Hasta luego, y gracias por todo el pescado

Hasta luego, y gracias por todo el pescado

Parece mentira, pero esto ya se acaba. No sé vosotros, pero yo me lo he pasado increíblemente bien durante este Día de la Toalla: he recomendado "La guía del autoestopista galáctico" a todo el que he podido (tanto en persona como a través de este blog), he comprobado que hay fans más de los que yo me atrevía a soñar y he recordado pasajes de la saga que ya tenía olvidados. O sea, que no me lo hubiera podido pasar mejor ni con un Motor de Improbabilidad. Personalmente, creo que si lo que hemos hecho hoy entre todos sirve para que un sólo humano se acerque al universo del gigantesco Douglas Adams, entonces habrá sido todo un éxito. Y habrá servido para algo, que es de lo que se trata.

De modo que muchas gracias a todos los que os habéis desmarcado del borreguismo friki y habéis apoyado una celebración tan especial como esta. Y, para despedirnos, qué mejor que unas perlas seleccionadas de sabiduría galáctica. Esto es lo que tiene que decir "La guía del autoestopista galáctico" sobre...

... EL UNIVERSO: In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

... LA TIERRA: Ford Prefect logged his most recent update for The Guide under the entry for Earth. After 15 years of meticulous research, he was able to expand upon the entry from Harmless to Mostly harmless.

... LA POLÍTICA: To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. To summarize the summary: anyone capable of getting themselves made President should by no means be allowed to do the job. To summarize the summary of the summary: people are a problem.

... TRILLIAN: Trillian’s tale is a simple one of girl meets boy, girl immediately ditches boy for alien president of the galaxy, girl meets boy again after Earth is destroyed (under very improbable circumstances), boy professes feelings for girl, girl plays hard to get, boy gives up, girl discovers she made a mistake with alien president of the galaxy.

... LA EVOLUCIÓN: The History of every major Galactic Civilization tends to pass through three distinct and recognizable phases, those of Survival, Inquiry and Sophistication, otherwise known as the How, Why and Where phases. For instance, the first phase is characterized by the question How can we eat?, the second by the question Why do we eat?, and the third by the question Where shall we have lunch?

... LOS DELFINES: Man has always assumed that he is more intelligent than dolphins because he has achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins have ever done is 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.

... EL AMOR: The Encyclopedia Galactica describes love as being a debilitating psychosomatic illness that is caused by production of various hormones in the victim’s body that they are either unaware of or simply unable to control, and goes on to list the various medical treatments available, how to deal with your friends’ unwanted support, and which planets in the galaxy are the best for tearfully listening to poignant songs on.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy has this to say on the subject of love: Mostly painful.

¡Como le ha cundido el día!. Yo no tenía ni idea de la celebración hasta que lo he leido en su blog, y me he puesto a releer la guia a modo de celebración privada. En cuanto a lo del orgullo friki... a quien le guste, ¿no?
