    Small, Yellow, Leechlike

    I've got to go with the Babel Fish.  Though Vogon Poetry, The Infinite Improbability Drive, and Slartibartfast's Fjords rank high on my list. Now it is such a bizarrely improbable coincidence that anything so mind-bogglingly useful could have evolved purely...

    My Favorite Line From The Series

    I believe this excerpt is from The Restaurant at the end of the Universe. Allow me to attempt to set up the scene: Ford and Arthur somehow travel back in time and get onto a ship filled with humanity's ancestors. The captain litterally spent centuries sitting in a bathtub. He...

    Douglas Rocks!

    Adams's books are the best I have ever read! I have probably read hitchikers 7 times and the other books at least 3 times each! I just have trouble finding Last Chance To See. If anyone knows where I can find it, please let me know! Great group by the way! Till later!

    Genius

    Douglas Addams was a genius.  To think the whole idea came to him in a drunken stupor.I believe that The Hitchhiker's Guide is a sarcastic, but none the less, accurate look at life.

    I own the Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide and I couldn't put it down until it was finished. I don't know which book was my favorite, but I saw the movie before I started reading. I kept seeing Mos Def as Ford Prefect and heard the voice of Alan Rickman when Marvin talked. I laughed...
