    Knew 'em all without the multiple choices, and number 11 was Jerry Rubin, not Bob Dylan.

    I was wondering if anybody else would pick that up. I couldn't remember Rubin, but I knew Dylan wasn't right.

    Too bad I can't remember what I did two days ago.

    Oh, and Wonder Bread originally built strong bodies 8 ways until they added more crap to it.

    Actually, it was neither Dylan, nor Rubin. The original quote was from 1965, from Jack Weinstein a free speech activist out of UC Berkeley in a news interview.

    "We have a saying in the movement that we don’t trust anybody over 30."

    Funny thing is, he never believed the statement to be accurate, it was to stir the pot so to speak.

    Many into "the movement" regurgitated it in various forms.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    Also, FWIW, "We have met the enemy and he is us." was not from the comic strip, but was first stated on Pogo poster for Earth Day in 1970. It was restated in the comic strip a bit later. (answer remains correct, it was from Pogo.)

    Yes, I Googled it to see if I was right and found that reference, but as a public figure, Jerry Rubin made it popular.
