The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

And wow! Hey! What's this thing coming towards me very fast? Very very fast. So big and flat and round, it needs a big wide sounding word like... ow... ound... round... ground! That's it! That's a good name - ground! I wonder if it will be friends with me?
Douglas Adams

I don't know how many of you are Douglas Adams fans, but he is a fantastically hilarious author. I am especially fond of his four part trilogy, "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"

Have you seen the latest film?

Which Wildeman is very much like Melvin?

Ooooh my favourite people like THGTTG and I didn't know!!!
I too laughed and laughed, Tab, in fact I laugh when I read random quotes.
Thomas, why have I never seen this shirt? And will you give it to me???
Ramona, I did see the film. I thought it was a very cursory adaptation and Zaphoid's head coming out of his neck thing didn't work for me. I still think the wacky BBC production is campy and great.
Have any of you read the Dirk Gently detective series--also very funny.

Oh, and Ramona...this one is for Thomas:
"You think you've got problems," said Marvin as if he was addressing a newly occupied coffin.
