Having had my memory jogged, I just went and looked up some quotes.

So many absurdly hilarious lines from Douglas Adams' books! I've not read any for years....but I should go back and reread some!

Check these out... :lol:

“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.”

Yep, agreed, always enjoyed Douglas Adams. I know it well.

I also know the kind of people that will quote it ad nauseum and avoid them where possible :D (They also tend to say "Ni" a lot. )

“You know," said Arthur, "it's at times like this, when I'm trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space that I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young."
"Why, what did she tell you?"
"I don't know, I didn't listen.”

Hypothetically speaking, what would you do, if, say, hundreds of magic mushrooms sprang up in your veggie patch overnight?

Asking for a friend.....
