Arthur Dent, one of the characters I was thinking...

I would say Spider Jerusalem. Let me now see how many of you know this guy without looking at Wikipedia or Google. Yahoo included, don't be a smartass... Smile

And of course, Tyler Durden...

P.S.

RE: Favourite Fictional Character?
My favourite literary character is (you would have never guessed Tongue):

"Zatamon" from the book "Kazohinia" by Sandor Szathmari!

English translation of Kazohinia is online.

Short excerpt:

Quote:"I told him about Plato's state, Saint Thomas Aquinas's principles of the divine universality of the outcome of labour, the common work of the Cathari and the Hussites, Fourier's phalansteries, Thomas More's Utopia, Proudhon's people's bank, Louis Blanc's national workshops, Robert Owen's social manufacturing plants, the communal states of the Dominicans and Jesuits in South America, and finally I came to scientific socialism and the latest theories, to the plans of Marx, Lenin, Bakunin, Bernstein, Kropotkin, Kautsky and Plekhanov, and to technocracy and the democratic socialism of the Fabian Society, Wells and the Webbs. I spoke of the work theory of mercantilism and physiocracy, of the liberalism of Adam Smith, and of the trade unions; nor did I fail to mention the ideas that had not materialized, such as Georgism, syndicalism and anarchism.

For his life he could not understand how it was possible to imagine so many things concerning such a simple thing as life."

"Only the words and the names of the theories can be varied," he countered. "Not life itself, which is predetermined by our organism. And anyone who attributes independent life to the words, is sick and a somnambulist."

"But from these words economic systems are born," I retorted.

"Is it not all the same in which system you are ill? (Zatamon's reply)

I can very strongly recommend this book -- it had a MAJOR influence on my thinking. Smile

Wow- that sound's really good -thanks for the online link. I'm a slow reader but, I'm going to shift it to the top of my reading list.

I have a similar influence ... a book called We by Yevgeny Zamyatin. I think I read it in my teens ... it seduced me with numbers. I don't know if it's in print anymore... if it isn't it should be.
ooh... I just pulled it up on amazon... it says "new edition". I am very pleased. Smile

Here's a wikipedia link ... looks like the idiots give away much of the plot... no matter, that's not what it's really about.
I rarely recommend books because I rarely know what people are into. But this is a quick read and if you like numbers... it may stick with you.
Heart

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/We_(novel)

Two of my favorite fictional characters happen to be from this book - D503 and I-330.

I also like:
House's, Gregory House
Ironweed's, Francis Phelan
The Crying Game's, Fergus
Shakespeare's, Hamlet
The Great Gatsby's, Nick Carraway
Wicked Witch of the West

Heart I almost want to count several authors ... many have a tendency to put so much of themselves into their characters and they make me love them.

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.
