2. "I've tried all the forms of ventilation, and the iron lung is the most efficient and the best and the most comfortable way," -- Martha Lillard, one of the last polio victims still using an iron lung

3. "More often, the relationship was brief with little time for a healthy exchange of sexual history: the presence of a clock in the background allowed us to estimate the time-lag between first acquaintance and sexual intercourse at 20 min on one occasion..." -- Wouter Graumans, William J.R.Stone, and Teun Bousema, "No Time to Die: An in-Depth Analysis of James Bond's Exposure to Infectious Agents," Travel Medicine and Infectious Disease, vol. 44, 2021 (HT: Paul Hsieh)
