"Look at me - I design coastlines ... I got an award for Norway ... I've been doing fjords all my life ... for a fleeting moment they become fashionable and I get a major award."Before I eat my lunch, I thought I'd see if I could find a YouTube video.

-- Slartibartfast (planet designer)
The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy / Douglas Adams
