    • Book: If you've done six impossible things this morning, why not round it off with breakfast at Milleways, the Restaurant at the End of the Universe?

      In Lewis Carroll's book Through the Looking Glass, Alice says "One can't believe impossible things", and the White Queen replies - "I dare say you haven't had much practice. When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
