    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I like Ken Jennings. Although likes to tell you he is a genius, which is annoying, since he really is, it isn't as annoying.
    A common mistake people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools. -Douglas Adams

    I saw a review of this a few days ago; seems one guy found a big error, he said, on page 3, where Jennings said some town was split between AL and LA which don't even abut, and it was AL and Tenn I think. But otherwise it sounded like a fun read.
