  1. love terry pratchett and his books xxjen

  2. It’s difficult to read a page of any of his books without finding a good quote, the perfect phrase to use in any situation, or just something so wonderful you want to underline it and read it again – every day.

  3. “The intelligence of the creature known as a crowd, is the square root of the number of people in it”
    Sounds good, but it’s probably not what he meant. A better description would be:
    Intelligence = 270 divided by e to the x; where x is the number of people.
