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)
