Uhh.. well, this is rather embarassing, but I've never read the Hitchhiker's guide... I've meant to, but it's my brothers book (I never buy something I can borrow), and I don't see him very much anymore...

So... I'll go with yes? But that's a guess.

An S.E.P or 'Somebody Else's Problem field' is a cheap, easy, and staggeringly useful way of safely protecting something from unwanted eyes. It can run almost indefinitely on a flashlight battery, and is able to do so because it utilizes a person's natural tendency to ignore things they don't easily accept, like, for example, aliens at a cricket match. Any object around which an S.E.P is applied will cease to be noticed, because any problems one may have understanding it (and therefore accepting its existence) become Somebody Else's. An object becomes not so much invisible as unnoticed.

An S.E.P can work in much the same way in dangerous or uninhabitable environments. Any problems which may present itself to a person inside an S.E.P will become Somebody Else's.
—Captain the Reverend Lord C.S. Rowan, Lord of Glencoe, Minister of Pastafarianism, Gentleman Pirate

You're so nice, RRR. Thanks! :)

That must be exactly how it works, Scott.

Elvalia, you really should read it if you get a chance. Here's the "intro" from http://www.planetclaire.org/hitchhikers/ :

"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 million 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 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.

Many were increasingly of the opinion that they'd all made a big mistake in coming down from the trees in the first place. And some said that even the trees had been a bad move, and that no one should ever have left the oceans.

And then, one Thursday, nearly two thousand years after one man had been nailed to a tree for saying how great it would be to be nice to people for a change, a girl sitting on her own in a small café in Rickmansworth suddenly realized what it was that had been going wrong all this time, and she finally knew how the world could be made a good and happy place. This time it was right, it would work, and no one would have to get nailed to anything."

Love it, love it, love it.

Douglas Adams has ruined cricket for me though. Every time I watch a test I want to take over the world. Still' coming from NZ that's not too much of a problem, our test matches only last 3 days. Maybe Kiwi's suffer from unusually short attention spa........................... Sorry what was I saying. Nevermind.

Don't you mean "build a very, very small bomb that will destroy the universe"? :)

Thanks Scott. :) Like I said, I do intend to read it... I might have to get off my arse and actually do it, one of these days, I guess.

Actually, if you hang around here long enough, we'll probably manage to quote most of it for you, and then you won't need to:

Absolutely. :) how 'bout,

"Disaster Area, a plutonium rock band from the Gagrakacka Mind Zones, are generally held to be not only the loudest rock band in the Galaxy, but in fact the loudest noise of any kind at all. Regular concert goers judge that the best sound balance is usually to be heard from within large concrete bunkers some thirty-seven miles from the stage"

It's so disappointing and predictable that all religions, even sensible joke ones like the Pastafarians, build misogyny into their structure. I'm sure I'm not the only one severely put off by this. It makes a true joke of the Pastafarian creed of equality and tolerance, and makes any accusations made to other groups hollow. What a shame.


You're looking and searching for a reason to be offended.

To turn a phrase, "when you're a nail, every answer looks like a hammer," and you, my dear, are a nail. You see a misogynistic hammer everywhere you look.

Two words, nail: "Goddess worship."

What now?

I’d like to think that if DNA were still around, he’d get a kick out of a thread like this being turned into a tribute to him and HG2G.

I'm surprised yet that no-one has mentioned the Great Green Arkleseizure and the coming of the Great White Hankie...
