Characters from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Have you ever re-read the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy trilogy of five and wondered if maybe you are obsessed with Douglas Adams' writing? If the famous trilogy was not enough, did the radio series satisfy your thirst for more of
the witty prose? Here's how to tell if you are obsessed with Douglas Adams' writing:

  1. You have read the original Hitchhiker's books more than three times each.
  2. You have listened to the radio series.
  3. You have read the Dirk Gently novels, Last Chance to See, The Meaning of Liff and The Deeper Meaning of Liff and The Salmon of Doubt.
  4. You buy the books in paperback, hardback and reprints.
  5. One DVD was not enough, so you have the television series and the movie.
  6. Friends who have never read anything by Douglas Adams seek out stuff for you, including DVDs, books and magazines.
  7. You have clothing in the shade that is 'goo blue' , 'alabaster orange' or 'brunel green'.
  8. When faced with a circular argument, you say '42' and leave the other person to work it out.
  9. Another h2g2 Researcher has posted to you from less that ten feet away.
  10. 'Journey of the Sorcerer' is in your playlist.
