Einstein quote...

Quote
You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat.
You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles.
Radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here; they receive them there.
The only difference is that there is no cat.
ALBERT EINSTEIN (1879-1955)

Well, that pretty well exhausts any more cat/radio puns!!
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
