Aesop's Fables: The North Wind and the Sun. If only there had been Sunshine forecast.

I posted this previously (Aesop's Fables: The North Wind and the Sun) but its a little more omnious now, well, now we have this Video.. ;)

"..has been indicating heavy amounts of rainfall" (if only it was Sunshine, poor MS) "across South West Iowa. Argh, Microsoft recommends upgrade to Windows 10, Argh, What should I do? Don't you love it when that pops up. Argh. Erm. Hmmm..".

"The Winds have been vey gusty overnight aswell. Its that Windows 10 right, that's what people are going it say - Don't do it!"

Here again, if you missed it last time (esp. for Microsoft)


Aesop's Fables: The North Wind and the Sun

(Have the folk at Microsoft never heard of it? They really need to)

The North Wind boasted of great strength. The Sun argued that there was great power in gentleness. "We shall have a contest," said the Sun.

Far below, a man traveled a winding road. He was wearing a warm winter coat.

"As a test of strength," said the Sun, "Let us see which of us can take the coat off of that man."

"It will be quite simple for me to force him to remove his coat," bragged the Wind.

The Wind blew so hard, the birds clung to the trees. The world was filled with dust and leaves. But the harder the wind blew down the road, the tighter the shivering man clung to his coat.

Then, the Sun came out from behind a cloud. Sun warmed the air and the frosty ground. The man on the road unbuttoned his coat.The sun grew slowly brighter and brighter. Soon the man felt so hot, he took off his coat and sat down in a shady spot.

"How did you do that?" said the Wind.

"It was easy," said the Sun, "I lit the day. Through gentleness I got my way."
