kids i have come across, have more innovative and out of box thinking ideas than any managers i have met... thats obviously because managers have limited resources but kids have none... that leaves kids to be really innovative...

"Indians buying more cars, pushing up gas prices" - Obama, Nobel laureate.

What a finding? You should award your FBI a big appraisal this year, for this finding. That will motivate them in finding oil below ground instead of finding facts.
