Hey, folks, JOE55's latest avatar (which is quite cool, by the way) keeps reminding me of an old story...

One night, a man had a dream.

Actually, he had FIVE dreams, but each time it was the same dream.

Each time he dreamt of a great big number "5".

In the morning, for some reason, his alarm clock went off at five AM.

This was odd because it was set for 6.

All morning at work the dreams and his alarm clock were preying on his mind.

He knew it had to be a sign.

So at lunchtime, he left work and drove to the track.

Only to discover that he was just in time to place a bet for the FIFTH race of the day.

Now he knew -- beyond any doubt -- that this was indeed a sign, and a big one.

He quickly made his way to the #5 ticket window, where he placed a $500 bet on the #5 horse.

And the odds?

55 to 1.

And sure enough...

Sure enough...

The horse came in fifth.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)
