Quotes: Writers Cannot Do Math
"I suck at math."

Number 2: Why not use your knowledge of the future to play the stock market? We could make trillions!
Dr. Evil: Why make trillions when we could make... billions?
Scott Evil: A trillion is more than a billion, numbnuts.
Austin Powers: Goldmember

"Every year, worldwide, some 3,000 people are killed by falling coconuts, now if you times that figure by 10, that's 30,000 people every year, which works out at nearly half a million people, every 12 months. Spread that out over a year, that's 4.2 billion people killed by coconuts every month. A frightening statistic."
Angus Deaton, Would I Lie to You?

"Oh dear, maths."
