Oz truth

Friend of mine (from Australia) sent me this:
Ninety year old aboriginal elder sat in his humpy eyeing two government 'Welfare' officials sent to interview him .
One official said to him: "You have observed the white man for 90 years.You have seen his wars and his technological advances.
You have seen his progress and the damage he has done."The elder nodded in agreement.The official continued: "Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did the whitefella go wrong?"
The elder stared at the two government officials for over a minute and then he calmly replied:
"When whitefella found the land, blackfellas were running it.
No taxes, No debt, Plenty kangaroo, Plenty fish, Women did all the work, Medicine man free, Aboriginal man spent all day hunting and fishing, All night having sex." Then the elder leaned back and smiled:
"Only whitefella bloody stupid enough to think he could improve a system like that."
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

It's similar to what one African said,
"When the white man came here he had the Bible and we had the land, now we have the Bible and he has the land"
