Points To Ponder

Give a man a fish...
As the old adage goes; Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. But teach a man to fish and he will... go out and buy expensive fishing equipment, stupid looking clothes, a sports utility vehicle, travel 1000 miles to the "hottest" fishing spot, and stand waist deep in cold water just so he can outsmart a fish. Average cost per fish: $395.68, but who’s counting?
