Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are camping. They pitch their tent under the stars and go to sleep. In the night, Holmes wakes Watson up: "Watson, look up at the stars, and tell me what you deduce."
Watson says, "I see millions of stars and even if a few of those have planets, it's quite likely there are some planets like Earth, and if there are a few planets like Earth out there, there might also be life."
Holmes replied: "Watson, you idiot, somebody stole our tent."
Two hunters are in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn't seem to be breathing. His eyes are rolled back in his head.
The other guy whips out his phone and calls 911. "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator, in a calm soothing voice, says: "Just take it easy, sir. First, let's make sure he's dead."
There's silence, then a shot.
The guy's voice comes back on the line. He says, "Okay, now what?"
