This made a lot of people angry and has widely been considered as a bad move.







Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.


Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.

Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.

I just re-read the first of the series. Fun, as always.

I'm going to attempt to hijack this thread and turn it into a science discussion.

In the novel (dunno about the movie or television series--never saw them), a musician named Hotblack Desiato has a car parked at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe. It's black paint is so deep that it's hard to maintain focus on it and touching its nearly frictionless surface is difficult. Well, apparently, scientists on Earth have developed a coating very similar, called Vantablack:

Ordered the original BBC TV series on DVD from Amazon. Looking forward watching it. The definition is going to be terrible, but it's going to be so much better than the movie.

Amazing books. Some of the best writing of all time, IMO.
There was the delivery truck driver who hated rain; it rained on him 365 days a year. He didn't know why:
quote:
"And as he drove on, the rain clouds dragged down the sky after him for, though he did not know it, Rob McKenna was a Rain God. All he knew was that his working days were miserable and he had a succession of lousy holidays. All the clouds knew was that they loved him and wanted to be near him, to cherish him and to water him."



quote:
“There is a feeling which persists in England that making a sandwich interesting, attractive, or in any way pleasant to eat is something sinful that only foreigners do.

``Make 'em dry,'' is the instruction buried somewhere in the collective national consciousness, ``make 'em rubbery. If you have to keep the buggers fresh, do it by washing 'em once a week.''

It is by eating sandwiches in pubs on Saturday lunchtimes that the British seek to atone for whatever their national sins have been. They're not altogether clear what those sins are, and don't want to know either. Sins are not the sort of things one wants to know about. But whatever their sins are they are amply atoned for by the sandwiches they make themselves eat.”

He goes on to say, that if there are *specific* sins for which Britons wish to atone for, they eat the sausages. . .



No arsenal is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.
Ronald Reagan

In many of the more relaxed civilizations on the Outer Eastern Rim of the Galaxy, the Hitch-Hiker's Guide has already supplanted the great Encyclopaedia Galactica as the standard repository of all knowledge and wisdom, for though it has many omissions and contains much that is apocryphal, or at least wildly inaccurate, it scores over the older, more pedestrian work in two important respects. First, it is slightly cheaper; and secondly it has the words DON'T PANIC inscribed in large friendly letters on its cover.
