    It was October and the Indians on a remote reservation asked their Chief if the coming winter was going to be cold or mild. Since he was a Chief he had been taught the old way secrets but his eyes were failing. 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 quite cold and that the members of the village should collect firewood to be prepared.

    His grandson was more attuned to modern technology and asked the chief to consult a scientific source. He refused out of pride but being a practical leader he thought about his grandson's advice, 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 from early indications 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 looking like it's going to be a colder winter than we thought even a week ago!"

    So the Chief went back to his people and told them to collect double the 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 looking like it's going to be a colder winter than we could have imagined even a week ago!"

    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 ever in recorded history."

    "How can you be so sure?" the Chief asked.

    The weatherman replied, "The @*#&$%'ed Indians are collecting firewood like crazy."
