1. The original science-fiction
comedy. Written by the late Douglas Adams

are for sissies.
2. A fictional device similar to a PDA
which contains an encyclopedic database about everything you could possibly want to know about, written by underpaid or unpaid people not really concerned with accuracy (much like UrbanDictionary
). It comes in a box that has the words "DON'T PANIC!" in large, friendly letters.
