Tom Waits says

"My kids are starting to notice I'm a little different from the other dads. "Why don't you have a straight job like everyone else?" they asked me the other day. I told them this story: In the forest, there was a crooked tree and a straight tree. Every day, the straight tree would say to the crooked tree, "Look at me...I'm tall, and I'm straight, and I'm handsome. Look at you...you're all crooked and bent over. No one wants to look at you." And they grew up in that forest together. And then one day the loggers came, and they saw the crooked tree and the straight tree, and they said, "Just cut the straight trees and leave the rest." So the loggers turned all the straight trees into lumber and toothpicks and paper. And the crooked tree is still there, growing stronger and stranger every day."

Tom Waits nu spune nimic original.El doar canta asa.Autorul parabolei este Kautilya,filosof indian din secolul al-III-a I.Hr

Anonimul de mai sus prin °loggersi° se refera cumva la taietori de lemne ? Pune in dificultate pe (inca) vorbitorii de limba romana.

Ce ne-am face fara frustrații semidocți care rătăcesc pe internet?
