Half as Long

Winston Churhill was being interviewed by the press at the beginning of WW2.

"Mr. Minister, can you tell us when you think we may lick these boys?"

For the first time, Churchill looked puzzled. To that point, The Washington Post reported, he had been "flinging back answers that almost caught the questions in mid-air." But he did not understand what 'lick' meant. Early went over and translated it for him.

"If we manage it well," Churchill answered with a smile, "it will only take half as long as if we manage it badly."
I'd say the same rule applies to this war.

Shamlessly stolen from Winds of Change.

Just surfing around late night and came upon your blog...I liked it.
My site about Voip Training is hard to have a blog for VOIP stuff and boring too
