(originally attributed to Alice "She could believe 6 impossible things before breakfast.") has come to exert over people. I didn't begin to get that until I ran across it in The Restaurant at the End of the Universe which is part of the Douglas Adams cycle The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
