No. Have you?

I find it works well enough to get me from one planet to another.

 

Those last two being the best two SF films ever made...

here is another more than one line, not a classic but good just the same


 


You take the blue pill -- the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill -- you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes."

Let's just say we'd  like to avoid any Imperial entanglements... [but for the Derby & District AS this has not always been possible as witnessed here...]
