Douglas Adams: Parrots, the Universe and Everything

Thinking about apes and monkeys made me remember this talk by the late Douglas Adams, who is, I can say with absolute honesty, one of the main people who made me want to be a writer (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy was very, very important to the twelve-year-old me).  Anyway, later on in his unfortunately short life, Douglas Adams became a great conservationist and environmental activist.  Enjoy.  There’s a great part in the beginning about the return of the lemur’s old enemy: the monkey.
