Today's Laugh

Kari says these are quotes from Douglas Adams:

The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at and repair.

I'm spending a year dead for tax reasons.

Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?

It is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it... anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

The knack of flying is learning to throw yourself at the ground and miss.


  1. I'm pretty sure that every one of those is from the Hitchhiker's trilogy (5 books long)!

    Yay for Douglas Adams!

  2. I didn't think you'd like the one about fairies.

    The one about being president... you know that's why Ed got chosen by the guys to be district president! He protested against it enough that the pastors knew he was definitely the right man for the job.

  3. They're all from the Guide, except for the fairie one, as far as I know. That sounds like he might be talking about atheism.

  4. (Though I believe most of them are paraphrased.)
