May 25 is Towel Day 

“A towel ... is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitch hiker can have.”

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

On May 25, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy fans worldwide pay tribute to creator Douglas Adams by carrying a towel. This towel-carrying tradition is meant to honor a hoopy frood who really knew where his towel was.


If you were to explain The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (HHG2G) to someone who was unfamiliar with it, where would you begin? Where would you end? How would you enlighten them about what it is and why someone should embrace it, without continually stating and repeating the very very obvious?


Virtual nerd races you can do virually anywhere

What is a virtual race? It is an actual event that you participate in, complete the distance and achieve a medal. What makes it virtual? You choose the time and place; it doesn’t have the structure or pressure of a timed race. It is not run in a virtual reality experience or a game, it is real sweat and real achievement.
