Well, I'm as utterly devastated about the death of Pratchett as anyone who was a fan of his work. The world is a little less magical without him and other assorted things others have already said. Of course, I didn't know the guy but boy do I know what he's written.
So I propose a game to remember him, promulgate his wisdom and remind or show everyone just how goddamn quotable and insightful he was. Post a link to a thread or post from a thread and then a quote which answers said thread or post in a serious, hilarious or otherwise nonsensical way. Obviously we'll initially be applying this in a retrospective fashion but maybe with time it'll begin to be prospective.
I'll get us started.
