I know we already had a marketplace theme a while ago. This is a bit different.

Many, many years ago I was up late watching a stand-up comedian. I wish I remember who it was. The skit had a bit about political borders. It was incredibly funny for me. The comedian was saying that there would most likely be no war or border crossings if all countries used those grocery separators for their physical borders.

People get ridiculous in grocery stores over their goods. Once that little border thing delineates their soon-to-be-purchased items, beware! If you cross for any reason you get scary "out of my space" looks. Watch out if you have a pile of goods that just threatens to topple onto the other side of one of those gray bars. The possessiveness of temporary space astounds me.

I thought the comedian was incredibly insightful. I still laugh at the thought of a bunch of countries surrounded by gray bars. It could happen, just check out your local supermarket.
