Rattlesnake Avoidance Training for
THE MEANING OF LIFE
Once a man told his son that he had in his youth
met a guru who told him the meaning of life. He told
the son that he must seek out the guru for himself and
find him wherever he was so that he, too, could learn
the meaning of life.
The son traveled to all corners of the earth looking
for the guru. After fifty years he finally came across
an old guru on a mountain crag in Tibet.
"You are he, are you not?" he asked the guru. "You are
the one who told my father the meaning of life."
"Yes," said the old guru. "I told him and he said that
one day his son would come and seek me out."
"Then, tell me, guru!" cried the man. "Tell me the
meaning of life."
"Ah, my child," said the guru. "The meaning of life is
a flowing river."
"What?" replied the man exasperated. "Are you kidding?
I've traveled the earth for fifty years in search of
you just to have you tell me that the meaning of life
is a flowing river?"
The guru blanched. "You mean it isn't?" he said.
I read Gabriel García Marquez's first book, RELATO DE
UN NÁUFRAGO about a Colombian guy (Luís Alejandro
Velasco) on a destroyer that sank and he had to float
around in a rowboat forever. Here he is afterwards
showing where he floated.
He couldn't speak
English but he had an American girlfriend when he was
stationed in Alabama. She was named Mary Address.
WHAT AN ODD
Oh, the most interesting thing
happened today. It's a little eerie. Take a look at this
photo of me in the tent at Mammoth Cave, Kentucky on
April 5, 1958 a couple of months before we moved to
Arizona. I just found it a couple of days ago. Well, I
got my digitalized home movies back today and in one of
them I saw myself in the tent at Mammoth Cave. I said,
"Oh, my parents took movies that day as well." Then, I
see my sister Wendy walk up and take my picture! It was
the picture I only just two days before had found.
Not only do I have the picture
but also a video of it being taken FIFTY-EIGHT YEARS
How rich and abundant life is.
I digitalized the home
movies and saw a picture of me with an old favorite coat
of mine and realized I still had the one of the buttons!
I had saved it from the coat for fifty-eight years. Here
I am wearing
it in 1957!
And what about THIS button (below)? Is it the one on the
coats here? I clearly remember the buttons as being
black with an anchor in the middle, but there is one
that seems lighter in color.
NOW THIS IS INTERESTING. ON

Von Horst breathed a sigh of
relief as he wiped the perspiration from his
forehead. "What a world!" he muttered,
wondering how man had survived amidst such
savage surroundings. Farther down the little
valley he now saw many animals grazing.
There were deer and antelope and the great,
shaggy bos so long extinct upon the outer
crust. Among them were little,
horse-like creatures, no larger than a fox
terrier, resembling the
Hyracotherium of the Eocene, early
progenitors of the horse, which but added to
the amazing confusion of birds, mammals, and
reptiles of various eras of the evolution of
life on the outer crust.

I enjoyed Andrew
Curry’s article “Tales from the Pit” in the
January issue. I found a bit of extra
interest in the article as I read the words
“fox terrier” to describe the size of Eocene
horses. I remember reading with interest
Stephen Jay Gould’s essay, “The Case of the
Creeping Fox Terrier Clone” in his book
Bully for Brontosaurus, in which he disputes
the accuracy of the fox terrier size
It is no
criticism of the author of the fine article
on fossils to take notice of the remarkable
power of the phrase coined by Fairfield
Osborn (1857-1935) and to marvel that it
should be possessed of such longevity and
ubiquity without regard to its accuracy.
I happen to like
Edgar Rice Burroughs, the author of Tarzan
of the Apes and remember his 1937
book, Back to the Stone age, in which the
protagonist gazes upon the fauna of the land
of Pellucidar among which, Burroughs writes,
“were little, horse-like creatures, no
larger than a fox terrier.”
Alas, as Gould
writes in his essay:
estimate I have seen for the body size of
Hyracotherium (MacFadden, 1986) ... cites a
weight of some twenty-five kilograms, or

Von Schnodly, the world-famous physicist was
leading a lucky group of people on a tour of the
new observatory. The professor pointed to a
gigantic telescope pointing out through the open
roof under a starry sky. "This ladies and
gentlemen,” he said. "Is the best telescope that
currently exists. It can not only detect distant
stars but possibly distant planets. Through the
use of this device we can see developing new
galaxies and stars and predict faraway events
such as supernovae as well as events more near
to home so to speak such as asteroid strikes on
the earth. Under the proper conditions a
telescope like this has not only astronomical
uses but meteorological as well. In plainer
words it could even predict hurricanes and other
weather events. And speaking of which, we had
best hurry through the tour because it is going
to rain within the next twenty minutes!"
"Gosh, professor," someone
said. "How can you tell?"
"My corn hurts."
