„We define: any two events which are indeterminate as to their time order may be called simultaneous.... Simultaneity means the exclusion of causal connection.... Yet we must not commit the mistake of attempting to derive from it the conclusion that this definition coordinates to any given event at a given different place. This would be the case only for a special form of causal structure, a form that does not conform to physical reality.“

„I knew, as everyone knows, that the easiest way to attract a crowd is to let it be known that at a given time and a given place some one is going to attempt something that in the event of failure will mean sudden death.“

—  Harry Houdini Austro-Hungarian born American magician, escapologist, and stunt performer 1874 - 1926
Context: I knew, as everyone knows, that the easiest way to attract a crowd is to let it be known that at a given time and a given place some one is going to attempt something that in the event of failure will mean sudden death. That's what attracts us to the man who paints the flagstaff on the tall building, or to the 'human fly' who scales the walls of the same building. As quoted in The Life and Many Deaths of Harry Houdini‎ (1993) by Ruth Brandon, p. 153
