    I'm not a huge fan of the Hitchhiker series. Rather, I read the first book, and it didn't grab me.

    Go to Circles, there's a tab for "People who've added you".

    I think that displays what you want.

    I suppose it's not as bad as Mostly Harmless was but it Adams' issues were also bleeding through a lot more in that book and it tainted my entire reading.

    Nah. It really, really isn't. The actual prose is probably okay, not really my area, but the story is a clusterfuck of Adams' personal issues being a negative influence.

    The last hitchhiker book was also bad because he wrote it when he was having a bad year. I was just reading an interview where he spoke about it earlier today.

    Speaking of Douglas Adams, he wrote something that makes me laugh everytime I read it, no matter how many times I read it.
    Spoiler:

    Now I have to forget I ever heard it because it'll accidentally become a comic in like a year from now and I'll think I came up with it.



    great artists steal, ron

    the book had a very different tone from the other four

    and you might not like that tone

    but there wasn't anything inherently wrong with it

    And Random seemed kinda whiny. Might be misremembering it, though. Only read through that book once and then took it back to the bookstore for exchange.

    She also appeared in And Another Thing, but I bought that on discount clearance sometime last year and haven't finished it yet.

    But there is. It wasn't really what he wanted to do with his characters, as he admitted later on when he'd worked out some of his issues more. The ideas presented are really fragmented and abrupt. There are some good parts, but it is not a very good book.

    Yeah, but that happened in Mostly Harmless, where the issues were more noticeably issuing. So Long and Thanks For All The Fish had the bit with Marvin I was referring to.

    A good nickel, not some rusty old thing you find under your couch cushions.

    ever since I first heard that wooden nickel thing, I thought "Man, I want a wooden nickel. Where can I get these things I'm hearing so much about? I'll bet it looks cool."

    Edit: Oh right, the internet knows all.

    I always wondered how old timey hooligans got that hole in their nickle to loop the string through

    did they even have consumer power-drills in the thirties

    out of all the shrek porn I've GISed in the past 30 seconds

    the first result from pornotiger.com is by far the most inspired

    This is a prayer bead carved in the 16th century, it's about the size of a walnut and was carved from a single piece of wood.

    Pretty sure they could make a snall hole in a piece of a wood.

    Yeah but wouldn't a nickle be made of

    you know

    metal

    unless machines could be fooled with wooden nickles back then which I guess is fairly likely
