"Linus, my serious side, is the house intellectual, bright, well-informed which, I suppose may contribute to his feelings of insecurity"

" The old believe everything, the middle-aged suspect everything, the young know everything."
                                                                                                - Oscar Wilde

Dorothy Parker on Oscar Wilde:
"If, with the literate, I am
Impelled to try an epigram,
I never seek to take the credit;
We all assume that Oscar said it."

Quote from: Jonas Jonasson, The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden
The statistical probability that an illiterate in 1970s Soweto will grow up and one day find herself confined in a potato truck with the Swedish king and prime minister is 1 in 45 766 212 810.

There were "45 766 212 810" illiterate people born in Soweto in the 1970's? (Yes I'm probably Wink missing something here)

Showing that at any time, the scientific consensus may be totally wrong:--

Quote from: Richard A. Proctor--Pleasant Ways in Science
We examine Mercury and Venus very nearly under the conditions here imagined;
for we can obtain only spectroscopic evidence respecting the existence of
water on either planet. In the case of Mars we have telescopic evidence,
and no one now doubts that the greenish parts of the planet are seas
and oceans.

Quote from: The Island, 2005
Lincoln Six Echo: Hey, what’s with Dr Merrick?
Mac: You mean, why does he act like he’s got a filing cabinet shoved up his ass?
Lincoln Six Echo: [Spluttering laugh] Yeah.
Mac: It’s called a “God complex.” All doctors are like that. They think they know everything.
Lincoln Six Echo: What’s God?
Mac: Well, you know when you want something really bad and you close your eyes and you wish for it? God’s the guy that ignores you.
Lincoln Six Echo: Oh, right.
