救人 Saving Lives
At a pre-med university in St. Louis, we had to take a difficult class in physics. One day the professor was discussing a particularly complicated concept. A student rudely interrupted to ask Why do we have to learn this stuff?

聪明的马 A smart horse
There was a farmer who fell and broke his hip while he was plowing(耕地) , and his horse immediately galloped(疾驰，飞奔) five miles to the nearest town and returned, carrying a doctor on his back.

"Well, he’s not really so smart," the farmer said. "The doctor he brought back was a veterinarian!"
