Default [SU] The HitchHikers Guide to the Galaxy

Quote:
Originally Posted by The HitchHikers Guide to the Galaxy Book I Chapter 8
The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy is a wholly remarkable book. It has been compiled and recompiled many times over many years and under many different editorships. It contains contributions from countless numbers of travellers and researchers.

The introduction begins like this:

"Space," it says, "is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly hugely mindboggingly big it is. I mean you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space. Listen ..." and so on.

(After a while the style settles down a bit and it begins to tell you things you really need to know, like the fact that the fabulously beautiful planet Bethselamin is now so worried about the cumulative erosion by ten billion visiting tourists a year that any net imbalance between the amount you eat and the amount you excrete whilst on the planet is surgically removed from your bodyweight when you leave: so every time you go to the lavatory it is vitally important to get a receipt.)

To be fair though, when confronted by the sheer enormity of distances between the stars, better minds than the one responsible for the Guide's introduction have faltered. Some invite you to consider for a moment a peanut in reading and a small walnut in Johannesburg, and other such dizzying concepts.

The simple truth is that interstellar distances will not fit into the human imagination.

Even light, which travels so fast that it takes most races thousands of years to realise that it travels at all, takes time to journey between the stars. It takes eight minutes from the star Sol to the place where the Earth used to be, and four years more to arrive at Sol's nearest stellar neighbour, Alpha Proxima.

For light to reach the other side of the Galaxy, for it to reach Damogran for instance, takes rather longer: five hundred thousand years.

The record for hitch hiking this distance is just under five years, but you don't get to see much on the way.

The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy says that if you hold a lungful of air you can survive in the total vacuum of space for about thirty seconds. However it goes on to say that what with space being the mind boggling size it is the chances of getting picked up by another ship within those thirty seconds are two to the power of two hundred and sixty-seven thousand seven hundred and nine to one against.

By a totally staggering coincidence that is also the telephone number of an Islington flat where Arthur once went to a very good party and met a very nice girl whom he totally failed to get off with — she went off with a gatecrasher.

Though the planet Earth, the Islington flat and the telephone have all now been demolished, it is comforting to reflect that they are all in some small way commemorated by the fact that twenty-nine seconds later Ford and Arthur were rescued.
If you haven't read all 5 books, you've missed out on a whole lotta life XD

Plot:

After the many adventures of Arthur Dent, Trillian, Ford Prefect Random dent, Marvin (of course) and the many others that helped them along the way, this is not their story. This takes place, many years after, when Arthur is old and Random has had her own children, Sirius Cybernetics Corporation have invented a new type of robot, a new GPP (Genuine people's personality), but these one's are no longer Depressed. they feel more like taking over the Galaxy. They have seized control of the Galaxy, their leader president, and the Ex-president now a Rubber Duck. Armed with Improbability Guns, they're threatening Earth. That's where you come in.
Randoms son, Marvin Dent, is gathering Earth people to board a passing flying space ship, and find the Ex-President.

Between you, you only have two Normality Potions, and a Ship named the Heart of Gold to rescue the Ex-President and save the earth!

Name: Marvin Dent

Age: 17

Gender: Male

Species: human

Personality: Marvin takes after his granbfather in being wuite a calm, unselfish personality. He canet quite anry however, form his mother and sometimes can take it out on other people. But the majority of the time, he's calm, and is a quick-thinker from his grandmother. He's very intelligent, and loves Science , Mathematics and Astronomy. he enjoys stargazing, and wants to go out there one day, and visit The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy office, and maybe work there like his hero Ford Prefect.

History: Marvin is the son of Random Dent and James Dent (They uised the mothers surname, not the fathers.) he was brought up in Islinton, and was visited by Zaphod when he was 6. Zaphod showered him with outer-sapce stuff, and returned every birthday sice then. He likes 'Uncle' Zaphod, as he got him Marvin Mark II, the Heart of Gold (Zaphod stole Slartibartfast's old ship) and the heat-ray glasses. When he was 16, he went with Zaphod for a birthday meal at the Restaurant at the End ogf the Universe, and that changed his view forever.

Appearance: Marvin is pale skinned and has brown matted hair. he has grey ayes, and wears glasses, due to an accident when he was yoinger. His eyes are OK, and glases are atually heat-ray glasses, which Zaphod gave him for his birthday. he's tall and quite lanky, with long les. He wears Jeans and a t-shirt, which is green, and has white trainers on as well.

Why decided to recsue the Ex-President: He knew that the robots could cause desistation,and might even blow up the planet again, and there's only so many times you can blow up a planet without it disappearing forever.

Other: he owns the Heart of Gold

Default Re: [SU] The HitchHikers Guide to the Galaxy

Name: Colin or Bot No. 223219BURe-orderCodeSeqbotrevb
Age: 26? (old gen. charachter re-born!)
Gender: Genderless
Species: Security Robot

Personality: Colin is generally extatic at every moment of every day, he likes being shouted at and just being generally annoying. He can never be angry or depressed because thise emotions have been disabled. Content to be happy all the time, he frolicks in the most horrible and dankest places. These emotions can return, however if you renable the personality chip. Every day, he just wants to serve his master, Arthur, mistress, Fenchurch and their children and grandchild. His favourite thing to do is singing! (Along with being happy)

History: Colin used to patrol the corridors of the Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy offices where, he was rescued by Ford Prefect and had his personality chip disabled so he could be eternally happy. He was captured by the Frogstar but, he escaped to find and serve his master. Ford sent him to serve Arthur and his family. Arthur treats him kindly but, even when Arthur shouts at him he laps it up like a cat with milk and even asks for repeated punishments. He generates many laughs at family get togethers, even more than Slarty Bartfast!

Appearance:
Colin is made from titaninium and has a set of legs instead of that pole, he is also only 1'6".

Why decided to recsue the Ex-President: Because he's so happy!
Other: He is quite happy! (don't know if I mentioned that!)

Changed it now, and I think you should spell-check your sign-up it's a bit rushed.
