The National Weather Service

Late fall and the Indians on a remote reservation in North 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 be prepared.

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 a shitload of  firewood’

I truely believe that what should matter most in life is how you see yourself, not how someone else tries to convince you to see yourself. *****Life is not about "finding yourself"*****its about creating yourself.!!!!! I write and post things here because I like to think I am contributing some things of value to my world. Some times a little humor, some times things with a more serious tone, but hopefully always in good taste. If what I post occasionally bites a politician in the ass, all the better :>)
