Billy Bob is told of a govenment project in which qualifying individuals can go to college for free. Figuring, what have I go to lose, he decides to apply to the local JUCO. To his surprise, he meets an old friend at the college on the day of his appointment with the councelor. They speak and ask each other what they plan to take and neither really have an idea. Then Billy Bob is called into the councelor's office. After a few moments of conversation, the counselor says: "Well William, I think you need to start out with some English, History, Logic ..." Billy Bob immediately asked: "What's Logic?" The counselor responded: "Well, my good man, logic is a means by which we can make factual conclusions when given a small amount of information. Let me give you an example. Do you own a weed eater?" Billy Bob: "Yes sir, I own a weed eater." Counselor: "From that fact, I can assume that you have a yard" Billy Bob: "That's right." Counselor: "Considering that you have a yard, I can further assume that you own a house." Billy Bob: "Yes sir." Counselor: "Next, since you own a house, I might guess that you are married." Billy Bob: "For ten years." Counselor: "Finally, knowing that you are married, I should be able to safely say that you are a heterosexual." Billy Bob: "Man, that logic is pretty neat stuff, sign me up." When Billy Bob leaves the concelor's office, his friend immediately asks him: "What happened?" Billy Bob: "Oh, I'm takin' English, History, Logic ..." Friend: "What's Logic?" Billy Bob: "Let me give you an example. Do you own a weed eater." Friend: "No" Billy Bob: "FAG!"
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage - to move in the opposite direction. - Ernst F. Schumacher
