He attacked everything in life with a mix of extraordinary genius and naive incompetence, and it was often difficult to tell which was which.

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 or repair.

Douglas Adams, Mostly Harmless

Even he, to whom most things that most people would think were pretty smart were pretty dumb, thought it was pretty smart.

I should print out the second quote in large letters and put it as a banner over my tool and fix-it shelf.

The first quote very much reminds me of a X cousin X removed, adopted at that, who lived in a world of its own.

He would bring me wildflowers and melt my Yankee heart----he's a Yankee, also----and that's how he got away with so much for 18 years.

Gimmie a Southern boy this time, God---with a bit of a drawl----
NO!!!!! I take that back----
I'd rather bushwhack and drink coffee whenever I want!!! :o)

Oh, the second one rings my bell. Just had one of the toilets over flowing. No warning, no flashing buttons, nothing to signal that there was a potential problem, it just overflowed.
