What I learned from "The Cat Who Walks Through Walls":

1) If a government official refuses to speak with you, just threaten to walk out and he'll change his mind immediately.

2) A fez, not unlike Clark Kent's glasses, makes an impenetrable disguise.

3) Sexism will make a big comeback in the future. Incest, too.

4) Alternate universes and time travel can be used to fill any plot hole.

5) Cutting in line is a death-penalty offense, but murder... meh.

6) Just like in "Field of Dreams," Iowa is teh awesome.

7) What happens on Tertius, stays on Tertius.

8) Don't rent a spaceship from Budget.

9) The most important status symbol of all future societies will be the bathroom. And waffles.

10) Heinlein was a major perv.

Buck West Aw, jeez, another "sexism is wherever I say it is" gender warrior. If you're not confident in your own skills and abilities, then don't read.
