    I came across a quote today that most surely inspire anyone struggling with, for example, the nitrogen cycle.
    According to Lukas Podolski, currently playing with the German side at the World Cup, "Football is like chess, but without the dice".
    Surely anyone's troubles fade in the face of such a pronouncement.----rick

    A bit of both, I would hope, sort of like if Helen Heller had tripped over a fallen tree in a forest far from human hearing, would she have made a sound? Nasty, that-----------rick
