Hitch your wagon to a star/ Vogon Ship

Well, I finally read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy! I must say, I seriously recommended to sci-fi fans,  as many jokes common in devoted sci-fi, real-fi, hi-fi, lo-fi, and just plain nerdesque circles rely on some of the jokes from this book. Not only that, but it is hilarious in it's satire of novels in futuristic settings, making jokes that range from artificial intelligence, to the to making fun of humans on earth!
Spoiler : Read the book first!
{The Vogons were really intended to be a reflection of people when they become sluggish, boring, crass, uncaring, etc. They know what is right and what is wrong, yet, they do what is wrong, not because they want to in all cases, but because they simply don't care for a minor inconvenience. I truly enjoy the way Mr. Adams brought this out, he was a remarkable author.}
