    I definitely feel a climate-porn “tingle in my leg”


  2. The Iconoclast says:

    Well, let’s say this Twinkie represents the normal amount of tornadic energy in the Kansas area. Based on the Red Cross’s graphic, it would be a Twinkie… thirty-five feet long, weighing approximately six hundred pounds.

  3. It’s a non-sequitur!

    “Alright,” said Ford, “forget that. I mean … I mean, look, do you know – do you know how the Universe actually began for a kick off?”

    “Probably not,” said Arthur, who wished he’d never embarked on any of this.

    “Alright,” said Ford, “imagine this. Right. You get this bath. Right. A large round bath. And it’s made of ebony.”

    “Where from?” said Arthur, “Harrods was destroyed by the Vogons.”

    “Doesn’t matter.”

    “So you keep saying.”



    “You get this bath, see? Imagine you’ve got this bath. And it’s ebony. And it’s conical.”

    “Conical?” said Arthur, “What sort of …”

    “Shhh!” said Ford. “It’s conical. So what you do is, you see, you fill it with fine white sand, alright? Or sugar. Fine white sand, and/or sugar. Anything. Doesn’t matter. Sugar’s fine. And when it’s full, you pull the plug out … are you listening?”

    “I’m listening.”

    “You pull the plug out, and it all just twirls away, twirls away you see, out of the plughole.”

    “I see.”

    “You don’t see. You don’t see at all. I haven’t got to the clever bit yet. You want to hear the clever bit?”

    “Tell me the clever bit.”

    “I’ll tell you the clever bit.”

    Ford thought for a moment, trying to remember what the clever bit was.

    “The clever bit,” he said, “is this. You film it happening.”


    “That’s not the clever bit. This is the clever bit, I remember now that this is the clever bit. The clever bit is that you then thread the film in the projector … backwards!”


    “Yes. Threading it backwards is definitely the clever bit. So then, you just sit and watch it, and everything just appears to spiral upwards out of the plughole and fill the bath. See?”

    “And that’s how the Universe began is it?” said Arthur.

    “No,” said Ford, “but it’s a marvellous way to relax.”

    He reached for his wine glass.

    “Where’s my wine glass?” he said.

    “It’s on the floor.”
