The Hitchhiker's Guide to Earth

A group of previously-unknown Earth survivors have decided to compile a series of articles in order to expand its current, almost-insultingly short one in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

To Mr. Ford Prefect:

I, or rather we, understand that you are a researcher for The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and that you had spent fifteen years supposedly gathering information on the planet formerly known as Earth.  When I perused the most recent edition of this fine publication, I noticed a particularly glaring error in the Earth article: its length.

Mr. Prefect, any planet, insignificant or otherwise, is deserving of more than two words.  And no, three words doesn't cut it either.

The correction of this obscenely glaring error, however, will not mean any extra work for you.  A group of us used to call the Pale Blue Dot home, and we've decided to both honor our former home and improve Earth's article.  We've prepared a series of articles regarding various aspects of Earth, to be submitted to The Guide's editors upon your review.

I/we thank you for your time and attention.

Sincerely,

Gwen Guienali

Representative of The Protagonists

The End
