DON’T PANIC

Tags:

A towel, it says, 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 so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft 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 avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-bogglingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can’t see it, it can’t see you — daft as a brush, but very 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.

More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: non-hitch hiker) discovers that a hitchhiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, face flannel, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitch hiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitch hiker might accidentally have “lost.” What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with.

Hence a phrase that has passed into hitchhiking slang, as in “Hey, you sass that hoopy Ford Prefect? There’s a frood who really knows where his towel is.” (Sass: know, be aware of, meet, have sex with; hoopy: really together guy; frood: really amazingly together guy.)

Ringworld’s Children

Ringworld's Childrendi Larry Niven

The differences between ally, servant, slave, and sled dog blur when the difference in intelligence is great enough.

Tra la Fringe War degli avvoltoi della galassia, il graduale degrado cui è soggetto Ringworld, e il graduale degrado dell’autore, solo un protettore “notturno” come Tunesmith, un protettore “animale”, un protettore “umano” e un protettore “antichissimo” (Pak) possono risollevare lo stato d’animo del lettore e, chissà, le sorti del più grande, complesso e sconvolgente mondo artificiale mai creato da mente umana.

My head feels futzy. Full of cotton. I never felt so much myself as when I could think like a protector.

Blind Spot…

Le Cosmicomiche

di Italo Calvino

Fu allora che mi misi a secernere materiale calcareo. Volevo fare qualcosa che marcasse la mia presenza in modo inequivocabile, che la difendesse, questa mia presenza individuale, dalla labilità indifferenziata di tutto il resto. […] Così incominciai a fare la prima cosa che mi venne, ed era una conchiglia.
