Post This may be my favorite book of all time
There's not much more to say other than the above. At what turned out to be a nontraditional funeral for a kid that I helped raise (a neighbor who didn't have a father and who reached to pick up his cell phone while driving -- a fatal mistake), his girlfriend placed a can of Mountain Dew and a pack of Marboro cigarrettes on top of the casket. The preacher stared at them when he noticed, but let them be. When I die, I want a copy of Hitchhiker's on my casket.

Juun: Your avatar reminds me of a question that was in the back of my mind as we were discussing HHG, which is - did Douglas Adams write HHG specifically for geeks ?

Sorry to barge in, but this post (by me), on Philosophy and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (er, also by me), may interest you. Thanks.
