A new forestry graduate receives his first 5-year posting way out in the
middle of a huge forest with no people around for miles.
Included in the survival gear that they give him, much to his surprise,
is a recipe for matzah balls.
When he asks why he's receiving a matzah ball recipe, he is told,
"Sometime, a few years down the road when the solitude *really* starts
to get to you, you're going to remember your matzah ball recipe. You're
going to get it out and start making some and before you know it you're
going to have ten Jewish women looking over your shoulder saying,
'That's not the correct way to make matzah balls."
