Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Sunday, December 4

The precise date

A tourist is traveling with a guide through one of the thickest jungles in Latin America when he comes across an ancient Mayan temple. The tourist is entranced by the temple, and asks the guide for details. The guide tells him that archaeologists are carrying out excavations, and are still finding great treasures. The tourist then asks how old the temple is.

"This temple is 2503 years old," replies the guide.

Impressed at this accurate dating, the tourist inquires as to how the guide was able to give this precise figure.

"Easy," replies the guide. "The archaeologists said the temple was 2500 years old, and that was three years ago."
