The Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy

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. And 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! Woooh! 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? Its a sort of tingling in my... well I suppose I better start finding names for things. Lets 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 people have speculated that if we knew exactly *why* the bowl of petunias had thought that we would know a lot more about the nature of the universe than we do now.

That film has such a good British cast. Martin Freeman, Stephen Fry, Bill Nighy!

Finding out why the bowl of petunias says "Oh no, not again" was quite possibly the funniest thing ever for me!

I quite often think of how unfair it is that Douglas Adams was taken from us

The bowl of petunias was the reincarnation of the whale.

That movie ******* sucks. I like the old series better. And I LOVE the books. Douglas Adams is great.

Well... The feeling was ok, but they twisted the story too much.
Oh, and Marvin was the best. They made him perfect.
But yeah, the book is the best. All of them.

But we do know why the bowl of petunias thought that, so do we know a lot more about the nature of the universe?

Now I can see the whales
Looming out of the dark
Like arrows in the sky
I can't believe my eyes
But it's true
