Science: it's brilliant!
And to convince you of that, here's two pieces of evidence:
1) An impromptu speech given by Douglas Adams in Cambridge in 1998. A work of giant, giggly, mind-bending genius. Best quote?
"Without a god, life is only a matter of opinion."
(Finder's nod: Anna V)
2) New Scientist reports that scientist at Kyoto University in Japan have developed a program where a user can enter a few key words, and a robot will pen a haiku.
Can a book of Bender's verse be far behind?
