    Trophy Points:
    There was a software engineer, who used to develop programs on his Pentium machine, sitting under a tree on the banks of a river. He used to earn his bread by selling those programs in the Sunday market.

    One day, while he was working, his machine tumbled off the table and fell in the river.

    Encouraged by his childhood story of the lumberjack and axe, he started praying for the river Goddess. River Goddess wanted to test him and so appeared only after one month of rigorous prayers. The engineer told her that he lost his computer in the river. As usual, the Goddess wanted to test his honesty.

    She picked ! up a match box and asked "Is this your computer ?".
    Disappointed by the Goddess' lack of computer awareness, "No" replied the engineer.

    Then she picked up a pocket sized calculator and asked if that was it.
    Annoyed by this, the engineer said "No, not at all" and also thought of educating the Goddess about computers.

    Then she picked up his Pentium and asked if it was his.
    The engineer, left with no option, sighed and said "Yes !" and took his machine.

    The Goddess was happy for his honesty and was about to give the previous objects also to him. But even before she could make the offer, the engineer asked the Goddess," Don't you know that you should show me some better computers, before bringing up my own ?" Goddess, apparently angered at this, replied, "I know that, you stupid donkey! The first two things I showed you were Millennium and Trillennium, the latest computers from IBM" and disappeared. The Pentium followed her.

    Moral of the story:
    If you don't know much, better keep quiet.
