The world's smartest man

Post by heinzs » Sat May 17, 2014 9:41 am

Bill Gates, a Buddhist Priest and a hippie were flying in a small plane from LA to Denver. Suddenly the pilot came into the cabin and said, "I have bad news. The engine is on fire and the plane is going down. There are only three parachutes, and I'm taking one." Whereupon he grabbed a pack and jumped out of the plane.

Bill Gates said, "I'm the smartest, richest man in the world, so I deserve a parachute," so he grabbed one and jumped from the plane. That only left one parachute for two people.

The Buddhist Priest said to the hippie, "My son, I'm an old man and have lived a wonderful life, but you have your whole future ahead of you. You take the last parachute and save yourself."

The hippie just laughed... "Not to worry. The world's smartest man just jumped out of a plane wearing my backpack."

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing, Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before
