"One day I’m sure everyone will routinely collect all sorts of data about themselves. But because I’ve been interested in data for a very long time, I started doing this long ago.

How I Helped Destroy Star Wars Galaxies » Medium Difficulty
I couldn’t even bring myself to fight back. I just stood there. I was one of the few true Dark Jedi Masters, and I let him kill me. That very act illustrated perfectly what SOE did wrong.

Mike Mignola, de mens van Hellboy, maakte in 2002 een komische comic, The Amazing Screw-on Head.
– Pardon me if I say “Poppycock”…
– Then say it!
Hellboy heb ik nooit gekocht (shame on me, ik weet het, ik weet het). Maar Screw-On, die had ik wel. Zeer goed, zeer grappig, maar ik had altijd gedacht dat het daar wel zou bij blijven: één one off.
