Quote of the Day

Protractor, Ruler & String
Cord and Erasmus, siblings, exchange a few words:
[Cord:] "Do you need transportation? Tools? Stuff?"
    "Our opponent is an alien spaceship packed with atomic bombs," I said. "We have a protractor."
    "Okay, I'll go home and see if I can scrounge up a ruler and a piece of string." - Anathem by Neal Stephenson, p. 334.
I almost howled, but everyone else here is asleep and they probably wouldn't have appreciated hearing from me at this hour.
