Things that Make you Go Hmmm

“The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get the old ones out.” –Dee Hock, creator and first CEO of Visa

Hey, if we can all wrap our minds around this, what a better place our world would be.

N’est pas?

There will always be something, and a relevant saying to go with it.

Whenever I needed to empty my mind to put something in my head for only as long as an exam took, Rocky & Bullwinkle always worked.

Your mind is a tin can. Don't overfill it. Now enjoy the antics of Boris & Natasha.

Your diversion tactic worked. You see, I had nothing to read, came here, and was satisfied. Thank you.

Now regarding this VISA dude's spin on thoughts - I know eXactly how to get old thoughts out ... it's simple. Go through menopause or just be over 50. The mind empties out amazingly fast.
