I believe the past is relevant, sometimes more than others of course. In most cases we are seeing history being repeated, so it is most relevant.

Redneck Engineers:

      Bubba and Junior were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking up.  

      A woman walked by and asked what they were doing. "We're supposed to find the height of the flagpole," said Bubba, "but we don't have a ladder."  

      The woman took a wrench from her purse, loosened a few bolts, and laid the pole down.  

      Then she took a tape measure from her pocket, measured the pole, and said, "Eighteen feet, six inches," and walked away.  

      Junior shook his head and laughed, "Ain't that just like a dumb blonde! We asked for the height, and she gives us the length!"
