Anyways. The point is, this sunday is Pan-Galactic 42 Day. So how should we bloggers celebrate or mark this occasion? I have a proposal, and don't worry this one doesn't have anything to do with political parties making bold and visionary (thus highly unlikely) agreements like most of my proposals.
This proposal is simple. This sunday, on your blog, release a post to be added to that most remarkable of all books ever to come out of the great publishing corporations of Ursa Minor, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The post should be on the topic your blog normally discusses with the aim of opening the eyes of the shortsighted humans on Earth who usually have no interest in galactic matters. I will, of course, be writing a summary of the many different, and surprisingly progressive, democratic systems used by other planets in the galaxy and beyond. How do the Silastic Armorfiends choose their Senators? How do the sentient matresses of Squornshellous Zeta select their chief negotiator for the next year's mattress culling? What kind of voting system allowed Zaphod Beeblebrox to become president of the galaxy? And how many sub-triplicate forms do the Vogons needs to fill out to exercise their franchise? All this and more will be revealed on Sunday. And you should get writing your own poignant H2G2 entry for 42 Day as well, this might help .
On the surprising chance that anyone reads this and actually does it I'd be happy to add links to your 42 day blog on this page, but you probably stopped reading this when I got to the Armour Fiends. Stupid humans.
