Have you ever noticed how some people make a fool of themselves because they they lack certain observation skills. This usually occurs from sheer laziness and is shown by many commentators when they leave stupid comments. Stupid because everyone who’s read the post can tell that they didn’t. Even if the blogger does not delete the comment and they still get a link back to their site everyone who reads the comment can see them for what they really are and will more likely than not give their blog a miss.
I got this email today which highlighted how important it is to observe what is going on around us, and I thought I would post it here for you all so that it may hopefully open your eyes to what is happening around you.
The Lone Ranger and Tonto went camping in the desert. After they got their Tent all set up, both men fell sound asleep. Some hours later, Tonto wakes the Lone Ranger and says,
‘Kemo Sabe, look Towards sky, what you see? ‘
‘The Lone Ranger replies, ‘I see millions of stars.’
‘What that tell you?’ asked Tonto.
The Lone Ranger ponders for a minute then says, ‘Astronomically speaking, it tells me there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.
Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo. Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three in the morning. Theologically, the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What’s it tell you, Tonto?’
‘You dumber than buffalo shit. It means someone stole the tent.’
OK, I couldn’t help myself, I know some of you Yanks may have heard this one before but it’s new to me and I thought it was bloody funny.
I also thought it was a good way of highlighting the importance of reading the post through before leaving a comment so that you don’t end up with egg on your face.
Personally I know I could refine my level of observation some, especially when asking the wife where to find things because it always turns out that it’s staring me straight in the face.
