World’s best Memory

Several years ago a man was taking a trip by train. The train pulls into a station, and the man leaves train to stretch his legs. He sees and old Indian in the corner with a sign above him saying “World's Best Memory”. He walks over to him and asked the old Indian what he had for breakfast 20 years ago.

The Indian said, “Eggs”.

About then the train whistle blew and the man got back on the train.

20 years had past and the man was back on the train taking another trip when it pulled into this station. He once again leaves train to stretch his legs and sees the old Indian still there. The man walks up to him and putting his right hand up and saying, “How?”

The old Indian looks and him and says, “Scrambled”.

  1. So will I (continue to loan via Kiva). In the vast majority of cases, the borrowers have no other way to borrow the money they need. The normal avenues are closed to them due to their economic circumstances.
    The fact that Kiva borrowers return for future loans tells me that they understand the need to pay interest and that the rate they paid was acceptable given the results they experienced from earlier loans.
    A long time ago, I was paying 12% interest on a mortgage, because that’s what I could get at the time. It was acceptable to me because of the results (a house). Of course, I refinanced at lower rates as soon as I could – something I believe the Kiva borrowers do too from time to time. I’ve had loans get paid in full well before their eventual due date.
