A Little Humor For Your Breaks Whilst Studying For Finals

So I came across this webpage with a lot of random Douglas Adams quotes. These are my favorites:

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

"The mere thought hadn't even begun to speculate about the merest possibility of crossing my mind."

"The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don't."

"There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.There is another theory which states that this has already happened."

"In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move."

Props for confusing grammar: "That young girl is one of the least benightedly unintelligent organic life forms it has been my profound lack of pleasure not to be able to avoid meeting."

Props for understatement: "Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the drug store, but that's just peanuts to space."

And finally, props for my favorite: "Arthur hoped and prayed that there wasn't an afterlife. Then he realised there was a contradiction there and merely hoped that there wasn't an afterlife."

(That last one is for Andrew, who doesn't even read this blog, but who said: "They say brevity is the soul of wit, but it isn't. Subtlety is the soul of wit." What a smart guy.)
