  • Predicting The Weather

    It's late fall and the Indians on a remote reservation in South Dakota
    asked their new chief if the coming winter was going to be cold or mild.

    Since he was a chief in a modern society, he had never been taught the
    old secrets. When he looked at the sky, he couldn't tell what the winter
    was going to be like.

    Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he told his tribe that the winter
    was indeed going... to be cold and that the members of the village
    should collect firewood to be prepared.

    But, being a practical leader, after several days, he got an idea. He
    went to the phone booth, called the National Weather Service and asked,
    'Is the coming winter going to be cold?'

    'It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold,' the meteorologist
    at the weather service responded.

    So the chief went back to his people and told them to collect even more
    firewood in order to beprepared.

    A week later, he called the National Weather Service again. 'Does it
    still look like it is going to be a very cold winter?'

    'Yes,' the man at National Weather Service again replied, 'it's going to
    be a very cold winter.'

    The chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect
    every scrap of firewood they could find.

    Two weeks later, the chief called the National Weather Service again.
    'Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?'

    'Absolutely,' the man replied. 'It's looking more and more like it is
    going to be one of the coldest winters we've ever seen.'

    'How can you be so sure?' the chief asked.

    The weatherman replied, 'The Indians are collecting firewood like
    crazy.'

    Remember this..... whenever you get advice from a government official

    Teach your kids about taxes..........eat 30 percent of their ice cream.
