maybe their shrink took exception to Slartibartfast's Fjords and passed it on to the Vogons? They may also be to blame for Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz awful poetry

The poor babel fish,

The Babel fish is small, yellow and leech-like, and probably the oddest thing in the Universe. It feeds on brainwave energy received not from its own carrier but from those around it. It absorbs all unconscious mental frequencies from this brainwave energy to nourish itself with. It then excretes into the mind of its carrier a telepathic matrix formed by combining the conscious thought frequencies with the nerve signals picked up from the speech centres of the brain which has supplied them. The practical upshot of all this is that if you stick a Babel fish in your ear you can instantly understand anything said to you in any form of language. The speech patterns you actually hear decode the brainwave matrix which has been fed into your mind by your Babel fish.

Meanwhile, the poor Babel fish, by effectively removing all barriers to communication between different races and cultures, has caused more and bloodier wars than anything else in the history of creation.

QED...

Regards
M. Gregg

As with 'the great 42 question' does this not tell us more about ourselves than anything else?

Just wondering.
Galileo Galilei :
"Mathematics is the language with which God has written the universe."
42 is just another number of God calculations.

Milliways..

Some music..

The restaurant at the end of the universe..

Stellardrone - Milliways - YouTube

All you have to do is deposit one penny in a savings account in your own era, and when you arrive at the End of Time the operation of compound interest means that the fabulous cost of your meal has been paid for.

Then you can meet the meat...

The new super computer "Earth" is calculating the question to the answer 42.. However just a micro second before the result..it was distroyed by the vogon battle fleet..

All the important changes have happened before the things they were supposed to change and it all sorts itself out in the end. Well thats the theory anyway..it helps if you have a back up plan..
