Stikkord: <span>Mostly Harmless</span>

I dag ble jeg tipset om at denne bloggen visstnok var blant de 100 største bloggene i Norge, noe som absolutt er hyggelig. Hvis jeg nå bare begynner å blogge om mote og slanking ispedd litt innvandringshets, så vil jeg rase opp på topp 10 på null komma niks…

I den anledning tenkte jeg det kunne passe å si noen ord om hvorfor jeg har kalt bloggen min for unfiltered perception. En uhyre pretensiøs tittel.

Begrepet unfiltered perception plukket jeg opp fra den femte boken i trilogien The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy av den übergeniale Douglas Adams. Boken heter Mostly Harmless, og for de få raringer som ikke har lest Hitchhiker’s Guide, så kan dere få et inntrykk av bokens og seriens stil ved å lese de første avsnittene:

Mostly Harmless

Anything that happens, happens.

Anything that, in happening, causes something else to happen, causes something else to happen.

Anything that, in happening, causes itself to happen again, happens again.

It doesn’t necessarily do it in chronological order, though.

Chapter 1

The history of the Galaxy has got a little muddled, for a number of reasons: partly because those who are trying to keep track of it have got a little muddled, but also because some very muddling things have been happening anyway.

One of the problems has to do with the speed of light and the difficulties involved in trying to exceed it. You can’t. Nothing travels faster than the speed of light with the possible exception of bad news, which obeys its own special laws. The Hingefreel people of Arkintoofle Minor did try to build spaceships that were powered by bad news but they didn’t work particularly well and were so extremely unwelcome whenever they arrived anywhere that there wasn’t really any point in being there.

Alle Hitchhiker’s-bøkene ser ut til å ligge på nettet ser jeg. Ingen anbefalt måte å lese på, men for de som vil smake litt på teksten, så kan dere se her:
