If you're not familiar with the work of Steven Wright, he's the famous erudite scientist who once said:"I woke up one morning and all of my stuff had been stolen and replaced by exact duplicates."His mind sees things differently than most of ours do, to our amazement, and amusement.Here are some of his gems:1 - I'd kill for a Nobel Peace Prize.2 - Borrow money from pessimists -- they don't expect it back.3 - Half the people you know are below average.4 - 99% of lawyers give the rest a bad name.5 - 82.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot.6 - A conscience is what hurts when all your other parts feel so good.7 - A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.8 - If you want the rainbow, you got to put up with the rain.9 - All those who believe in psycho kinesis, raise my hand.10 - The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.11 - I almost had a psychic girlfriend... but she left me before we met.12 - OK, so what's the speed of dark?13 - How do you tell when you're out of invisible ink?14 - If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.15 - Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.16 - When everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.17 - Ambition is a poor excuse for not having enough sense to be lazy.18 - Hard work pays off in the future, laziness pays off now.19 - I intend to live forever... So far, so good.20 - If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends?21 - Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.22 - What happens if you get scared half to death twice?23 - My mechanic told me, "I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder."24 - Why do psychics have to ask you for your name?25 - If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.26 - A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.27 - Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.28 - The hardness of the butter is proportional to the softness of the bread.29 - To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research.30 - The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.31 - The sooner you fall behind, the more time you'll have to catch up.32 - The colder the x-ray table, the more of your body is required to be on it.33 - Everyone has a photographic memory; some just don't have film.34 - If your car could travel at the speed of light, would your headlights work?

Hard work pays off in the future. Laziness pays off right now.

..that's one of his I like.
Love no. 33!
Steven's got some pretty crazy ideas, but I've never known him to be Rong.

>If you're not familiar with the work of Steven Wright....

His name seems to be spelt Stephen and Steven on the internet (as usual no accuracy on the internet).

I think Stephen is right.

One of my favorites is:

I once put instant coffee in a microwave and went back in time.
Another was:

I went to a show of children's paintings at an art gallery.

All the pictures were stuck in fridge doors.
My favourites of his are;

'I bought some batteries but they werent included. So I had to buy them again.'

'I bought some instant water but didnt know what to add'
I met a girl who told me she was a nymphomaniac but she was only turned on by jewish cowboys. I said 'Hi - I'm Buckie Goldstein'.
I just got a dog. I named him 'Stay'.
Some great ones. A few more.

A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me, I'm afraid of widths.

Curiosity killed the cat, but for a while I was a suspect.

I have an existential map. It has 'You are here' written all over it.
Curiousity killed the cat, what was it curious about?
Just for the record:

'Stephen' is wrong for the comedian. There is no 'p' in Steven Wright . . . or is there?
