We never really grow up; we only learn how to act in public. I really like that one the best! Best quotes I've read in some time! Thanks, Marianne!  :D :D:)

“Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana.”

Zeno always had a difficult time with motion. :D


An infinite number of mathematicians walk into a bar. 
The first asks the bartender for a beer. 
The second asks for half a beer. The third one says he wants a fourth of a beer. 
The bartender interrupts, puts two beers on the bar and says:
 “You guys need to learn your limits.”

Lol, T(h)ink, two good ones!

And yes, "... fruit flies (or can/will/... fly) like a banana, or fruit flies (can/will/...) like a banana."

:D:D:D

I think I like best the one about the early bird and the second mouse, Marianne! I seem to be less-than-early these days...

Marianne Virginia Dec 15, 2017

Lol, Virginia - yes, for quite a few, the daylight saving times, persisting stress, too long work days, the "jet-lag syndrome", extra work and/or too many night shifts, etc., can have a very negative impact on the circadian rhythm.
