    I used to know someone with the last name of Swindle. He was a used car salesman.

    There are a LOT of Bakers and Cooks in this area. Not many Hookers, but some, and about as many Drivers. Enough to re-enact "Payback" several times over. I wonder if Lucy Liu has anything lined up currently - she was pretty good in that movie.

    I just had to go google for him. Couldn't find much on Professor Dull, but then he first published that book back in 1941.

    And FYI - this is also the author who gave us, "Plants for Washing Sand and Gravel: Effective and Efficient Equipments for Reliably Economical Work", just in case you might have seen him as one-dimensional.

    I have an old physics book - The Physics of Vibrations and Waves, by Pain.

    My uncle worked with a finance manager named Joe Economy.

    Tsu knew a gyneacologist named Hyman.

    I went into court with a friend once and the judge was rather amused when he called out for a defendant named Rebel.

    When I first saw the book in my college library (many years ago),
    I recall that it had two authors... but I couldn't find a reference to it... until now.

    http://books.google.com/books?id=wD2KxUYCQCUC&pg=PA50&lpg=PA50&dq="Mathematics+for+engineers"+dull

    "Dull, R.W., and Dull, R. 1951. Mathematics for Engineers. McGraw-Hill Book Co, New York."

    Would that be Dull and Duller?



    sorry....

    It's even funnier seeing it on the spine of the book.

    Is that the author... or a warning..?

    Man, that's fantastic! Someone should make that into a poster and sell it!
