"Put your hand on a hot stove for two seconds and it seems like two
hours. Sit with a beautiful girl for two hours and it seems like two
minutes. That's relativity." - Albert Einstein

"When a girl says she needs two minutes to get ready, that's the same
thing as when a guy says there's two minutes left in the football
game. That's relativity." - Johnny Damon
