I suddenly feel very insignificant.

Lighthouse: huh? Another one of your cryptic posts. You say "Betelgeuse again" like everyone knows what that means. I searched the forum and it's not something discussed here before. I suppose it could be a Hitchhiker's Guide reference because Ford Prefect is from there, but how obscure.

Scott, thanks for the explanation. It sucks to be screwed over like that, but Lighthouse seems to have turned out OK. I like him, even though he's a bit of an odd duck.

I do remember hearing how the HHGTTG motion picture went through many drafts, directors, and turmoil. The IMDB says "20 years of development hell". The movie was OK, but not great. I have the BBC miniseries on DVD, instead.

I'll try to remember to run all of his posts through an HHG filter to see if they make more sense that way.

I like"odd ducks",people like Lighthouse are ok in my book.He's very helpful,and I don't recall him stirring up any crap,I could care less about anyones off wall statements.That's what this forum is about,being silly,if you want.We could benefit by having more like him.

thanks Bartman. I didn't have a clue what you guys were talking about before. But a bit of logical and lateral thinking brought me to the conclusion of what that video portrayed.
