In a sense of serving a potentially cornfused viewing public, I'll ask right now:

Is there anyone here that isn't familiar with Douglas Adam's "HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy"?

If so you're best advised to either ignore all references to Improbability Drive, a drink called a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster, and simpering robots. . . or read the five volume trilogy.

Great, now that you've said there is a fifth volume, I'll have to read that too.

Edit: there are actually six novels in this trilogy...

So tell me -- if there's a sixth - what is it?  I presume it comes after Young Zaphod Play it Safe?

Never mind, there is only five. What I thought was the sixth was something else altogether.

There is a sixth, though not written by Douglas Adams, it is an official part of the series authorized by Adams' estate. Called "And Another Thing".

Na, the fitting in bit we have decided will be achieved better in Preston, that out of town at my joint...and no, I just bought a big dust-extractor so that timber working/steel working and auto-body work can happily coexist
