Paul's Note - June 14, 2019

Bypasses are devices that allow some people to dash from point A to point B very fast while other people dash from point B to point A very fast.

They often wish that people would just once and for all work out where the hell they wanted to be. – Douglas Adams, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
