Saturday we got joking at the LHS about how trains are better than women (or men). Here are some of the ones of mine I could remember: Trains don't care if you turn them on, give them a quick run, then go to sleep. Trains don't nag you to re-arrange the room. Trains don't care if you come home with a new engine. Trains don't have a fit if you play with other trains. Trains don't have a fit if you spend $300 for a new engine. Trains don't mind if you share them with friends. Trains don't care if you never take them anywhere. Trains don't yell at you if you come home late and did not call first. Trains don't worry if all you do is run them in circles. Trains never ask, "Does this make my caboose look big?" Trains never splend $1000 on the Home Shopping Network for clothes. --- Any additions?
