The dolphins will be leaving on 21st December 2012 - the Mayan end of the world - which is exactly 4242 days after Douglas Adams left on 11th May 2001, the day he supposedly died. (Meanwhile, 4242 is 42 times 101, which is the 26th prime number, and 26 is the number of dimensions in Bosonic String Theory, or the number of Sporadic Groups in Abstract Algebra. It's also the number of letters in the alphabet, and the number of cubes in Rubik's Cube.
"so long and thanks for all the fish."
Douglas Adams FTW

It is important to note that suddenly, and against all probability, a sperm whale had been called into existence, several miles above the surface of an alien planet. But since this is not a naturally tenable position for a whale, this innocent creature had very little time to come to terms with its identity. This is what it thought as it fell: ‘Ahhh! Whoa! What’s happening? Who am I? Why am I here? What’s my purpose in life? What do I mean by ‘who am I’? Okay, okay, calm down, calm down, get a grip now. Ooh, this is an interesting sensation. What is it? It’s a sort of a tingling in my… well, I suppose I better start finding names for things. Let’s call it a… tail! Yeah! Tail! And hey, what’s this roaring sound, whooshing past what I’m suddenly gonna call my head? Wind! Is that a good name? It’ll do. Yeah, this is really exciting! I’m dizzy with anticipation! Or is it the wind? There’s an awful lot of that now, isn’t it? And what’s this thing coming toward me very fast? So big and flat and round, it needs a big wide sounding name like ‘Ow’, ‘Ownge’, ‘Round’, ‘Ground’! That’s it! Ground! Ha! I wonder if it’ll be friends with me? Hello Ground!’ … Curiously, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell, was: ‘Oh no, not again.’ Many have speculated that if we knew exactly why the bowl of petunias had thought that, we should know a lot more about the nature of the universe than we do now.

"Space, is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mindbogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space.”

The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, the books and film are great. I never got to hear the radio broadcast.

Always remember to bring your towel.

The film isn't all that great when you compare it to the radio show.

God DAMN that show is good. You can probably buy the seasons in I-Tunes. Definitely worth it.

*At fist there was a singularity which exploded.

It doesn't matter what was before that singularity, because it doesn't really affect our universe in any way

The creator of the Big Bang theory, George Lemaître, a Belgian priest-scientist, actually claimed that God made an ancient atom which he then let explode and as result the universe. So before the Big Bang there was God.

how does this make him retarded? (I'm an atheist btw)
it is a perfectly valid argument to believe that god set the process of the creation of the universe in motion. maybe not the "first atom that exploded", but a believe that the big bang was the result of some god/being that basically snapped his/her/it's fingers and everything happened.
not my own belief at all, but its more valid than the whole "EARTH IS 6000 YEARS OLD, EVOLUTION IS A LIE" ********

Or someone just heard about the Big bang, then came up with this afterwards.
Thats why I think it sounds so retarded, it's like saying maybe the earth orbits around the sun because God made it so.

Finally someone who knows who George Lemaître is. Also, it was more of an implosion, the atom collapsed on its self and this caused expansion to start.

The atom indeed collapsed on its self as it was getting to hot and the atoms began to collide with each other if I'm not mistaken. It is indeed disturbing that he isn't very popular even if his theory is one of the greatest ever made. It's like Nikola Tesla all over again.

The big bang theory and the christian theory are kind of the same. There was nothing that made everything.

In the begging there was nothing, but then a magical wizard thought up of something and *poof* everything came to existence.

The first person to misquote here with something along the lines of HURR DURR 42 IS THE MEANING OF LIFE will be butt-raped by chainsaws.

The Meaning of Life is a Monty Python movie. Go read the book again.
