Pollyanna says Don’t Panic – the answer is 42

DON’T PANIC.

The answer to Life, The Universe, and Everything is…

is…

Forty-Two.

Join the Pollyannas in celebrating the birthday of Douglas Adams, the creator of “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” – which started as a British radio series, then later became “the increasingly inaccurately named trilogy” of books.

He also wrote “Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency,” and “The Long Dark Teatime of the Soul” which I am always haranging people to find and read. So read them, for crying out loud!

And “Last Chance to See” and “The Deeper Meaning of Liff“.

And don’t miss “Good Omens” with Neil Gaiman. Be sure to read Neil Gaiman’s books too.

Douglas Adams’ books are good in the same way that the sun is a bit warm. His books are funny and quirky, and he had deep insight and understanding of the weird and mostly harmless creatures known as human beings.

Here’s a quick article about him. The little video inside that shows all the ways that you can play with the Google Doodle tribute.
