"Bullard, Claude L (Len)" scripsit:
> It is often bad to be the first penguin. It assumes all
> the risks for the same number of fish. It is safer
> to be the last penguin, but the risk is that all of the fish
> will be eaten. Better to be the third penguin. Little
> risk and no guilt for pushing the first penguin in. The
> second penguin can't eat all the fish that fast.
Be not the first by whom the new is tried
Nor yet the last to lay the old aside.
--Alexander Pope, _Essay on Man_
