    "*enters password* - WRONG. *resets password* NEW PASSWORD CAN'T BE YOUR OLD PASSWORD... AAARRGGGHHH I've lived through this enough times to want to die, so I finally got tired and tried different password managers. I ended up staying with 1password. It's really easy to use, and has a very reasonable price. I'll never have to remember a bazillion passwords again!!!! FREEDOOOOM!!!!"

      "Authorea is the best thing to happen to academics and other information based writers in a long time. Having access to all of the academic information and citations on one platform makes churning out that research paper a real breeze. Where was this when I was an undergrad? I'd give it 10 stars if I could."

      "While many editors are largely the same, I think what sets this one apart is the ability for other people to see your changes in real time, and for them to write along with you. I don't know what value it would bring over other editors to those involved in a singular rather than a collaborative effort, but overall it's a good design."

      "This sounds great but does it supply the scientific knowledge that I need to write intelligently about anything? I always wanted to be a Theoretical Physicist like Sheldon Cooper but, alas, I don't know the first thing about it. I don't really think that this program is for me."
