I was just reading Douglas Adams's thank you note. As I was getting near the bottom I suddenly noticed that while I was reading it, I was actually hearing the voice of the guide from the Hitch Hikers TV series reading it to me in my head.

More to the point, I'll bet that now everything I read here will have the same effect.

Is that weird or does everyone get it?

eerie, huh?

When reading H2G2 the only way to do it properly is to imagine that rich voice giving you the very latest information in the style of the original guide. Of course, it helps when the text is written by the original author.

I have that in every-day life. I hear someone mention space and I immediately go into my H2G2-mode : Space is big.....

You may think it's a long way to the chemist but that's just peanuts to space...

But is it all that annoying? Personnaly I have a very insacure mental status and every time I start reading the voice in my head starts hurling abuse at me, it's nice to log on to h2g2 and be vulgarised by a rich stirling voice.

I actually heard Douglas Adams’s voice while I was reading this now that I think about it, but I can see where the voice of the Guide might crop in!

I personally would find this quite fun. Hell, it would sure take the monotony out of everyday existence!smiley - holly

I get exactly the same thing, only its Thora Hird's voice... Actually now that I think of it, it only happens when I watch "Stars on Sunday," so forget that...

And sometimes its Harry Secombe.

thank goodness I had my towel; otherwise the Bugblatter beast might turn and realize that I was not invisible because HE COULD be seen!
