Regarding the Dave Barry quote:

“Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.”

Lou Quillio wrote
Not alone. Expressly not alone. Whatever magic caused the flood caused the ark. They are of a piece.

Oh, puhleeze. Not only has this NOTHING to do with technical writing, but it's absurd to think the designers and builders of the Titanic were any less inspired than the designer and builder of the ark, if such a thing (or person!) ever existed in the first place.

Can we wander somewhere closer to the topic of the list? I'm sure there's an opiateofthemasses-l or some other place that's more appropriate for this discussion...
