Lee was: the Supplicant  ? 
Answered on: 20 Apr 2005

The Internet Oracle has pondered your question deeply.
Your question was:

> Great Oracle, who knows a hundred recipes for drinks more powerful
> than a pan-galactic gargle blaster; who can calculate improbability
> levels to one million decimal places in his head; who, although your
> brain isn't literally the size of a planet, gets a headache just
> thinking down to my level; and who's a hoopy frood who *really* knows
> where his towel is, please share with me but a tiny fraction of your
> light of knowledge and tell me . . . will the shortly forthcoming
> Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie be any good?
And in response, thus spake the Oracle:

} Answering this question was somewhat difficult, as your humble oracle
} had to evade a Somebody Else's Problem Field just to get into the advance
} screening.
} All I can say, though, is that the producers will be first against the wall
} when the revolution comes.

Notes: If you're not a fan of the Hitchhiker's Guide books, you probably didn't understand most of that. Sorry. One response received before I got the above (from someone who apparently wasn't a fan):

} Heck it'll be great! The Oracle gets a 4% cut in the action-figures
} profits, a whopping 12% in lunch-pails, a decent 3% in tee-shirts,
} and a controlling 67% of any breakfast cereal tie-ins that come to
} fruition. Consulting is the way to go. The public is so starved
} for entertainment anything with even a whiff of college-student
} approved coolness is Big Bucks, Big I say!!
} You owe the Oracle some well deserved thanks for the Fish-Sticks
} sales jingle he penned that you'll soon be hearing everywhere.
