We get on a boat, never mind if it sinks, we paythe captain by throwing him overboard. And when hegets back onboard we say, captain, please don't beangry. And he forgives us this time. And so we throwhim overboard again just to make sure we have fullypaid the price we have set upon our passage. When hegets back onboard he is not anxious to forgive us,and he would like it much better if we would get offhis boat. There is nothing left for us to do but torepay him and hope that this time it will be enough.And so we throw him overboard again. When he comesaboard again we say, now this must be the last ofthis, we will pay no more, we want the journey tobegin.But it seems there will be no journey since we havegotten the captain used to a good thing. And so wemust spend the rest of our days throwing the captainoverboard.
