Advice from Bob Knight

bobbykI don’t know much about basketball, but I do know that if you’re confronted with a chair-wielding maniac like Coach Bob Knight, that you should listen to him. Surprisingly, he was most interesting speaker I have heard in years. Rather than relay his career/professional tips, I’ll instead regurgitate three stories he told to prove his points….
An old man and his grandson are walking a donkey along the road when a car stops and the driver says, “hey old man, you should let your grandson ride on the mule”. So the kid jumps on and they carry on.
Soon enough, another car stops and the occupant says, “hey kid, get off that donkey, you should let the old man ride”. They swap places and continue on their way. (more…)


There was a scorpion, who wanted to cross a river, but cannot as he could not swim.
He asked a frog to carry him across a river. 
The frog was afraid of being stung, but the scorpion reassures him that if it stung, the frog would sink and the scorpion would drown as well. 
The logic appeals to the Frog, So he then agrees; nevertheless, in mid-river, the scorpion stings him, dooming them both.
When asked why, the scorpion explains, “I’m a scorpion; it’s my nature.”

To let profits run, need to keep Greed at bay, else it will Sting in each and every trade.
