Douglas Adams Quotes I Can Remember:

"The ships hung in the sky in exactly the way that bricks don't."

"Let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all."

"I love deadlines. I love the whooshing sound they make as they go by."

"For a moment, nothing happened. Then, after a few seconds, nothing continued to happen."

"Anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job."

"This must be Thursday. I could never get the hang of Thursdays."

"We demand rigidly defined areas of doubt and uncertainty!"

"There's no point in using the word impossible to describe something that has clearly happened."

everyone go read the Hitchhiker's Guide books, and Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

"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."

@jacethechicken i finally got around to watching some of the 80s bbc tv show of hitchhiker's guide, and it's basically the radio show with pictures, i love it

Good thread, time for me to read hitchhiker's guide again

@jacethechicken Did you-" Thor tried to search for a way of saying "glue me to the floor" which didn't sound like "glue me to the floor," but eventually the pause got too long an he had to give up "--- glue me to the floor??"

@jacethechicken honestly I basically say this to dogs all the time. pretty sure they are much smarter than us.

@jacethechicken Dolphins are assholes, though. Not usually to humans, but to just about anyone else.

Then again, so are we.

@jacethechicken
"Space," it says, "is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the street to the chemist's, but that's just *peanuts* to space. Listen..."

... and so on.

"I love deadlines. I love the whooshing sound they make as they go by."

That was my senior quote in my high school year book. I love me some Douglas Adams :)
