Don't recall ever having that problem... at least not in the States!!!

Monday, January 7, 2013


There were three Navy Sailors stranded on an island… a Chief, a Deck Seaman, and an Ensign. The Chief looked over the water towards the mainland and guessed about twenty miles to shore. So he announced…

"I'm going to try to swim to shore."

So he swam out five miles… got really tired…  swam out to ten miles and was too tired to go on… so he drowned!

The second one, the Deck Seaman, said to himself…

 "I wonder if he made it. I guess it's better to try to get to the mainland than stay here and starve."

So he attempted to swim out. The Deck Seaman had a lot more endurance than the Chief, as he swam out ten miles before he even got tired. After fifteen miles, he was too tired to go on, so he drowned as well!!

So the Ensign thought to himself…

 "I wonder if they made it! I think I'd better try to make it, too."

So he swam out five miles… ten miles… fifteen miles… and finally nineteen miles from the island!! The shore to the mainland was just in sight, but he said…

"I'm too tired to go on!"

And swam back!!!
