If you want to survive out here, you've got to know where your towel is.

Friday Towel Blogging.

Today is the anniversary of the death of the greatest man the universe has ever had the temerity to squat out- Douglas Adams.

In memory of this great man don't forget to take your towel with you wherever you go.

If you have a minute you might want to play a little bit of the Infocom Text Adventure based on the book. The "Babel Fish" puzzle is universally considered to be the hardest puzzle ever included in a computer game.

(I made that last bit up but it's true.)

Then don't forget to drink a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster in memory of Douglas.

Adams is great... but that movie sure sucked.

Back at you and I just want to say I've always been impressed with your really cool digital watch.


I agree but with a couple of caveats- that Dolphin song with Adams wrote as he'd been working on getting the film made for years before he died and my favorite part of the whole film - the last flight of the Heart of Gold as it morphs from flower pot to bee while ending on the most improbable thing the universe has ever known (or will know-)

Douglas Adams.
