The significance of digital watches

11 September, 2007 (19:36) | Life | By: Nick Dalton

My friend Ken McArthur has managed to stir up a controversy over his watch. Not an ordinary watch, mind you, a digital watch. Now digital watches are nothing to joke about. They have a very special meaning in life, the universe and everything – as any Douglas Adams devotee will tell you.

There are of course many problems connected with life, of which some of the most popular are – Why are people born? Why do they die? Why do they spend so much of the intervening time wearing digital watches?

Here is my advice to Ken: You should keep your digital watch. Not only does it define you, it actually defines the whole human race.

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.
