They are friends. Those are friendly petunias
Damn I loved those books. Douglas Adams was as close as a god as you could get. When Hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy turned into a game, I knew it was game over. I played it around 1978. I woke up in the hold of the ship and the babelfish was the moment when I could understand stuff and then I heard the Vogan poetry and I knew the sell-off was complete. And then I saw that stupid BBC series, those bastards, how could you do this to my Douglas Adams?
I was reading Douglas Adams while I was learning Unix. The two go hand in hand. Such stupid s***.
