"On the other hand, several people gathered to define the purpose of the universe. After several millennia, they decided to take a lunch break. They still have not returned..."

The dolphins will be leaving on 21st December 2012 - the Mayan end of the world - which is exactly 4242 days after Douglas Adams left on 11th May 2001, the day he supposedly died. (Meanwhile, 4242 is 42 times 101, which is the 26th prime number, and 26 is the number of dimensions in Bosonic String Theory, or the number of Sporadic Groups in Abstract Algebra. It's also the number of letters in the alphabet, and the number of cubes in Rubik's Cube.
"so long and thanks for all the fish."
Douglas Adams FTW

The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, the books and film are great. I never got to hear the radio broadcast.

Always remember to bring your towel.

God‘s Final Message To His Creation is written in fire in letters thirty feet high on the far side of the Quentulus Quazgar Mountains in the land of Sevorbeupstry on the planet of Preliumtarn, which orbits the star Zarss, which is located in the Grey Binding Fiefdoms of Saxaquine. The long path to the message is lined with souvenir stands at spaced-out intervals.

The final message in Marvin's perspective is: “We apologise for the inconvenience.”

<--however this is now widely regarded as Gods final message.

What if we really are alone in the universe, and we'll never know in our lifetime because all of the stars and galaxies are already dead and the light's still coming at us?

It is important to note that suddenly, and against all probability, a sperm whale had been called into existence, several miles above the surface of an alien planet. But since this is not a naturally tenable position for a whale, this innocent creature had very little time to come to terms with its identity. This is what it thought as it fell: ‘Ahhh! Whoa! What’s happening? Who am I? Why am I here? What’s my purpose in life? What do I mean by ‘who am I’? Okay, okay, calm down, calm down, get a grip now. Ooh, this is an interesting sensation. What is it? It’s a sort of a tingling in my… well, I suppose I better start finding names for things. Let’s call it a… tail! Yeah! Tail! And hey, what’s this roaring sound, whooshing past what I’m suddenly gonna call my head? Wind! Is that a good name? It’ll do. Yeah, this is really exciting! I’m dizzy with anticipation! Or is it the wind? There’s an awful lot of that now, isn’t it? And what’s this thing coming toward me very fast? So big and flat and round, it needs a big wide sounding name like ‘Ow’, ‘Ownge’, ‘Round’, ‘Ground’! That’s it! Ground! Ha! I wonder if it’ll be friends with me? Hello Ground!’ … Curiously, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell, was: ‘Oh no, not again.’ Many have speculated that if we knew exactly why the bowl of petunias had thought that, we should know a lot more about the nature of the universe than we do now.

"Space, is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mindbogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space.”
