May 25 is Towel Day, a celebration of the life and work of
Douglas Adams, creator of The
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy universe. It is observed by carrying a
towel all day, everywhere you go (a towel being the most useful item an
intergalactic hitchhiker can possess). And it helps to believe in the
redemptive powers of 42, Vogon poetry, and Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters.
