J. C. Watts
Garbage can provide important details for hackers: names, telephone numbers, a company's internal jargon.
You look at what One Direction has done and just say, 'That is just lucky;' it is not.

Since those who believe they need a hero/celebrity outnumber the actual heroes/celebrities, people feel safe and comfortably justified in numbers, committing egregious crimes in the name of the greater social ego. Ironically diminishing their own true hero-celebrity nature in the process.

Lyndon B. Johnson

Once I'd reached the point where I could squirrel away more than 30 digits a minute in memory palaces, I still only sporadically used the techniques to memorize the phone numbers of people I actually wanted to call. I found it was just too simple to punch them into my cell phone.
Two records put me over the top with hip-hop. One of them was 'Planet Rock,' and the other had no lyrics - it was called 'Numbers,' from a group called Kraftwerk.

What matters to me is that I do what I think is right and I see, I'm a numbers guy, that's my attitude.
