my father.. Used to tell me, the germans once made a piece of wire so thin it could almost not be seen by the naked eye.. They packaged it and sent it to the swiss with a card that read 'german engineering at its finest..'
the swiss.. Not to be out done, drilled a hole through it, making it hollow.. Then sent it back with a card that said 'swiss engineering at its finest..'
Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
- Benjamin Franklin
I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery
