On a Camping Trip


Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson go on a camping trip. After a good
dinner and a bottle of wine, they retire for the night, and go to sleep.
Some hours later, Holmes wakes up and nudges his faithful friend.
"Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see."
"I see millions and millions of stars, Holmes" replies Watson.
"And what do you deduce from that?"
Watson ponders for a minute.
"Well, astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies
and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn
is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a
quarter past three. Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful
day tomorrow. Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful, and that
we are a small and insignificant part of the universe. What does it tell you,
Holmes is silent for a moment. "Watson, you idiot!" he says. "Someone
has stolen our tent!"
