A Word From Our Sponsor: BrineX Technologies

It is not often we allow our sponsors to be heard from behind the galactic curtain, but in times such as these they often beg.
Our sponsor, BrineX Technologies who you may know as the leader behind such products as: ScrubX Pads, the choice applicator for Telephone Sanitizers, and EffeX, the premiere chewing gum for those afflicted by the swear word syndrome of the *&$% system.


Now to our statement from Vice President of BrineX, Hig Bazinga:
“Here at BrineX Technologies we are dedicated to the latest in Towel cleaning technology.  Today we are happy to announce for you hoopy hitchhikers busy slouching, slumming or reclining that our most advanced laundry service product has been released: Squornshellus Pods. Unlike Tide-pods, our latest product has anti-oral technology.
The research from our top scientists, who are not gagged in a  closet unlike our competitors, shows that the seeds of a mattress from Squornshellous Zeta excrete a potent venom that activates upon ingestion, which means Do Not Stick Them In Your Mouth.  The venom from the mattress pod radically changes the DNA of any animal, or humanoid, that activates it via saliva from their facehole.  Upon activation the mattress seedling will change your DNA to that of the Wigwiggins shrub (so named after the botanist who discovered it) which is the primary nutrient source for all mattresses on Squornshellous Zeta.  

Once you transform into this nutritious shrub a mattress will consume and excrete you allowing for proper fertilization of their nests.  Thus you will be an active participant in the Squornshellous Zeta circle of life.

                                        We understand the need to experiment with mind-altering substances, or simply to follow the latest trends, and not think of the simplest of thoughts, such as: What exactly am I sticking in my mouth? Who told me to do this and why?

We simply ask for you to think it through and not be these two”

The staff at Galactic Hitchhhikers would like to thank the fine folks at One to Grow On Educators for their support of this message:


Thumb Toast To The Frood 2018: HG2G 40th Anniversary Edition

Howdy Hoopy Froods!
In one month will be the 66th birthday of our Founding Frood, Douglas Noel Adams, born on March 11th 1952.  Last year the staff here at Galactic Hitchhiker’s created an annual celebration to honor the first of Froods called “Thumb Toast to the Frood.”  This celebration, now in its second year comes at a time of a great galactic conjunction, the 40th Anniversary of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

If you are new to Galactic Hitchhiker’s, and our Thumb Toast, here is the…

A few of our inter-dimensional members thought it would be a pretty neat idea, something in league with digital watches, to honor the first of Froods, Douglas Adams, on his birthday.  There are a number of authors who have their birthday honored by fans via a Toast or visit to a location associated with said author. For example J.R.R Tolkien has had an annual birthday toast for decades hosted by The Tolkien Society and fans around the globe.  In addition H.P. Lovecraft fans visit his grave and read from his work. Therefore, Galactic Hitchhikers would like to honor Douglas Adams in a similar fashion, but on a more Galactic scale.

For the 2017 celebration we asked froods from across the planet to either send in a message via the form on the Toast page, or take a picture and their Thumb Toast, which you can see a few examples via our 2017 Album.

This year being the 40th Anniversary of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy we have changed up the details a bit and want YOU, Yes You Hoopy Froods, to be a lil extra creative in your submissions. It is entirely up to you how you would like to participate in our 2018 Thumb Toast to the Frood, but we would really love it if you considered these additionals options:

  • can you cosplay a particular character from the trilogy of six?
  • How big of a group can you get together to photograph raising your Thumbs to the Frood?
  • Are you a budding Field Researcher and wish to write Guide entries to celebrate the 40th?
  • Or record something via your sub-etha device & upload it somewhere to share with Galactic Hitchhikers

You do not have to be limited to any of the details of participating, if you have another wild and crazy idea to contribute to our celebration then by all means go for it!!

However, One Last Requirement, as cited on the Thumb Toast Page, please use the #FROODTOAST hashtag
