RE: [DMCForum] New poll for DMCForum



It's been translated several ways, but the most direct translation is
"Give me somewhere to stand, and I will move the Earth." (Pappus,
Synagoge, ed. f. Hultsch, Berlin, 1876-8, VIII, 10, xi) I was using
the more listener-friendly version as spoken by John F. Kennedy.
However it's done, though, it's a cool way of saying "One person can
make a difference" without discussing hobbits. ;P

      OK you come down here and try find any Guinness in any
restaurant or bar.
      If it isn't some light horse piss in a bottle or corona they
don't carry it.

      Is that right?  I thought it was " Show me a place to stand
give me large
      enough lever, and I shall move the world."
