Quote of the day–Piet Hein

There’s a useful rule of thumb:
That talents make a difference,
And follies make a sum.

Piet Hein
[Does this remind you of banking regulation committees?–Joe]

  2. How do you determine the collective IQ of a committee?

    Take the lowest IQ of the committee members, and divide by the number of people in the committee.
