    Oh, I think I vaguely remember that now. I'm better with events than with names.

    But I still don't understand how the reference applies to me.

    He tried to make a funny calling you Texasradioguy. Who I have no idea about since I'm a noob fresh off the boat. :D

    Its best not to dwell on it. He made some reference to Zaf about something to do with TV and comic books or something, that was supposed to be insulting and I was an idiot for not getting it. Just shake your head up and down and he will mumble something about "chatting up a lovely lady at the bar" and move on. :D

    Actually, the Zaphod reference, from which I supose the poster here derives his name, was a book before it was a TeeVee show, in fact a series of five books.

    Actually it was a trilogy. But it was first a radio program before it was a series of books.

    Try to get your facts right.

    Counselor. Read my post. As I indicated, it was a book before it was a TV show. I said nothing about the BBC radio show, nor did my post imply that that was the "first incarnation." As to it being a "trilogy," as I indicated it was five books...

    The novels are described as "a trilogy in five parts", having been described as a trilogy on the release of the third book, and then a "trilogy in four parts" on the release of the fourth book.
    The five books are:

    The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
    The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
    Life, the Universe and Everything
    So Long and Thanks for All the Fish
    Mostly Harmless

    The latter two were not adaptions of the original radio show, but were written by Adams as an extension of the book series.

    You actually get paid to represent people's facts to a court? Amazing!

    Douglas Adams referred to it as an "increasingly inappropriately named trilogy."

    There was also a sixth book - Young Zaphod Plays it Safe - but it is often overlooked (for good reason).

    Saying that Zaphod is a reference from the books without acknowledging the radio series is like saying "Gollum" is a reference taken from "The Hobbit."

    I will defer to your superior experience with loose women, booze, and STDs, but please try to refrain from assertions outside of your specialties.

    And no, I don't represent facts to a court.

    I honestly don't know what you're on about. As I originally said, the series was five books. To refer to it simply as a "trilogy," while acknowledging the author's various puns on the word as the books expanded, is simply incorrect when taken in the literal sense. It's also my understanding that the sixth book was not completed, but I could be wrong about that.

    Since the radio series precedes the books, as "The Hobbit" precedes the LOTR (in both writing and sequence) don't you mean "like saying 'Gollum' is a reference taken from the LOTR?" Regardless, the statement (that it was a book prior to being a TV series), taken in the context of the exchange, wherein JV was indicating that he was unaware of the reference since it was a TV reference, is a perfectly valid statement.

    And I will defer to you on the subjects of hicks, simplistic platitudes, and shallow reasoning, so please try to refrain from assertions outside of your specialities.

    Since you insist on taking the question at its literal value, let me rephrase it. You actually don't make your living in a field wherein linquistic skills and analytic reasoning are important, do you?

    Its hard to get kicked off CU ( very hard indeed).

    But all the losers who've come over here and acted like " their sh*t don't stink " , have always crawled backed to DU and told the Denizens Of The Monkey House that they were kicked off; this way they score brown point with the Legion Of Dunces without having to do anything of substance.

    We need another Thunderdome where we can debate these yoyos one on one.

    Too bad DU doesn't have the balls to do a thunderdome of their own.
