    Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping trip.

    After a good meal and a bottle of wine, they lay down for the night and went to sleep.

    Some hours later Holmes woke up, nudged his faithful friend and said, "Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see."

    Watson replied, "I see millions of stars."

    "What does that tell you?"

    Watson pondered for a moment and replied,

    "Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.

    Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo.

    Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three.

    Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful and that we are small and insignificant.

    Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.

    What does it tell you, Holmes ?"

    Holmes was silent for a minute, then spoke.

    "Watson, you idiot. It tells me that someone has stolen our tent."
