16 years!

"Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?"

Douglas Adams, one of my favourites..

It's a lovely line. And gardens are lovely.

Though wouldn't it be great if there were fairies at the bottom of the garden as well?

In the context of the book, of course, the skeptic Ford Prefect was totally wrong. Magrathea did in fact exist, and was nuclear armed. With bad results for a bowl of petunias and an innocent whale.

AE, nah fairies are spiteful, self-obsessed little buggers.

I really must read that book again, made me smile, a lot!
