In So Long and Thanks for All the Fish, Ford Prefect has a dream in which he meets a creature formed out of the pollutants of New York's East River.
“I instinctively feel”, says the creature, “that I need to be beautiful. Am I?”
The planet of NowWhat was named after the opening words of the first settlers to arrive there after struggling across light years of space to reach the furthest unexplored outreaches of the Galaxy. The main town was called OhWell. There weren’t any other towns to speak of. Settlement on NowWhat had not been a success and the sort of people who actually wanted to live on NowWhat were not the sort of people you would want to spend time with.
Arthut finds NowWhat after a year traveling to the spacial coordinates of the Earth, but ends up here, which is another planet along the probability axis.
NutriMatic Drinks Dispenser
The NutriMatic Drinks Dispenser is Sirius Cybernetics' machine that delivers a cup of liquid that is almost, but not entirely unlike tea. It does this by analysing the user's brain to see what they might find neutritional and enjoyable, but no-one knows why, because it invariably spits out the same liquid.
The octraventral heebiephone is a musical instrument that needs more than one mouth to play.
In one corner of the eastern galactic arm lies the large forest planet Oglaroon, the entire “intelligent” population of which lives permanently in one fairly small and crowded nut tree. In which tree they are born, live, fall in love, carve tiny speculative articles in the bark on the meaning of life, the futility of death and the importance of birth control, fight a few extremely minor wars, and eventually die strapped to the underside of some of the less accessible outer branches.
Old Thrashbarg is an enthusiastic storyteller. A bullshit artist from Lamuella, who Arthur learns to tolerate with a degree of detatched irony.
