Nice JOKE..... serious...!
A Foreign lawyer and a Sri Lankan are sitting next to each other on a long flight.
The lawyer is thinking that Sri Lankans are so dumb that he could get over on them easy...So the lawyer asks if the Sri Lankan would like to play a fun game.
The Sri Lankan is tired and just wants to take a nap so he politely declines and tries to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists, and says that the game is a lot of fun.
I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me only $5; you ask me one, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500, he says.
This catches the Sri Lankan's attention and to keep the lawyer quiet, he agrees to play the game.
The lawyer asks the first question. 'What's the distance from The Earth to the Moon?'
The Sri Lankan doesn't say a word, reaches in his pocket pulls out a five-dollar bill and hands it to the lawyer.
Now, it's the Sri Lankan's turn. He asks the lawyer, 'What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?'
The lawyer uses his laptop and searches all references he could find on the Net. He sends e-mails to all the smart friends he knows, all to no avail.
After one hour of searching he finally gives up. He wakes up the Sri Lankan and hands him $500.
The Sri Lankan pockets the $500 and goes right back to sleep.
The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes the Sri Lankan up and asks, 'Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?'
The Sri Lankan reaches in his pocket, hands the lawyer $5 and goes back to sleep.
Moral of the story - Don't mess with us Sri Lankans.

they are all mind-wrought. If with an impure mind
a person speaks or acts suffering follows him like the
wheel that follows the foot of the ox.

5. Hatred is never appeased by hatred in this world. By non-hatred alone is hatred appeased. This is a law eternal.
6. There are those who do not realize that one day we all must die. But those who do realize this settle their quarrels.
