Once upon a time an old man spread rumors that his neighbor was a thief. As a result, the young man was arrested. Days later the young man was proven innocent. After been released he sued the old man for wrongly accusing him.
In court the old man told the Judge : “They were just comments, didn’t harm anyone.”
The judge, before passing sentence on the case, told the old man : “Write all the things you said about him on a piece of paper. Cut them up and on the way home, throw the pieces of paper out. Tomorrow, come back to hear the sentence.”
The next day, the judge told the old man : “Before receiving the sentence, you will have to go out and gather all the pieces of paper that you threw out yesterday.”
The old man said : “I can’t do that ! The wind spread them and I won’t know where to find them.”
The judge then replied : “The same way, simple comments may destroy the honor of a man to such an extent that one is not able to fix it.”
Two caterpillars are escaping a spider.
Two caterpillars are escaping a spider. They climb up a branch and get to the edge, but realize they are now trapped…
“Hold on tight!” says the first caterpillar and he quickly chews through the branch.
It snaps and they begin to fall, but he grabs two protruding twigs and uses them to steer the branch through the air with grace and finesse.
“That’s amazing!!” says the second caterpillar. “How in the hell are you doing that?!”
The first caterpillar scoffs.
“Am I the only one in the whole darn forest who knows how to drive a stick!?”
