A hick, redneck, etc. Commonly referred to Niko by Vlad in GTA4.
Vlad: You remember Ivan?
Vlad: (shows picture) This guy.
Niko: Oh, yes. You guys had a little kiss.
Vlad: Very funny. What would you see if I told he was going to rob your cousin?
Niko: I'd say: 'What problem does he got with my cousin?'
Vlad: (phone rings) Hold on.
Vlad: Hey. Hey, gorgeous, no. I can't talk right now. What are you wearing? Listen, I'll call you back.
Niko: Who was that?
Vlad: Never you mind.
Niko: Was it Ivan?
Vlad: Oh, that's funny. You know, for a damn yokel you're a very funny guy.
Niko: (laughing) Yes. And for an annoying dick, you're really an annoying dick.
Vlad: Well, it is a shame then that I am the guy with the powerful friends, and you are the little punk who's only friend is a fat weasel who drives a fucking cab!
An anti-war book written by Dalton Trumbo sometime in the 1940s and also a movie made in the 70s. Joe Donham is a young man who is drafted into a war based on democracy. He survives the explosion of a mine which ultimately leaves Joe lifeless; he is blind, deaf, and without limbs. His caretakers and doctors do not think he is capable of feeling pain, dreaming, or thinking, all which he goes through. These are some of his thoughts:
"I don't know whether I am alive and dreaming or dead and remembering."
"How can you tell what's a dream and what's real if you can't even tell when you're awake and when you're asleep?"
