... an aphorism of George Bernard Shaw: "If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas."

I agree with the pool idea Richyrich, :)

I'm afraid we're in the wrong place here.
Perhaps we should move to the Mint Cafe for a further discussion on the subject.

One of my favorite quotes is in my signature. It is latin for "if you want peace, prepare for war".

Other than that i really like this

-Frank Zappa
We all know that light travels faster than sound. That's why certain people appear bright until you hear them speak. -Albert Einstein

Look at me, see if I am poor, or my people either. The whites may get me at last, as you say, but I will have good times till then. You are fools to make yourselves slaves to a piece of fat bacon, some hard-tack, and a little sugar and coffee.

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he, by peddling second rate technology, led them into it in the first place, and continues to do so today.
