Riding a Dead Horse

03 Nov 2017, 17:28

The tribal wisdom of the Dakota Indians, passed on from generation to generation, says that when you discover that you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount.

In modern education and government, however, a whole range of far more advanced strategies are often employed, such as:

1. Buying a stronger whip.

2. Changing riders.

3. Threatening the horse with termination.

4. Appointing a committee to study the horse.

5. Visiting other sites to see how others ride dead horses.

6. Lowering the standards so that dead horses can be included.

7. Re-classifying the dead horse as “living, impaired”.

8. Hiring outside contractors to ride the dead horse.

9. Harnessing several dead horses together to increase the speed.

10. Attempting to mount multiple dead horses in hopes that one of them will spring to life.

11. Providing additional funding and/or training to increase the dead horse’s performance.

12. Doing a productivity study to see if lighter riders would improve the dead horse’s performance.

13. Declaring that as the dead horse does not have to be fed, it is less costly, carries lower overhead, and therefore contributes substantially more to the bottom line of the economy than do some other horses.

14. Re-writing the expected performance requirements for all horses.

15. Promoting the dead horse to a supervisory position.

16. Look at yourself and determine why you are so selfish as to want to be riding the lifeless beast, then promptly spin on your boot heel and find a strong, healthy alive horse.

Do you NEIGHd some automation, try AutoHORSEkey. :lolno:

Yes, sometimes in life, in different situations, people wonder if they're riding a dead horse.
In such situations, for the more hopeful among us:
Shalamar - Second Time Around (Official Music Video) - YouTube
Carl Sagan - 'A Glorious Dawn' ft Stephen Hawking (Symphony of Science) - YouTube
Cheers just me.
