Douglas Adams’ Birthday

Douglas Adams’ Birthday

Yesterday was Douglas Adams’ birthday and I totally missed it. In my defense, I don’t think he’ll mind.

Anyway, I thought I’d make up for missing his birthday by posting just a couple of Douglas Adams related things I came across yesterday.

First, Douglas featured on his very own Google Doodle yesterday.

Next, an absolutely brilliant exchange between Arthur Dent and Ford Prefect from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy:

“You know,” said Arthur, “it’s at times like this, when I’m trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space that I really wish I’d listened to what my mother told me when I was young.”

“Why, what did she tell you?”

“I don’t know, I didn’t listen.

Next, an interview Douglas did in 1985 with Letterman.
