" While Kevin Costner got the tip from a magical cornfield in the 1989 baseball film "Field of Dreams," U.S. Navy Commander John Collins magically dreamt it up in 1978 to settle an argument. The debate was something like, "Who's more physically fit - swimmers, runners or bicyclists?"

Some were even written for us by others (wives, husbands, parents, children, etc.) I have one that I made about 10 years ago. For a while, I carried it in my wallet. Now, it's etched in my memory.
