Now I was so excited when I randomly found this location a while back. I happened to find it on a random tp.

If anyone has seen the movie or read the book, than you will know what this is (hehe). Basically its the scene with the Whale and the bowl of petunias coming to existence for the first time and their both falling from the sky as the whale starts giving names to things he see and feels. While the bowl of petunias has one thought. 😛 I’ll post up what was said to help those who have not heard of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

“It is important to note that suddenly, and against all probability, a sperm whale had been called into existence, several miles above the surface of an alien planet. But since this is not a naturally tenable position for a whale, this innocent creature had very little time to come to terms with its identity. This is what it thought as it fell: ‘Ahhh! Whoa! What’s happening? Who am I? Why am I here? What’s my purpose in life? What do I mean by ‘who am I’? Okay, okay, calm down, calm down, get a grip now. Ooh, this is an interesting sensation. What is it? It’s a sort of a tingling in my… well, I suppose I better start finding names for things. Let’s call it a… tail! Yeah! Tail! And hey, what’s this roaring sound, whooshing past what I’m suddenly gonna call my head? Wind! Is that a good name? It’ll do. Yeah, this is really exciting! I’m dizzy with anticipation! Or is it the wind? There’s an awful lot of that now, isn’t it? And what’s this thing coming toward me very fast? So big and flat and round, it needs a big wide sounding name like ‘Ow’, ‘Ownge’, ‘Round’, ‘Ground’! That’s it! Ground! Ha! I wonder if it’ll be friends with me? Hello Ground!’ … Curiously, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell, was: ‘Oh no, not again.’ Many have speculated that if we knew exactly why the bowl of petunias had thought that, we should know a lot more about the nature of the universe than we do now.”

And for those not wanting to read that excerpt here is the clip from the movie.

And here is what the whale and petunias look like in-world –

Keep in mind when you tp to this location, it is very high in the sky so you will start falling when you arrive there. So make sure to fly so you dont fall to the ground. But, the whale is very large can’t miss him.
