And for his next feat, jadenguy went on to prove that black is white and white is black before getting run over at the next zebra crossing. - ErWenn, 2007-06-19: 17:00:00

Having read THHGttG as a kid in the U.S., it took me several years before I realized that a "zebra crossing" was the same thing as a crosswalk. I also thought that Arthur Dent had been forced to wander into the basement of the planning office carrying a fire-burning "torch" as opposed to an electric one (a flashlight). - ErWenn, 2007-06-19: 17:03:00

The number of demented devotees was exceeded only by the record-breaking box office receipts. Clad in their officially-endorsed uniforms, the AGOGALIGALEGION surged forward uncontrollably. This could be worse than the time the bottom dropped out of the Pokemon market. Wallace watched warily as the pumps were primed on the water cannon...
