Das hat babelfish uns zu sagen:
"The Babel fish," said The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy quietly, "is small, yellow and leech-like, and probably the oddest thing in the Universe. It feeds on brainwave energy not from its carrier but from those around it. It absorbs all unconscious mental frequencies from this brainwave energy to nourish itself with. It then excretes into the mind of its carrier a telepathic matrix formed by combining the conscious thought frequencies with nerve signals picked up from the speech centres of the brain which has supplied them. The practical upshot of all this is that if you stick a Babel fish in your ear you can instantly understand anything said to you in any form of language. The speech patterns you actually hear decode the brainwave matrix which has been fed into your mind by your Babel fish.
"Now it is such a bizarrely improbable coincidence that anything so mindboggingly useful could have evolved purely by chance that some thinkers have chosen to see it as the final and clinching proof of the non-existence of God.
"The argument goes something like this: ’I refuse to prove that I exist,’ says God, ’for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.’
"’But,’ says Man, ’The Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn’t it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don’t. QED.’
"’Oh dear,’ says God, ’I hadn’t thought of that,’ and promptly vanished in a puff of logic.
"’Oh, that was easy,’ says Man, and for an encore goes on to prove that black is white and gets himself killed on the next zebra crossing."
Soweit ein kleiner Auszug aus dem "Anhalter", aber das Wichtigste steht in großen,
freundlichen Buchstaben oben drauf: "DON’T PANIC"
Was es sonst noch über mich zu sagen gibt?
Nicht allzuviel, wer mehr wissen will, soll mich einfach mal fragen, ok?
Übrigens: Ganz ganz viele dicke Küsse gehen an Prinzessa, mein Ein und Alles!!!
