A motorist, driving by a ranch, hit and killed a calf that was
crossing the road. The driver went to the owner of the calf and
explained what had happened. He then asked what the animal was
"Oh, about $200 today," said the rancher. "But in six years it
would have been worth $900. So $900 is what I'm out."
The motorist sat down, wrote out a check, and handing it to the
farmer he said,
"Here is the check for $900.
It's post-dated six years from now."
