@Adam: My Hawaiian shirts aren't "loud" -- they are just happy and colorful and exuberant and they whisper seductively in your ear things like "I bet you wish you were man enough to wear a little beauty like me!"

May I be so bold as to suggest GoodHawaiianShirts.com -- the quality is great -- that's where I'm currently getting all of my shirts.

Surely that is an oxymoron

What are you talking about? I can't even spell oxymoron :-)

As a total aside -- do you remember that Peter O'Toole film in which the doctor says something like: "I'm afraid to say that your son is a paranoid schizophrenic." And the other person replies: "He's can't be – we've always been Church of England!"

I wish I could remember the name of the film...

That's the one -- the page you link to gives the full (accurate) quote:

Dr. Herder: His lordship is a paranoid schizophrenic.

Sir Charles: Paranoid schizophrenic? But he's a Gurney!

Dr. Herder: Then he's a paranoid schizophrenic Gurney who believes he's God.

Sir Charles: But we've always been Church of England!

That film was jam-packed with some great lines. One of my favorites is:

Sir Charles: Come, doctor, you said he needed a harsh dose of reality. Well, you can't get a harder dose of the stuff than marriage.

 
LOL

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
