Q: Somebody just posted that Roman Polanski directed Star Wars. What
should I do?

A: Post the correct answer at once! We cant have people go on believing
that! Very good of you to spot this. Youll probably be the only one to
make the correction, so post as soon as you can. No time to lose, so
certainly dont wait a day, or check to see if somebody else has made the
correction.

And its not good enough to send the message by mail. Since youre the
only one who really knows that it was Francis Coppola, you have to inform
the whole net right away!

At the heart of science is an essential tension between two seemingly
contradictory attitudes -- an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre
or counterintuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny
of all ideas, old and new. This is how deep truths are winnowed from deep
nonsense. Of course, scientists make mistakes in trying to understand the
world, but there is a built-in error-correcting mechanism: The collective
enterprise of creative thinking and skeptical thinking together keeps the
field on track.

One of the major difficulties Trillian experienced in her relationship with
Zaphod was learning to distinguish between him pretending to be stupid just
to get people off their guard, pretending to be stupid because he couldnt
be bothered to think and wanted someone else to do it for him, pretending
to be so outrageously stupid to hide the fact that he actually didnt
understand what was going on, and really being genuinely stupid. He was
renowned for being quite clever and quite clearly was so -- but not all the
time, which obviously worried him, hence the act. He preferred people to be
puzzled rather than contemptuous. This above all appeared to Trillian to be
genuinely stupid, but she could no longer be bothered to argue about.
