Oh, sometimes you just find something on the ol' inter-web that is just too fun for your own good.

Everybody remembers those cheesy motivational posters from the late 90s? "TEAMWORK" and there's a photo of a rowing crew and some pithy saying like, "The whole is greater than the sum of the parts." (or is is the sum of the squares of the sides of a right triangle? I can never remember...)

I had a faux one of these posters in my locker in dental school. It had a lovely shot of the Leaning Tower of Pisa:

Underneath it read: MEDIOCRITY - It takes a lot less work, and no one really notices the difference 'til it's too late.

Now, as anyone who knows me will tell you, I really try to be anti-mediocre...however, with all the assignments of dental school, my perfectionistic tendencies would have killed me in under two quarters. The poster reminded me to accept a little imperfection here and there, or I'd never finish anything.

Anyway, this site:
allows you to make your own. Too much fun!
