"How many Kerbals make an adequate crush space for this lander?" - martincitopants

Best quote, period.

Another one: "a game where ethics, morality, and the safety of your subjects take a back seat to science, exploration, and getting that BREAD."

I was looking into Space Shuttle hot aborts (pad aborts), and came across this gem:

Quote

From the flight engineer’s seat, Steve Hawley injected a spark of humor into the proceedings. “Gee,” he said, in his thick Kansan drawl, “I thought we’d be a lot higher at MECO!”

From this article: http://www.spacesafetymagazine.com/spaceflight/launch/shuttle-launch-pad-aborts/#:~:text=Close-up view of Discovery's,(Credits%3A NASA).

I've got a good mustache related follow-up for this... hehehe

Book: "Yes, I'd forgotten you're moonlighting as a criminal mastermind now. Got your next heist planned?"
Simon:  "No. But I'm thinking about growing a big black mustache. I'm a traditionalist."

"There's a tribe living down by a river, and in the river there are crocodiles. The tribe has one particular piece of wisdom passed down through the generations. It goes like this: if you happen to meet a crocodile, don't stick your head in its mouth. Every now and then, and who knows the reason, people ignore this advice, which is sad, because they die. But very stupid because they were warned. They had a choice. The moral of this story is this: You can't afford to be stupid. There are crocodiles."

--Lynda Day; Press Gang. (A Piece of Life Wisdom I've never forgotten.)

Id like to add on to my prior entry. A few more quotes from Star Trek the Next Generation, Season 4 Episode 21 The Drumhead

"We think we've come so far. Torture of heretics, burning of witches, it's all ancient history. And then, before you can blink an eye, suddenly, it threatens to start all over again." 

<see my prior entry for the villains portion>

"Maybe. But she or someone like her will always be with us, waiting for the right climate in which to flourish – spreading fear in the name of righteousness. Vigilance, Mr. Worf. That is the price we have to continually pay."

- Picard and Worf, discussing both the investigations and the misguidedness of Admiral Satie

<my prior entry, the portion about villains is from the middle of this exchange, snipped out because redundancy lol>
