"Stop being a stick-in-the-mud. Everybody's having a great time. No more multi-tasking, no more fax-modems, e-mail, voice-mail, video-conferencing, tele-conferencing, pointing, clicking, and all that other stuff I never did anyway." -Wally

"I know you've grown accustomed to the new ways, the authenticity and the relationship with nature, but it's a lie. We live a in a cold mechanistic technocracy. We have to make that work." -Dilbert
