Along with the rest of the Earth.
England no longer existed. He got that -- somehow he'd got it. He tried again. America, he thought, has gone. He couldn't grasp it. He decided to start smaller again. New York has gone. No reaction. He'd never really seriously believed it existed anyway. The dollar, he thought, has sunk for ever. Slight tremor there. Every Bogart movie has been wiped, he said to himself, and that gave him a nasty knock. McDonalds, he thought. Ther eis no longer any such thing as a McDonald's hamburger.
He passed out.

Don't Panic. There are loads of pages of Douglas Adams quotes out there on the net. I'm well within fair use, and I doubt they mind the build-up to the film. It may sell a book or two. I suppose that maybe I ought to include some Amazon links in a subsequent post.

And if you have Real Player installed (shudder - the Beeb insists on using it sadly ), click the link and listen to the preview of Quandary and Quintessential phases.
In my mind at least as exciting as the movie...

I have one machine that I have Real installed on. I'll check it out from there. Definitely not on my laptop. Zarquon forbid!
