The tribal wisdom of the Dakota Indians, passed on from generation to
generation, says that:

"When you discover that you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount".

However, UK government when dealing with Bankers employs more advanced strategies, such as:

1. Making more oats available.
2. Changing riders.
3. Appointing a committee to study the horse.
4. Arranging to visit other countries to see how other cultures ride dead horses.
5. Lowering the standards so that dead horses can be included.
6. Reclassifying the dead horse as living-impaired.
7. Hiring outside contractors to ride the dead horse.
8. Harnessing several dead horses together to increase speed.
9. Providing additional funding and/or training to increase dead horse´s performance.
10. Appointing consultants to do a productivity study to see if lighter riders would improve the deadhorse´s performance.
11. Declaring that as the dead horse does not have to be fed, it is less costly, carries lower overhead and therefore contributes substantially more to the bottom line of the economy than do some other horses.
12. Rewriting the expected performance requirements for all horses.
13. Promoting the dead horse to a regulatory position.

If we learn just one thing from all this mess its that the Dakota Indians clearly oversimplified everything. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif


Beware the bearers of charts and graphs they will blind you with so much complexity that the obvious gets overlooked.

Wise saying... I guess the problem for some is recognising when your horse is dead.

Wise Indeed.

These days with our Technical Prowess. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif
we would do the following.


#1 Call the Vet - get them to do some CPR and get out the Paddles.

#2 Stick the horse in Cryogenic deep freeze.

#3 Attempt to clone the horse.

#4 Clone drops dead due to same cause.

#5 repeat.
