Please, don't panic: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy has been published on October 12, 1979.

Exactly 42 years ago 🙊

@fribbledom I didn't realize Hitch Hiker is a few days younger than me 😁4️⃣2️⃣

@fribbledom No wonder I've been watching alnd listening to all of those this week!

Not to be pedantic or anything, but the definitive version (radio) came out in March of 1978.

@fribbledom Waiting for the bird before panicking. All is fine until then.

@fribbledom The one and only Douglas Adams: A hoopy frood who really knew where his towel was.

There was already a lot of celebration few months ago, around Towel Day, but apprently today is the actual day.
Well observed :thumbsup_hmn_h2:

@fribbledom #towelday as co-part to yesterday shines brightly in may a d in my mind. However the memorial day of Adams himself on 5/11/2001 looks like a sinister announcement to 9/11. Also the latter overcasts and shades memories of Adams.
