In the beginning, the universe was created. This made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.
Douglas Adams

I thought about declaring the San Francisco Bay Area the hiking capital of the world, but it occurred to me somebody might take such a claim seriously enough to expend considerable effort crafting an eloquent counter-claim as to why their neck of the woods is the real hiking capital.

I don’t want that on my conscience.

The brains behind the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy obliges a more universal declaration, I figure, and what the heck, it might look good on a T-shirt or something.

Excuse me, but I’m going hiking now.
