    "Not often a dude ruins your face, skull-stomps your sanity, grabs your future baby mama, and personally sees to four of your five shittiest moments. Let's just say... it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas." - Deadpool

    "If government leaders hesitated to embark on the adventure of military conflict, they were not deterred by fear of being stamped as criminals. Rather, after the experiences of the Franco-Prussian War and the Russo-Japanese War they saw lurking behind each war the danger of revolution." — Felix Gilbert, The End of the European Era The series, as a non-historian, I find to be a useful reference, although the prose is execrable and mannered, at least in Gilbert's volume cit supr. Nonetheless, it's appropriate to remember some facts today.

    "In the sequel, we're gonna have Cable. Amazing character. Bionic arm, time travel. We have no idea who we're gonna cast yet but it could be anybody. We just need a big guy with a flat top. Could be Mel Gibson, Dolph Lundgren, Keira Knightley - she's got range, who knows? Anyway, big secret, ssshhhh. Oh, and don't leave your garbage all lying around. It's a total dick move. Go. Chicka-chickahhhh." - Deadpool

    "To address information-intensive tasks such as the dynamic re-planning of a military mission or the on-going assessment of threats to the operations of a large corporation we need to be able to (1) make sense of incoming data, whether in the form of sensor feeds, database records, or natural language texts; (2) reconcile these data with stored knowledge; and (3) respond accordingly." — Barry Smith, Erik Thomsen, "Ontology-based fusion of sensor data and natural language," in Applied Ontology 13 (4), 2018, p. 296.

    "Ideally, intel reports would be interpreted and reasoned over in near real time, with inference results implying a threat to a planned mission being sent to the appropriate
    mission planners for immediate inclusion in updated mission plans. Currently, however, there are simply too many generated reports to allow rapid processing by human analysts." —Smith, Thomsen, op. cit., p. 298

    You can say that again.

    "Well, mornin', Sam, like a bad-luck planet in today's horoscope, here's the old hippie-hating mad dog himself in the flesh: Det. Lt. Christian F. "Bigfoot" Bjornsen. SAG member, John Wayne walk, flat-top of Flintstone proportions and that evil little shit-twinkle in his eye that says 'civil rights violations.'" - Inherent Vice

    "Alright, alright, which one of you fucking pricks stole all the candy canes? Ah. nice. Nice kids. Where'd you get them from, a fucking jail? Fucking reform school brats: get the fuck out of here." —Joe Pesci

    That fucking white motherfucker with his fat fucking self Santy Claus. Fuck you, and fuck the fucking Christmas, which it even isn't, you bunch of fucking people who don't know it isn't the fucking season yet. Shit motherfuckers.

    Oh. That was two quotes, I guess. Second, unattributed.

    Doc Sportello: "Is that a swastika on that man's face?"
    Dr. Threeply: "No, it isn't. That's an ancient Hindu symbol meaning 'all is well.' It brings good fortune, luck and well-being."
