    "Kilpatrick was murdered in a theater; the English police never apprehended the assassin. Historians claim that this does not tarnish the good name of the police, since it is possible that the police themselves had Kilpatrick murdered."

    — Borges, "The Theme of the Traitor and the Hero," Eng. trans. Andrew Hurley

    Gib: "Same thing happened to me with wife number two, 'member? I have no idea nothing's going on, right? I come home one day and the house is empty, and I mean completely empty.

    "Varenicline ["Chantix"] attenuated alcohol-related increases in subjective intoxication and alcohol-related decreases in executive cognitive function. At baseline, varenicline reduced alcohol craving and diastolic blood pressure, and increased associative learning, working memory, and perceptual motor function."

    “How could you want to marry a girl you’ve had sex with? My mother once told me, ‘Why eat garbage on your wedding night when you can eat steak?’"

    -- Dan Akryod, quote from somewhere (in a movie/TV, pretty siure!)
