It's Towel Day.

That rally in treasuries is helping stocks but BTC continues to feel vulnerable without a decisive break into the mid-30s. UST price action is a little surprising according to CoinMarketCap:

Curious Cryptos’ Commentary – TOWEL DAY!! ALL REJOICE!!

Hard on the heels of Pizza Day the singularly most important cultural phenomenon of all time is celebrated today.

Towel Day is the day we give thanks to Douglas Adams, and his astute evisceration of the pain we all suffer because of centralisation and the associated structures that are built on such weak foundations.

If anyone is not following me, you do know the answer is 42?

Does this help jog your memory?

This time my photo and my house. I am quite pleased.

Possibly the funniest line in the five part trilogy. It tickles me anyway:

“There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.”

But there are some other contenders:

“It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination.”


“It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.”


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

And let’s not get on to Agrajag.

Ok, just because you insist.

"Oh no, not again" (Agrajag presented in one of his many lives as a bowl of petunias) as said bowl crashed into Magrathea, the planet building planet, alongside a whale.

HHGTTG had this to say about the whale/petunia mutual destruction:

“After which many people speculated that if we knew exactly why the bowl of petunias thought this, we would know a lot more of the nature of the Universe than we do now.”

Arthur Dent has a lot of weight on his shoulders.

The dolphin and mice summary from the BBC is pretty good:

Slartibartfast: “Oh yes, did you ever go to a place called Norway? That was one of mine.”

Those who live near CCC towers are overly familiar with Hotblack Desiato, who is the frontman for Disaster Area and also the name of our local estate agent. Those facts may or may not be connected.

It has been reported that Hotblack died, but I do have an exclusive in which I report:

“It’s a tax scam,” said press representative for the band, Blurg Fraldutz, adding “and a damn good one.”

All of us will remember forever these immortal words:

“Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun. Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-eight million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.”
