Went to the local mop fair yesterday evening with my two girls.

We had fun, but it struck me.

The world is divided into two sorts of people, those that ride on the Bumper cars and those that ride on the Dodg'ems.

That is all.

There are 10 types of people in this world: those who understand binary, and those who don't.

There are two types of people in this world. Those that think that joke is clever, and those who have been subjected to it before.

How come the forums don't filter cat butts? 4 cat butts is 3 cat butts too many. You've crossed a line.

Three types, actually: Those that ride bumper cars, those that ride dodge'ems, and the VAST majority of humanity, that call them something else entirely.

i like the ferris wheel. Take a camera with a 10mm lens and you get some very cool shots.

MOPS fairs look interresting. I never knew they existed until this thread.
