Swimmology

Swimmology

A highly learned professor was traveling on a ship at sea. An illiterate sailor was also on the same ship.

Mid-journey they had a discussion.

The professor asked, "Old man, have you studied geology, the science of the earth?".

The old man replied humbly, "Sir, I am illiterate so I cannot read. I have not studied geology."

The professor then announced, "Old man, then you have wasted one-quarter of your life." The old man became very sad at the thought that he had wasted one-quarter of his life.

The next day the professor asked him, "Old man, have you studied meteorology, the science of weather?"

The old man replied humbly, "Sir, I am illiterate so I cannot read. I have not studied meteorology."

The professor then announced, "Old man, then you have wasted one-half of your life." The old man became very sad at the thought that he had wasted one-half of his life.

The next day the professor asked him, "Old man, have you studied zoology, the science of animal life?"

The old man replied humbly, "Sir, I am illiterate so I cannot read. I have not studied zoology."

The professor then announced, "Old man, then you have wasted three-quarters of your life." The old man became very sad at the thought that he had wasted three-quarters of his life.

On the forth day, it was the sailor's turn to ask a question. He came running to the professor crying, "Professor Sir, Professor Sir, have you studied swimmology, the science of swimming?"

The professor looked surprised and said, "No, I don't know how to swim."

The old man replied, "Oh Professor Sir, I am so sorry! You have wasted your whole life! This ship has struck a rock and it is about to sink. Those who can swim can swim that nearby island. All others will die."
