Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson decide to go on a camping trip. After dinner and a bottle of wine, they lay down for the night, and go to sleep.

Watson replied, “I see millions of stars”.

Watson pondered for a minute.
“Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets”.
“Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo”.
“Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three”.
“Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful and that we are small and insignificant”.
“Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow”.
“What does it tell you, Holmes?”
Holmes was silent for a minute, then spoke: “Watson, you idiot. Someone has stolen our tent!”
