Technology It was autumn, and the Indians on the remote reservation askedtheir new Chief if the winter was going to be cold or mild.Since he was an Indian Chief in a modern society, he had neverbeen taught the old secrets, and when he looked at the sky, hecouldn´t tell what the heck the weather was going to be.Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he replied to his tribethat the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the membersof the village should collect wood so they would be prepared forit.But also being a practical leader, after several days he got anidea.He went to the phone booth, called the National Weather Serviceand asked, "Is the coming winter going to be cold?""It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold indeed,"the Meteorologist at the weather service responded.So the Chief went back to his people and told them to collecteven more wood in order to be prepared.One week later he called the National Weather Service again. "Isit going to be a very cold winter?" he asked."Yes," the man at National Weather Service again replied, "it´sgoing to be a very cold winter."The Chief again went back to his people and ordered them tocollect every scrap of wood they could find.Two weeks later he called the National Weather Service again."Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be verycold?""Absolutely," the man replied. "It looks like it´s going to beone of the coldest winters ever.""How can you be so sure?" the Chief asked.The weatherman replied, "The Indians are collecting firewoodlike crazy."
