnamed Liu today, he knew the surname Liu. "
Zhang Wen asked again: "The sun rises from the east, right?" (Soochow in the east)
Qin Mi replied: "Although the sun rises from the east, But it eventually fell from the west." (Shuhan is in the west)
Zhang Wen’s continuous questions, Qin Mi was not at all embarrassed. Qin Mi "answered questions like a ring, and responded to it." Qin Mi's extraordinary eloquence made Zhang Wen "admired."
It is commendable that when Qin Mi answered a series of difficult questions from Zhang Wen, he cleverly compared Liu’s Shu Han regime to the sky, and Zhang Wen had to say "Shu "Zhong Duo Junjie" sighed.
