Have You Ever Danced?
> An old prospector shuffled into the town of El Indio, Texas leading an
> old tired mule. The old man headed straight for the only saloon in
> town, to clear his parched throat. He walked up to the saloon and tied
> his old mule to the hitch rail. As he stood there, brushing some of the
> dust from his face and clothes, a young gunslinger stepped out of the
> saloon with a gun in one hand and a bottle of whiskey in the other.
> The young gunslinger looked at the old man and laughed, saying, "Hey old
> man, have you ever danced?" The old man looked up at the gunslinger and
> said, "No, I never did dance... Never really wanted to."
> A crowd had gathered as the gunslinger grinned and said, "Well, you old
> fool, you're gonna' dance now," and started shooting at the old man's
> feet. The old prospector, not wanting to get a toe blown off, started
> hopping around like a flea on a hot skillet. Everybody was laughing,
> fit to be tied.
> When his last bullet had been fired, the young gunslinger, still
> laughing, holstered his gun and turned around to go back into the
> saloon. The old man turned to his pack mule, pulled out a
> double-barreled shotgun, and cocked both hammers. The loud clicks
> carried clearly through the desert air.
> The crowd stopped laughing immediately. The young gunslinger heard the
> sounds too, and he turned around very slowly. The silence was almost
> deafening. The crowd watched as the young gunman stared at the old
> timer and the large gaping holes of those twin barrels.
> The barrels of the shotgun never wavered in the old man's hands, as he
> quietly said, "Son, have you ever kissed a mule's behind?"
> The gunslinger swallowed hard and said, "No sir..... But... I've always
> wanted to."
> There are a few lessons for us all here:
> Never be arrogant.
> Don't waste ammunition.
> Whiskey makes you think you're smarter than you are.
> Always, always make sure you know who has the power.
> Don't mess with old men, they didn't get old by being stupid.

If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.
