 :D  I love saying, "you know what they say, Rome was built in a day"  it always stirs everyone up!
There was this one guy I worked with, he was freaking out about something along the lines where it'd fit in, and I walked past and dropped in said line, and he freaked out and screamed at the middle of his lungs (the top melted off from overheating)  "ROME WAS NOT BUILT IN A DAY! UGH!" and then he stormed off in a tantrum I couldn't stop laughing.
Obviously Rome wasn't built in a day...I got it from Tommy Chong, in an episode of That 70's Show, he said, "you know what they say man, rome was built in a day, man" and i've been quoting that ever since....
Boy, back in my day..

The only reason some people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory.

When you are doing something with a certain, not too common tool, or something that you do not see very often, and someone says "What is that?" Some people will get smart and say, "that is an eyecatcherformedelers" ;D
