I found this interesting read (sorry, it's written in German, but someone may translate the important paragraph)
„Nun, Mister Gödel, wo kommen Sie her?“
„Wo ich herkomme? Österreich.“
„Was für eine Regierung hatten sie in Österreich?“
„Es war eine Republik, doch die Verfassung war so, dass sie in eine Diktatur verwandelt wurde.“
„Oh, das ist schlecht. Das kann in diesem Land nicht passieren.“
„Aber ja. Ich kann es beweisen.“
„Oh Gott. Lassen wir uns da nicht ins Detail gehen.“

As he tells us a system can not be complete in a certain sense (what also is true for the Propeller) he applied his method to other fields of interest too-
Mister Goedel, where do you come from?
Where I come from? I'm coming from Austria.
What type of government you had in Austria?
There was a republic but the constitution was written a way to morphe it into dictatorship.
Sorry, thats bad. This can not happen in this country.
But sure. I can prove it.
Oh God, please don't let us detail that.
