Today is Chinese Moon festival so I want to share a story about moon with you.

Once upon a time, there was a woodman called "Wu Gan".

Wu has been yearning for immortality.

He was apprenticed to an immortal.

However, he was too lazy to learn things.

No matter what immortal taught him, such as medicine or chess, he always gave up within three days.

Furious immoral banished him to the moon, asking him to chop down a three with an ax as a punishment.

However, whenever Wu Gan had done halfway through his work, he always lazily took a nap.

After he waked up, the three had grew back so Wu has been chopping down the three on the moon until now.

Don't you think this story is similar to the Greek Myth "Sisyphuss' Stone"?

Sisyphuss had to roll an immense boulder up a hill but the boulder always rolled down when it touched the peak.
