    Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun.
    .
    Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-eight milllion miles is an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.
    .
    This planet has (or rather had) a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn’t the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.
    .
    And so the problem remained; lots of the people were mean, and most of them were miserable, even the ones with digital watches.
    .

    (I like to think the third paragraph is the most significant.)

    If you haven’t read “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” I recommend it.

    It’s safe to make any claim as long as no one can disprove it. Personally, who cares?

    Loved the book. The TV show was also quite good.

    Why would anyone live where it is cold and snowy?

    @Alexikakos, Not being a sci-fi literati what are “small green pieces of paper”?

    @TheEtruscan

    I think he’s talking about money.

    More specifically he was referring to American currency which used to be only on green tinted paper. Hence the phrase “American Greenbacks”. Nowadays our currency has some color mixed in – to help limit counterfeiting.

    So in an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet with 7 BILLION ape-descended life forms ONLY the opinions and habits of 300 MILLION of these specimens count?

    Our Canadian currency always had color mixed in to prevent counterfeiting. I remember years ago a teacher of mine saying a friend of his from the U.S. laughed at it and said “it looked like Monopoly Money” to which my teacher replied “at least we don’t have to worry about counterfeits.”
