Have you ever purchased something and received the wrong quantity or the wrong size because you assumed the wrong unit of measure?
@steve-o: what do you mean “Am I missing something here?” have you never read THHTTG? Get some sense of proportion.
oh, wait, “the one thing [a sentient being] cannot afford to have is a sense of proportion.” (~p66, TRATEOTU I own an e-book copy, so i don’t know the proper number)
What exactly is an “adams?”

@Steve-o: 42 is the answer to life, the universe, and EVERYTHING.
But what is the question?
@ Micah! Spoiler warning. (but not necessarily in that order)
As punnishment, you must wait seven million years into your next life to read book six of three.
PS: Don’t Panic. Given the extraordinary confusion and miscalculation of scale awash about the universe, this may prove to measure a distance of time more or less equivalent to a number of small dogyears. Or perhaps it’s only just a suffusion of yellow.
As they probably don’t say, but then again who knows, “Time is pobble beads. It’s OK to rack up a few of them. Just be careful how you do the Bistromath.” Meanwhile the hours, if not actual minutes, are good…

Well…. thats the last time Biff ever asks for the planet temperature to be 70 or 80, thinking it twould be Farenheit.
And… for that matter plants love heat, as their photosynthetic processes are optimalized at the balmy temperature of 40 to 50. Centigrade folks. Thats Centigrade.
Knowing Biff from this comic he must be like someone i know and would have ordered the planet at well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
Unless Centigrade does not equal Celsius I believe that is wrong.
to avoid a science lesson stop reading this comment
According to my Grade 12 Biology class C3 plants photosyntheses optamises at abour 20C, however a reverse process called photo respiration optimizes at about 40C. At some point the photosyntheses starts to go BACKWARDS!
C4 plants (and another type that i don’t remember avoid photorespiration and as a result thrive at higher temperatures.
DUH, “slartibartfarst” the name of the planet builderfroh hitchhiker’s guide!
The Imperial system is just so much more interesting.
I wasn’t going to comment, though I like this one, until I saw that the title of the comic is “Slartibartfast” and it made me so happy that I had to thank you. So thanks! It’s awesome that you used that.
I just started reading the comics again. I’ve been looking through the ones i’ve missed and it seems… I MISSED HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY WEEK!! noooo!!!
