The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

  1. The ISS Astronaut Expedition 42 Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Poster Is the Meaning of Life

  2. Why The “Third Boob Lady” Hoax Is Still Incredibly Compelling

    Surprise! We made a dumb internet prank about feminism.

    Yesterday the story of Jasmine Tridevil, a Florida woman who reportedly had a third breast augmented onto her body through plastic surgery, went viral all over the Internet yesterday. It's totally made up, of course. But something about Tridevil's made-up reasons for getting the made-up surgery rang surprisingly true for us.

  4. It’s Friday, So Here are Some Kittens Named After Hitchhiker’s Guide Characters

    Zaphod's just this cat, you know?

His latest litter is set to go to their forever homes pretty soon, but oh my gosh they are named after Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy characters and just LOOKIT LITTLE TRILLIAN D'AW.

  5. Would You Wear Real-Life “Peril-Sensitive Sun Glasses”?

    Warning: they cannot protect you from sunglasses tan.

    In The Restaurant At The End of The Universe, Douglas Adams pioneered the idea of peril-sensitive sunglasses: a pair of shades that darken in tense situations to keep the wearer from panicking. Now, one Hitchhiker fan has made the Joo Janta 200 Super-Chromatic Peril Sensitive Sunglasses a reality.

  12. Google Media Player FCC Filing Includes Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Reference, Gets Our Hopes Up

    We don't know a lot about the Google-built media player, other than the fact that Google made it, and it's a media player, but the device's FCC filing does reveal one interesting tidbit: The model number is H2G2-42. Yeah, you're not seeing things, it's absolutely a reference to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Someone has a sense of humor, or we're getting a really awesome media player at some point.

  15. Today in Geek History: DON’T PANIC! Douglas Adams Was Born

    Science fiction wasn't always the kind of genre that blended well with comedy, at least not on purpose. Some early science fiction was laughable not because of its creator's sense of humor, but for things like gross inaccuracies, cheesy costumes, and canned plots. One man helped change all that. He was Douglas Adams, and he was born on this day, March 11th in 1952.

  17. John Martz Illustrates Three Of Our Favorite Things: Robots, Superheroes, and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

    Don't Panic

    We've posted the work of John Martz before, specifically his Trexels poster, which features pixelated versions of 235 Star Trek characters. But it turns out he's done some awesome The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy fanart, too, and there's just no way I'm not going to post that. It's like making it through a Vogon poetry recitation unscathed. It's not going to happen. Also behind the cut are Wonder Woman, Batman, and Superman designs, plus some miscellaneous robots, because Martz is nothing if not well-rounded in his geeky interests.

  18. The Hobbit’s Martin Freeman Dubs Himself Geek Prince, We Don’t Argue

    I'll Allow It

    "I’m geek royalty now. That’s the main responsibility. It’s not playing Bilbo, it’s my responsibility as a geek prince." - Hobbit star Martin Freeman speaking at the New York premiere of The Hobbit: The Unexpected Journey. Freeman is of course also stars in BBC's Sherlock, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and Shaun of the Dead. Enough to make him a Prince, or is The Hobbit enough? He also told reporters, "I hope by the time my life is over I’ve given [fans] something else to talk about but I think in all reality I think it’s very likely that they’ll be calling me Bilbo." Speaking of fans, several paid $500 to attend the premiere. Proceeds went to the American Film Institute. (via The Hollywood Reporter)   Previously in The Hobbit

  19. Get Your Flair On With These Geek Patches and Scarves

    Fans Do Cool Things

    I love scarves. I love geekery. I really love, therefore, geek-themed scarves, but unfortunately there aren't too many out there available for purchase (barring, of course, the obvious exception). That's why these geek scarves, made by Veronica Bailey (StoriedThreads on Etsy) make my cold weather-loving, sci-fi/fantasy-obsessed heart go pitter-patter. She also makes sew-on patches, and while I personally have never been really into those (I buy them but then never get around to putting them on anything), some of them are too cool not to share.

  20. New Baby Room Idea: The ABCs of Spaceships

    It Came From Outer Space

    I'm trying to think of a favorite spaceship that isn't on this list, but all I'm coming up with is Moya from Farscape, and I'll admit that in a fight based on notoriety alone the Millennium Falcon wins that one hands down. Previously in Space
