Terry Pratchett got it right when he said in Going Postal that the greatest freedom of all is the freedom to take the consequences, which is the freedom upon which all others are based.


Have you quoted that before? Sounds familiar. And true, of course.

I just finished The Color of Magic today during downtime at work. It was so good. It made me laugh more than Hitchhiker's Guide.



Yeah, sorry for the thread hijack, dktekno.

Yes, I have quoted it about a dozen times before, gwenevyn. And believe it or not, Colour of Magic is actually one of the worst of the Discworld series. It sets things up, but is lesser than most later Discworld novels. If you like, I'll PM recommendations of my favourite Discworld novels.

It's in danish, so you won't get anything from it.

But anyway:

Unfortunately, the translation tools give gibberish more often than not.
