Happy birthday, Douglas Adams!

Happy birthday to Douglas Adams (11 March, 1952 – 11 May, 2001)!

A Wholly Remarkable Book


“For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much — the wheel, New York, wars and so on — whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man — for precisely the same reasons.”
― Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (1979)

One of my favorite quotes of his. Recently, NPR asked on Facebook to share favorite NPR memories, and mine was listening to Hitchhiker's Guide with my dad in the car. The two of us were laughing out loud. :)
