Wise Vs Fool

Here is true story

Fool being a fool didn’t care one bit.

As Murphy’s law would have it, they lost the way and it started getting really dark.

Wise man did a thorough analyses and concluded that its getting dark, going forward makes no sense and decided to go back following the marks and signs to save his life.

Fool kept going forward without thinking much.

Within 15 minutes fool was out of the forest & reached a village where he met a hospitable local who fed him and gave him place to stay the night over.

Wise man was going back without much problems, the signs and marks were very helpful, but at one of those marks, a hungry tiger was waiting.
