Sherlock and Watson go camping

After a nice fire, roasting s’mores, and talking for a few hours, they finally crawl into their tent and go to sleep.

In the middle of the night, Sherlock shakes Watson awake. “Tell me Watson” he said “What can you deduce by looking at the stars?”

Watson, slightly puzzled, said “Well, I can deduce by the number of them that the universe must be incredibly vast, and contain billions of stars. Likely, all of those stars have planets, and I could deduce that statistically, there must be at least one other planet capable of supporting intelligent life.”

Seeing Sherlock shake his head, Watson continued. “And, I suppose that I could philosophically deduce that, compared to the infinite universe, we are insignificant specks, and are far less important than we believe ourselves to be.”

Sherlock shook his head again. “Watson you dumbass… someone stole our tent!”
