Happy Towel Day everyone!
In honour of this special day, I present the final dozen questions of the triva quiz I’ve made up for fans of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. The quiz is derived from the Primary and Secondary phases of the original radio show.
There are four parts to this quiz:
… and, just for fun, here are links to the companion quizzes for:
(Unless you have access to a hyperspatial field generator, these last links won’t take you anywhere useful… yet.)
Q31: What class of Frogstar Scout Robot is it that Zaphod asks Marvin to stop so he and Roosta can escape?
Q32: Who gets ‘married’ to Lintilla?
Q33: What thought went through the mind of the bowl of petunias?
Q34: What are the whatchamacallits of which the bird-people refuse to speak?
Q35: From where did Marvin fall to create the ‘deep, dark hole’?
Q36: Why did Marvin climb out of the deep, dark hole?
Q37: What was Zaphod Beeblebrox’s full title?
Q38: Where in the Guide can one find the phrase ‘expect the unexpected’?
Q39: What word is only ever used by loose-tongued people like Zaphod Beeblebrox in situations of dire provocation?
Q40: What did Marvin say he was doing for several million years outside Milliways?
Q41: What does the man in the shack call his cat?
Q42: What is the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything?
Note: I’ve attempted to hide the answers by making their text colour white. Click and drag your mouse (assuming you can) over the ‘A:’ lines to reveal the answers. I’ve also put links on most of the answers to places where you can find out more — except for a few where I couldn’t find anything definitive; for those, you’ll have to listen closely to the radio show if you want proof!
Attention dumbphone users: as your phone’s not smart enough… um… unless, apparently, you have it set on ‘Dark mode’… or, err… your ‘phone can actually highlight text (as my brother pointed out to me mine could!) to allow you to reveal the answers, I’ll be posting them all at this address tomorrow. That post will be password protected, and your last clue to that password is: “it’s a number, not a word”.

A33: “Oh, no, not again.”
