Coincidentally, if you set him on fire, the rest of his life is less than a day after you set him on fire.

I know, I was expanding the joke to my own ends.

No, what you were doing was explaining the punchline.

Alright, whatever. I don't care.

Well, he's still warm for the rest of his life, regardless of how long is life is.

He'll still be pretty burnt out from the experience.

"What am I?" I asked to myself.

"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Don't teach a man to fish and you feed yourself. He's a grown man. Fishing's not that hard."

Give a man a fish and it'll feed him for a day   
If you teach a man how to fish then you've failed as a capitalist.

User avatar #104 to #10 - kristovsky (11/24/2013) [-]
you've also failed as a capitalist if you give him a fish.
User avatar #105 to #104 - betars (11/24/2013) [-]
But he'll come back and ask fro more on the next day.
Then you can charge him for fishing lessons.

giving him a fish is an investment.
User avatar #106 to #105 - kristovsky (11/24/2013) [-]
surely the idea would be initially to sell him cheap fish, then raise the price when he is dependent on your fish supplies?
User avatar #114 to #106 - betars (11/24/2013) [-]
There are many ways to rip off people and get rich.
User avatar #116 to #114 - kristovsky (11/24/2013) [-]
agreed.
#112 to #10 - anon (11/24/2013) [-]
Not really, charge for the teaching, you'll receive payment. Teach enough people and the cost of fishes wil diminish thanks to excess of supply. Your cost of living is now smaller, and thanks to the wage you made, you can spend more money on other neater things. Now thats CAPITALISM
User avatar #37 to #10 - wulvkaan (11/24/2013) [-]
How so?

You are giving him tools with which he can survive on his own, without any more help.

Giving him the fish would be a kind of welfare, meaning teaching him how would make you fail as a socialist.
User avatar #58 to #37 - ragingflamingos (11/24/2013) [-]
The point is that you're supposed to sell him the fish.
User avatar #83 to #58 - undeadwill (11/24/2013) [-]
Not if you charge him for fishing lesson and sell him fishing gear. But in reality he realize he rather buy a fish. That's capitalism.
User avatar #134 to #58 - wulvkaan (11/25/2013) [-]
But, he said "give," which has an entirely different, denotation and connotation in this instance, than "sell."
User avatar #135 to #134 - ragingflamingos (11/25/2013) [-]
No see you give him the first fish to get him to try it. Then afterwards when he discovers he liked the fish he comes back and buys more. Soon he develops a crippling fish addicting and starts spending all of his money on it. Once bankrupt and homeless, the man continues to steal and prostitute himself before finally overdosing on trout in the back alley of a strip club. You meanwhile, are now rich.
#66 to #58 - amperor (11/24/2013) [-]
Well then couldn't he just accept payment in return for teaching him how to fish?
#87 to #66 - dandyhandycandy (11/24/2013) [-]
No, because if you sell the fish he has to continually come back to get more, wheras if you teach him to fish as well as you yourself, you get a one time payment and never get paid again.
