Survival Guide

 	A Scout Master was teaching his boy scouts about survival in the desert.

 	"What are the three most important things you should bring with you in
 	case you get lost in the desert?" he asked. Several hands went up, and
 	many important things were suggested such as food, matches, etc. Then
 	one little boy in the back eagerly raised his hand. "Yes Timmy, what are
 	the three most important things you would bring with you?" asked the
 	Scout Master. 

 	Timmy replied: "A compass, a canteen of water, and a deck of cards."
 	"Why's that Timmy?"

 	"Well," answered Timmy, "the compass is to find the right direction, the
 	water is to prevent dehydration..."

 	"And what about the deck of cards?" asked the Scout Master impatiently.

 	"Well, Sir, as soon as you start playing Solitaire, someone is bound to
 	come up behind you and say, "Put that red nine on top of that black ten!"
