42...

Today would have been Douglas Adams' 60th birthday....
When I was a lad at school, I gained a great deal of pleasure from 'The Hitch-Hikers' Guide to the Galaxy': having to wait a week between half hour episodes which I taped onto TDK cassette so that I could listen to them many times...
Later, as a teacher, I used to wear a bright orange 'Don't Panic' badge on days when I was invigilating exams, and also referred to Slartibartfast when teaching about glacial coastlines in Norway...
The HHGTTG must have been a little bit like an iPad - small, and handheld with information on its screen....

Just bought the five volumes of the Hitch Hiker's trilogy for Kindle, a special deal that's on Amazon today...
Don't forget the Geographical value in the 'Meaning of Liff' as well...
