    EOW#69 The restaurant at the end of the universe

    EOW#69 The restaurant at the end of the universe

    EOW#69 The restaurant at the end of the universe (apology's to doug adams)

    Description if you don't already know:
    Milliways, also known as The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, can only be visited practically by time travel, as it exists at the end of time and matter. Marvin the Paranoid Android is one character who manages to reach Milliways without the use of time travel, merely by being very patient. One of the restaurant's major attractions is that diners can watch the entire universe end around them as they eat. The terminal moment is followed by dessert. Reservations are easily obtained, since they can be booked once the patron returns to his or her original time after their meal, and the restaurant's bill can be paid by depositing a penny in any bank account of the present time: by the end of the universe, compound interest will be enough to pay the extremely high bill. Depending on when in Milliways' timeline they visited, the diners' vehicles may have been parked by none other than Marvin the Paranoid Android. Near-instant transportation to the restaurant can be achieved in certain rarefied circumstances, such as being next to an exploding hyperspatial field generator on the planet where Milliways will eventually be built several billion years after the explosion occurs.

    Among the items on the menu are various cuts of meat from the very obliging Ameglian Major Cow and the slightly less obliging vegetables in a green salad. While water and Aldebaran liqueurs are in stock, tea is not.

    Chaos!

    Long time no see.. I haven't been on the forums for a while, and I miss you guys. If at all possible, I will be entering this round. I haven't seen the movie or read the book, but the topic sounds great.

    I'll be back before Nov. 4. Good luck all!

    EPIC!!!

    That's all I have to say

    Buy the book, and remember to celebrate Adams on the towel day!

    I thought that the 69:th EOW would include porn somehow.
    Oh well...

    Dile_: That's not enough.
    I wanna mate with the book.
    Of course it'd not work after that, but heck, I don't care.

    So it's not at the very end of the universe, but it IS during the beginning of the end......
