@susan: Your friend did the prototype version of running with the bulls.

Ooooh -- that's a nice play on the fact that we just launched a new Prototyping Designline -- well done! (You are worth every penny I'm not paying you :-)

I only have to outrun you!

This sort of reminds me of the joke about two guys in Africa who hear the roar of a nearby lion. One says "Do you think you can run faster than a lion" and the second replies "I only have to run faster than you" (the idea being that the lion gets the one at the back, of course).

Sad to relate, I hear that there were a lot of injuries at the running of the bulls this year -- but then I tell myself that it's not as if the people are forced to do it -- they made a (stupid) choice and cannot be too surprised at the outcome.

One the other hand, I have to admit that I would love to fly out there and enjoy the festival ... and I'm sure that if I were there I would watch the running of the bulls ... but only from a safe vantage point :-)
