“He thinks he’s totally alone and that we all gave up on him. What kind of effect does that have on a man’s psychology?”

He turned back to Venkat. “I wonder what he’s thinking about right now?”



How come Aquaman can control whales? They’re mammals! Makes no sense.” (page 63-64).


“Yes, of course duct tape works in a near-vacuum. Duct tape works anywhere. Duct tape is magic and should be worshiped.” (page 220).

I get why people enjoy this book so much. It’s quite hilarious and is Mars, what’s not to love!  Mark is one interesting dude. And definitely good to know duct tape will never ever fail us.
