Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun. Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-eight million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea...
ZING!!!

Sincerely,

BTW, that was written in the '70s and even then Douglas Adams thought digital watches were cheesy.
Especially those earliest red LED units that required the other hand to press a button, thus illuminating the display. Hence Arthur Dent's concern when he saw his arms drifting into the sunset, "How am I to operate my digital watch now?"

Sincerely,

Bill
