“The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy”…

I recently bought the “Ultimate” edition of “The Guide” for my Nook….  I am now reading it again on my Nook which is not unlike the book,“The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”, which is a book that Ford Prefect carries around with him in the storyline of the book, “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”…..  Not confusing if you are a fan of Douglas Adams and “The Guide”…..  Douglas Adams was definitely ahead of his time as “The Guide” is described as an “Electronic Book”, small enough for a hitchhiker to carry around in his pocket, containing millions of pages of information, all accessible by pushing the right buttons…..  It’s amazing when you take into consideration that “The Guide” was published in 1979, thirty some odd years before the Nook came into existence…..  The only thing that Douglas Adams missed in his electronic “Guide” was touch screen technology!…..  I am fairly sure that at the rate I am going, I will have millions of pages of information on my Nook…..  I already have thousands on it and it has not used up it’s built-in memory as of yet – And, I have a 32 Gig SD card installed!…  Yep, I predict I’ll have millions of pages on it before I’m done…..  I am seriously considering adding the two comforting words that appear on front cover of “The Guide”DON’T PANICB&N should consider making such a book cover for the Nook….  It would be a outrageously successfully accepted venture…..  I would buy one!…..  Well, “So Long and Thanks for All the Fish”……

  1. I’d like to point out that although he was ahead of his time with an electronic book, the towel has been around a long time.

  2. Yeah, Anon, the towel has been around a long, long time, but, before “The Guide” and Douglas Adams, had it been used as an essential piece of a Galaxy Hitchhiker’s equipment – to aid in the stress caused by instantaneous teleportation onto a Volgon intergalactic constructor spaceship (or any other spaceship, for that matter)?….

  3. To answer that question we must ask ourselves how long Volgons and teleportation have been around. Longer than the towel?

    Something must be wrong with spell check. Says I’m misspelling Volgons and teleportation. Your spell check must be older than either.

  4. I DID misspell Vogons – there is no L in it, but, my spell checker shows that it’s misspelled with or without the L, probably because it’s not in the dictionary since it is a made-up race of beings…. As for teleportation, my spell checker doesn’t indicate that it’s spelled wrong… Hmmmm, we should have the same Blog spell checker….. Strange….. Maybe I need to adjust my towel?…..

  6. That’s the answer, Mr. J….. That’s the easy part – The hard part is the Question?????
