The Farmer's Donkey: A Fable for Our Time

One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried
piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out a way to get him
out. Finally he decided it was probably impossible and the animal was
old and the well was dry anyway, so it just wasn't worth it to try and
retrieve the donkey. So the farmer asked his neighbors to come over and
help him cover up the well. They all grabbed shovels and began to shovel
dirt into the well.

At first, when the donkey realized what was happening he cried horribly.
Then, to everyone's amazement, he quieted down and let out some happy
brays. A few shovel loads later, the farmer looked down the well to see
what was happening and was astonished at what he saw. With every shovel
of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was shaking it off and taking a
step up. (Shifting)

As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal,
he continued to shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, to
everyone's amazement, the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well
and trotted off!

Moral: Life is going to shovel dirt on you. The trick to getting out of
the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Every adversity can be
turned into a stepping stone. The way to get out of the deepest well is
by never giving up but by shaking yourself off and taking a step up.

What happens to you isn't nearly as important as how you react to it.

Nice, but some of these platitudes can get to be a bit much. I wouldn't
dare tell that platitude to those who suffered in the Concentration Camps,
or even worse, never made it out. And yes, I'm aware of the exceptions,
like Viktor Frankl. But for most of us, I don't think so.

Very inspirational. I only wish it could reach some, including our glorious
leader, who could set an example. Well, I guess we should count our
blessings, as we already had one, at least.

Ufda. Like I said, article was not interesting enough for me to
try to get past whatever is going wonky. Such is life - I'm "too
busy" trying to figure out how to map the alumacantor circles for a
Astrolabe. (I can figure out how to do it with a compass and rule
{aka Geometry Old School} but when I trig out the numbers, they're not
making sense. Guess I'm going to have to construct one to scale,
measure the drawing, and work back from that.)



Somewhat OT but youve piqued my interest: google hasnt heard of an
alumacantor so what is it?


Ah, there's the problem, I misspelled it. "Almucantar" from the
Arabic 'sundial'.

You want to look up Astrolabe (the predecessor to the sextant).
The Almucantar circles are how circles of latitude are transferred
from a sphere (the earth) to a plane by stereographic projection.
https://wikivisually.com/wiki/Astrolabe#Construction

While still OT all q interesting.
That's a very good article but I found
https://www.math.ubc.ca/~cass/courses/m30901a/montero/math309project.html (word wrap)


Fnord - "not found on this server"

try wait -okay, it responded tot he Hammer of reason.

Thanks, I have found this before. I'm missing something,
somewhere along the lines. "Not making sense". And I am tired.

Sigh, I channel Winnie the Pooh, and become "a bear of very little
brain, and long words [equations] bother me."


Slightly easier to read. And it contains a transcript of part of
Chaucer's explanation of use.
I also found a maple treatise where the author complains he could find
no document expounding the calculations so he had to do it all himself.
Trouble is you need maple to read the actual diagrams and they want $239
for a personal licence : so that's that.

The frustrating part of this is that goggling "constructing an
astrolabe" gets all sorts of pre-printed templates, but very little on
the mechanics of calculating where the points for the various
latitudes are located. I found myself measuring the constructed
diagram and seeing if my calculations "worked". Grumble, I had a URL

Indeed. Spherical trig: too many cosines herr mozart.

I'm going to assume you mean the POTUS (I'm in the UK!)

However, ALL leaders should watch and understand what Frankl says.

Well, I guess we should count our

Sadly, I'm not quite sure what you mean, Bill. Will you please rephrase?
(if you have the time).

He's only interested in using you.


That is totally untrue, as well you know.



I'm actually an ER/Family Doctor. Or was, before I retired.

Psychiatry is .... boring. You choose their prescriptions from
5 or 6 standard drugs and stitch them up when they cut each other (or
themselves). Simple protocol, nothing as exciting as an ER.
