Everything

Say that 10 times fast.  You can own the typewriter upon which the late Douglas Adams penned one of the most nerdy books ever – Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.  You can buy the typewriter here.  (From BBG)

Zaphod

I think I liked the new Zaphod better.  Less fake heads.  Which brings up another point:

Why is the UK so far behind the rest of the world in regard to tv/film effects?  C’mon guys.

      i just realized that if ben grew his hair out,had a hidden second head, and wore futuristic looking clothes from the 1980s, he would look just like Zaphod Beeblebrox.

      Is that a picture from that “Meet the Zohan” Adam Sandler movie?

      Also, the reason that BBC shows have lesser quality sci-fi special effects and props is because all of their stuff sort of developed out of the stage production tradition and is therefore less concerned with such things.
