Ok, quick sneak preview… the talk I have been working on for Climbers’ Forum next week revolves around resilience, a super-interesting topic that I will be pestering you all with in the future, fear ye not!

One point that struck me was a text by a psychologist saying that in his opinion a key element to psychological resilience is humor.

Which everyone can probably confirm: You find yourself in a really grim, unpleasant situation, someone cracks a joke and it somehow puts things back in perspective.

So, for this morning I thought I would share with you the shortest joke I know…

Velcro. A rip-off!

Yup. That would qualify as being pretty short. It is also true.
