Mark the Spot

Mark the Spot
(where the sword fell into the river)

A man from the state of Chu was crossing a river. In the boat, his sword fell into the water. Immediately he made a mark on the side of the boat.

"This is where my sword fell off," he said.

When the boat stopped moving, he went into the water to look for his sword at the place where he had marked the boat.

The boat had moved but the sword had not. Is this not a very foolish way to look for the lost sword?
