A triumphal feast was scheduled in a village and, in order to ensure that all might enjoy in the feast without imposing upon any few, the villagers all agreed that each would put in one bottle of his best wine, into a great cask for the occasion.

However, upon reflection, one villager reasoned that, if he filled his bottle with water, the dilution would be so slight, no one would notice.

So, the day of the feast arrived, and the great cask was tapped, and, wonder of wonders…

Nothing but water poured forth!

Every villager had reasoned alike – my bit will not be missed!
