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.
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.
