    I have a son in law who often Emails me a thought for the day. Some are simple, some are great some are both. Todays simply said " Improvise, adapt and overcome."
    This could be a topic for a new thread. Any suggestions?

    My little calendar's thought for the day "Experience is the art of not making the same mistake too many times" :)

    I think I saw this in some dodgy Army presentation once.

    'To win without fighting is best'. Sun Tsu.

    Brings up all sorts of thoughts.

    Isn't there a quote thread? Or is this different.

    One on ABC the other day .. Virginia Trioli - to Anthony Green I think... "so are you saying that people are becoming more individual, more inclined not to follow the pack?"
    "yes exactly"
    "well I don't know about the rest, but I'm not!!"
    (larfs). - she's quite a wit that one :)

    lol - beauty nioka ;) - and puts into perspective the practicality of the option discussed elsewhere where earthlings would try to escape the camanity of the sun dying (5 billion years?) by somehow going somewhere else ?? (but where , and how far, and at what speed, and... lol - we'd better get started if we're gonna make it in time to retire lol.

    The one thing that unites all human beings,regardless of age,gender,religion,economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside,
    WE ALL BELIEVE THAT WE ARE ABOVE AVERAGE DRIVERS.

    Your guess is as good as mine. If I get to go there and back I'll let you know. I'm suprised there is any space left up there after seeing this.

    lol - thought for the day - the judge handing down his verdict (youngster caught for minor pot smoking matter) .. draws two circles...
    "see the big circle, that's the size of your brain before you smoke pot; and see the little circle, that's the size after"..

    and if you mess around with trafficking, see the little circle? that's the size of Uranus before you go to jail, and; see the big circle? .. "

    as for the tipping comp
    a) can anyone catch stockmaster
    b) just wish I was still on FMG in reality
    c) maybe there should be more "points" for betting on a $17 stock rather than a $0.15 stock ? - notice how I diplomatically avoided the word "penny dreadful"? ;)

    From letters to the editor in the weekend Australian:

    The writer is referring to the war in Iraq -- but I thought how applicable to those that "loss chase" or try and "average down"

    Quote:

    As a cadet officer at Duntroon, I was taught the principle of "never reinforce failure" as it would surely lead to a greater defeat.

    Unquote

    Love it!

    Cheers

    Who said it had to be serious ? I'd hate to think all our thoughts had to be serious.

    Francois Rabelais 1495 to 1553 - on his deathbed...
    "the farce is finished. I go to seek a vast perhaps."

    PS "a skeptic is a person who would ask God for his ID card" ;)

    Winston Churchill ... "I always avoid prophesying beforehand - because it is much better policy to prophesy after the event has already taken place".

    Winston Churchill ... "It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations" :)
