From net.unix-wizards:

I am not now, nor have I ever been, a member of the demigodic party.

From Odd Comments and Strange Doings in Unix:

"values of β will give rise to dom!"

 /*  * If the new process paused because it was  * swapped out, set the stack level to the last call  * to savu(u_ssav).  This means that the return  * which is executed immediately after the call to aretu  * actually returns from the last routine which did  * the savu.  *  * You are not expected to understand this.  */

"A substory: at some point several were sitting around working away. Bob Morris asked, almost conversationally, 'what are the arguments to ld?' Someone told him. We continued typing for the next minute, as a thought began to percolate, not quite to the top of the brain-- in other words, not quite fast enough. The terminal stopped echoing before anyone could stop and say 'Hold on Bob, what is it you're trying to do?'"
