English term or phrase:Because he had no earthly idea
The young Indian boy gets accepted to Harvard. He leaves the reservation. He graduates at the top of his class. He gets hired on with a prestigious brokerage house on Wall Street. Over the next few years he becomes the whiz kid, making millions of dollars. Then one day he gets a call from his tribe. They want him to come back and be chief. His heritage overrides his desire for fortune and he goes back to the reservation.
The first day as chief, all the elders of the tribe come in his tent and ask the important question, "How much wood should we collect for the winter?" Because he had no earthly idea, he told them he would have an answer for them in an hour. After all the elders filed out of his tent, he flipped open his cell phone and called the local weather station.
