I was just watching 2001: A Space Odyssey for the first time and thought of something...

"I touched the black monolith and all I got was the idea for this lousy t-shirt."

Here's something that made me chuckle, related to computer programming:

"To paraphrase P. J. O'Rourke, making fun of VB is like hunting dairy cows with a rifle and high-powered scope."

"Hello IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again? ... OK, well, the button on the side. Is it glowing?... Yeah, you need to turn it on. Err, the button turns it on. Yeah, you do know how a button works, don't you? No, not on clothes." - Roy (The IT Crowd)

Heard this on an episode of a TV show I like, and thought it was appropriate for the site:

"When the game is over, the king and the pawn go into the same box."

I came across this interesting one on StackOverflow:

"Once you think you completely understand something (like the notion of "polygon"), a generalization will turn up that shows you that you're just getting started. This principle applies even when you've already taken this principle into account, which is to say: You're never done."
