Always on the cutting edge of science, art, literature, and technology, and determined to remain there, we watched The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy last night.

Just 42 days (and 8 years) after it’s release in theaters.

But time is nothing if not relative.

And it’s certainly not the only yardstick for a life well lived.

If you’ve seen the movie, which character did you like best?

I rather enjoyed Marvin, that perpetual naysayer of doom and gloom voiced by Alan Rickman.  Imagine Eeyore as an paranoid Android and you’ve got the general idea.

If you haven’t seen the movie yet, here’s a trailer that might (or might not) pique your interest:

Aah . . . that’s better!
