Where am I now?
I'm sure we all have our favourite aphorisms...

I'll wait whilst you look it up.


OK? Right.
Being my favourites these are not quite the usual type, but they amuse me.
You can all add your own.

Psychology is like pulling habits out of a rat.

Getting things done around here is like mating elephants -
It's carried out at a high level.
It's accompanied by a lot of noise.
It takes two years to produce a result.

They said 'cheer up, it could be worse.'
So I did...

...and it was.
Does this count...?

Life is like an Alaskan dog sled team, unless your the lead dog - the scenery never changes...
instead of "we'll just cross that bridge when we come to it" i like "we'll just jump off that bridge when we come to it"
*A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
*The trouble with the rat race is that even if you win you are still a rat.
*The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits
*Only two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the former.
Fighting on the internet is like entering the special olympics. Even if you win you're still...ya know..."special".

There are only 10 types of people in the world. Those who understand binary, and those who don't.

Oh GAWD. I laugh about what a nerd you are, but the fact that I understand that...makes me as big a nerd as you are. *sigh*

You wish toots! :p

Ok, ok...so I guess it's not possible to be as big a nerd as you...but...it still makes me a nerd. It was bound to happen eventually. I'm surrounded by 'the nerd'. Makes it pretty difficult not to catch it.
