When people or the world in general are making you scratch your head in bewilderment remember what my Grandfather told me..

"The only difference between Genius and Stupidity is, that Genius has its limits."

And believe me when I tell you that I have been proof of that statement on several occasions. It's nice to know I have no limits...

You mean 'genius knows its limitations'. Big difference.

it's its, not it's: it's is a contraction of it is, while its implies possession.

Your right about the contraction, I said "it's" instead of its, thank you for the correction. I fixed my original post.
