In Erinnerung an den kürzlich verstorbenen Douglas Adams wurde der 25.Mai zum Towel Day erklärt. Aus Respekt vor dem Genie und weil es laut dem Hitchhiker's Guide einfach das praktischste Teil ist, wird empfohlen heute nirgends ohne Handtuch hinzugehen.

Und ein Zitat aus dem Hitchhiker:

"A towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value - you can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapours; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine soredly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a mini raft down the slow heavy river Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or to avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (a mindboggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you - daft as a bush, but very ravenous); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough."

Remember Douglas Adams.
