    I recently found a good item from Douglas Adams: " A common mistake people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of compete fools . " ( boy he was right on target there  lol ).

    Great quote -- I hadn't heard it before.

    --- Thanks for the new posts.

    Motherinlaw: Yes I got quite a chuckle out of that item, I've met a number of people who are covered by that rule  lol.

    You never know who will provide an interesting quote. For example this one from Geraldine Ferraro: " It was not so long ago that people thought semiconductors were part-time orchestra leaders and microchips were very very small snack foods ".

    Hank Aaron was one of the greatest baseball players of all time, however Golf was not his bag ( sorry, bad-pun alert  lol ).

    Hank Aaron: " It took me 17 years to get 3,000 hits in baseball. I did it in one afternoon on the Golf-course ".
