… have just landed on …
Magrathea, an ancient planet located in orbit around the twin suns Soulianis and Rahm in the heart of a dark nebula. The planet’s inhabitants built customized planets (using matter excreted from white holes) for tremendous amounts of money, making Magrathea one of the wealthiest planets in the galaxy. It was the Magratheans who constructed the planet-sized computer named Earth (for a race of hyperintelligent pandimensional beings, the mice) to determine the ultimate question of Life, the Universe, and Everything, which is required to understand the Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything. But when the great galactic stock market crash occurred, the Magratheans went into hibernation awaiting the recovery of the economy to the point where their services could once again be afforded. They were later awakened for the reconstruction of the Earth (the Earth, Mk. II).
One of the chief Magrathean planet designers is called Slartibartfast, he designed the coastline of Norway. Slartibartfast said that he enjoyed doing the crinkly bits and fjords. Better still, he won an award for it.
Me and my sneakers will stay here a bit until we have rested and are fit enough to return to earth.
And with posts like this – I am sure you won’t miss us.
By the (hypergalactic) way, Slartibartfast serves an excellent tea.
