I'll confess to answering "days of solitude" for some odd reason, but luckily the quiz accepted it!

Great book, but not the only literary reference. (I wouldn't call the 40 thieves Ali Baba's "companions," since they tried really hard to kill him and he was saved over and over by his slave Marjana, who killed 38 of them herself.)

Canonically, the aliens don't actually land at Area 51. It's just where we take them to be studied after they've landed. (The most famous alleged landing was in Roswell, NM, nearly 700 miles away.)

Excellent point. It was seriously like a year ago that I figured out Area 51 and Roswell were NOT the same thing.

^this. Also surprised the slot machine reference is so little known... but then I grew up in Nevada, where they're in every corner store and supermarket.

It may be another US versus non-US issue. I'm in Ohio (who just recently got gambling) and I've known of the one-armed bandits for years.

Same, I'm from Scotland, not well known for gambling, known of one-armed bandits for about 15 years now.

Interestingly Rob Thomas spent a lot of time in Area 51 in his youth, developing aural mind control techniques with the US government that they later used to popularise the mediocre output of his sub par band; simultaneously bending the minds of the masses onto watching reality television and buying useless crap.

It's a Benjamin Franklin saying. It means if you take care of a problem when it's small, you won't have to take care of it when it's huge.

No. The 'stitch in time' notion has been current in English for a very long time and is first recorded in Thomas Fuller's Gnomologia, Adagies and Proverbs, Wise Sentences and Witty Sayings, Ancient and Modern, Foreign and British, 1732:

"A Stitch in Time May save nine."
