"Reports that say that something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns -- the ones we don't know we don't know."

Yeah, we were having a discussion at Rumic the other day, where we ended up saying something just like this, so we had to look it up! Then and now, its quite hilarious..
