Douglas Adams would have been 60 years old today.
Things to do in honor of his memory…
Have a Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster.
Find that moldering copy of The Worshipful and Ancient Law of Gallifrey that’s gathering dust in your attic.
Recite Vogon poetry.
Walk around with a towel.
Blow a deadline just so you can hear the fluttering wings of deadline fairies as they fly by.
Get a sofa stuck in a mathematically impossible position in a stairwell.
Read this tribute by Terry Jones.
In short, don’t panic today. Douglas wouldn’t have wanted you to.
