As jy hul kan sien groei, is dit bamboes, nie mielies nie. Algemene boere-fout. :pot:

Reminds me of a nice story I heard once. This guy is hiking around South America when he comes to this small village. A guy in his forties or so is sitting at the river fishing...

- Morning, catching anything ?
- Si Senor... plenty fish.
- So what does one do here all day ?
- I sit and fish Senor
- What do you do with with the fish ?
- I feed my family. I have two sons and a daughter
- Why don't you catch more and sell it ?
- Si, Senor and then ?
- Well you can sell what you don't need and buy your family nice things
- Si Senor, and then
- You can catch more and export it and make more money
- Si Senor and then
- You can teach your sons to fish, open a factory, export more and you'll be a millionaire in no time
- Si Senor, and then
- You can go on early retirement, let your sons manage the business and then you can sit here next to the river all day long and fish.
...dis nooit te laat om n happy childhood te he nie !
