Douglas Adams

Douglas Adams may well have been the funniest man ever to grace our humble planet. He is best known as the genius behind The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series, which follows Earthling Arthur Dent and his alien friend Ford Prefect through many a cosmic adventure. He was also an ardent environmentalist and techie, though he never let his passions take precedence over his humor. Many of his witticisms are now world-famous, but this one in particular may find a special place in the heart of a new college student: "I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by."
