Now I get it...

That little light goes on...

I'm in the midst of reading The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: so far, it's really good stuff. Funny--like shoot chewed-up pancakes out your nose-funny.

And I finally understand the Vox quote and the blog title over at Nate's. (a language translation site, if you didn't know...) is, I assume, a reference to the book as well.

One of the snippets that made me chortle in surprise:
As he skipped his boat across the seas of Damogran he smiled quietly to himself about what a wonderful exciting day it was going to be. He relaxed and spread his two arms lazily across the seat back. He steered with an extra arm he'd recently fitted just beneath his right one to help improve his ski-boxing.

That's good stuff.
