    A boy comes home from school one day with a question on his mind, and
    goes to his father for an answer. "Father," he asks, "what is the
    difference between potential and reality?" His father is thoughtful for a
    moment, and then replies, "Well, I'll tell you what, son. Go and ask
    your mother if she'd sleep with the mailman for a million dollars."
    The boy is confused, but follows his father instructions, and proceeds
    into the kitchen. When he returns, he tells father, "She said she would,
    dad..." His father again looks thoughtful, and so the boy asks,
    "Now will you teach me the difference between potential and reality?"
    The father says, "I will, son, but first, go ask your sister if she'd sleep
    with the mailman for a million dollars." The boy is even more puzzled,
    but does as his father says. After he return from his sister's room, he says,
    "Yes, dad, she said she would sleep with the mailman for a million
    dollars. Now will you teach me the difference between potential and
    reality?" The father says, "One more thing. Go ask your brother if he'd
    sleep with the mailman for a million dollars."
    Now the boy is very confused, but convinced as he is of his father's
    wisdom, he goes to ask his brother. When he returns, he proclaims to his
    father, "Yes, dad, my brother would sleep with the mailman for a million
    dollars. Now will you teach me the difference between potential and
    reality?"
    The father looks up at his son, and says, "Alright son, think about this:
    Right now this household has the potential to make three million dollars.
    But the reality is, we're just living with two sluts and a homo."

    Lol! Then I think you just wandered into the wrong thread. You'll get no reality in here! Just parodies of reality.
