    For some reason your posts remind me of a sign I used to see outside an auto-wrecker's yard some many years ago:

    "Please drive carefully, we don't need any more stock".

    haha! I love boats, I'm proper into boats. I have wasted so much money on boats and boating it is ridiculous.


    There is a sign at the end of someone's garden in Norfolk that is only passable by boat and it says "please don't throw stones at this sign"....

    Without wanting to be a party pooper, but there is no evidence of that ever being said by Einstein, and it doesnt sound like anything he'd ever say at all. If anything, he strongly didnt feel 'everyone is a genius in their own way', and he wasn't shy with expressing his disappointment with others' intellect.

    I know Einstein didn't say that. Notice it says Attributed to Albert Einstein. I don't know who actually said it. But when I first saw the quote, the name under the quote was Albert Einstein. I thought, "No way. I gotta research this. And it seems I was correct. No evidence he ever said it. But it is Attributed to him.

    A great many quotes "by Einstein" are made up. Including the insanity one, he never said that either.
