    Every one a winner - thanks Richard I too have not seen such a collection all together.
    "The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant: It's just that they know so much that isn't so."
    Just as appropriate now as ever

    Not a ''Reaganism but something I always find amusing -

    Definition of an ''expert''?

    Someone who learns more and more, about less and less - until he knows everything about nothing.


    I remember too this one, from New Scientist many moons ago -

    What is the difference between Research and Development??

    Development is taking an existing idea and knocking it into shape thru experiment and improvements. Research - is more like trying to make 9 ladies pregnant to get a baby in a month's time!

    My favorite RR quotation:

    How can you tell when a Pole is at a Cock fight?
    -When he enters a duck.
    How can you tell when an Italian is at a Cock fight?
    -When he bets on the duck.
    How can you tell when the mafia is at a Cock fight?
    -When the duck wins.

    LOL!

    I always heard EXPERT defined this way.

    From latin root words ex and spert.
    ex=has been
    spert= a drip under pressure.

    Ok that one works so much better verbally...
