Two buddies are fishing, but they haven’t caught anything all day. Then another fisherman walks by with a huge load of fish. They ask him, “Excuse me, but where did you get all those fish?”
The other fisherman replies, “If you just go down the stream until the water isn’t salty, you will find a ton of hungry fish.”
They thank him and go on their way. Fifteen minutes later, one fisherman says to the other, “Fill the bucket up with water and see if the water is salty.”
He dips the bucket in the stream and drinks some. “Nope. Still salty.” Thirty minutes later, he asks him to check again.
“Nope, still salty.” One hour later they check again. “Nope. Still salty.”
“This isn’t good,” one fisherman finally says. “We have been walking for almost two hours and the water is still salty!”
“I know,” says the other. “And the bucket is almost empty!”
