The Philosophy of Beer

A philosophy professor stood before his class and had some items in front
of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a large empty
mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, rocks about 2" in
diameter. He then asked the students if the jar was full? They agreed that
it was.

So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the
jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the
open areas between the rocks. He then asked the students again if the jar
was full. They agreed it was.

The students laughed. The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it
into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. "Now," said
the professor, "I want you to recognize that this is your life."

"The rocks are the important things -- your family, your spouse, your
health, your children -- things that if everything else was lost and only
they remained, your life would still be full."

"The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house,
your car. The sand is everything else. The small stuff. If you put the
sand into the jar first, there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks."

"The same goes for your life. If you spend all your time and energy on
the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are
important to you."

"Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play wit
with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your partner
out dancing. There will always be time to go to work, clean the house,
give a dinner party and fix the disposal. Take care of the rocks first --
the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just
sand."

But then...

A student then took the jar which the other students and the professor
agreed was full, and proceeded to pour in a glass of beer. Of course the
beer filled the remaining spaces within the jar making the jar truly
full.

Which proves: that no matter how full your life is, there is always room
for a beer.

my kinda story Venom XR. I work on a uni campus, and I bet there are a few academics that would actually take hours and hours to really work that one out.

good laugh indeed.
