Ručnik je, kaže "Vodič", vjerojatno najmoćnija korisna stvar koju međuzvjezdani stoper može imati. Dijelom ima veliku praktičnu vrijednost – možete ga omotati oko sebe da se zagrijete dok skačete za hladnih mjeseci Jaglan Bete; možete ležati na njemu na svjetlucavim plažama mramornog pijeska na Santraginusu V, udišući teške morske pare; možete spavati pod njim ispod zvijezda koje tako crveno sjaje na pustinjskom svijetu Kakrafoonu; upotrijebiti ga kao jedro za minisplav dok plovite niz sporu tešku rijeku Moljac; namočiti ga i koristiti za borbu prsa o prsa; zamotati ga oko glave da zadržite otrovna isparavanja ili da izbjegnete pogled proždrljive bubozdrobne zvijeri s Traala (nevjerojatno blesava životinja, poći će od pretpostavke da ako vi ne vidite nju, ne vidi ni ona vas – glupa k'o stup, ali vrlo proždrljiva); u opasnim situacijama možete mahati svojim ručnikom kao poziv za pomoć, i naravno možete se njime osušiti ako vam se još čini dovoljno čistim.

Još važnije, ručnik ima ogromnu psihološku vrijednost. Iz nekog razloga, ako pješak (pješak: nestoper) otkrije da stoper ima sa sobom vlastiti ručnik, automatski će poći od pretpostavke da također posjeduje i četkicu za zube, ručnik za lice, sapun, paket keksa, čuturu, kompas, zemljovid, klupko konopca, sprej protiv komaraca, opremu za kišu, svemirsko odijelo itd. Osim toga, pješak će onda sretno posuditi stoperu bilo koji od ovih ili desetak drugih predmeta koje je stoper mogao slučajno "izgubiti". Ono što pješak pomisli jest da bilo koji čovjek koji stopira uzduž i poprijeko po galaksiji, izdržava teške prilike, spava bilo gdje, suočava se sa strašnim stvarima, pobjeđuje i još uvijek zna gdje mu je ručnik očito mora biti čovjek na svom mjestu.

Odatle i izraz koji je ušao u stoperski sleng, kao na primjer u: "Hej, kibiš onog hupača Forda Prefecta? To ti je guba kaj fakat zna gdje mu je ručnik." (kibiti: znati, poznavati, upoznati, imati spolne odnose s; hupač: fakat kul frajer; guba: fakat totalno kul frajer.)

(iz "Vodiča kroz galaksiju za autostopere" u izdanju Zagrebačke naklade, prijevod Milena Benini)


A towel is just about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can carry. Partly because it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapours; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand combat; wrap it around your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (a mind-bogglingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you — daft as a brush, but very very ravenous); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course you can dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.

More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag discovers that a hitchhiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, washcloth, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet-weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitchhiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitchhiker might accidentally have "lost." What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the Galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through and still knows where his towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with.

Hence a phrase which has passed into hitch hiking slang, as in "Hey, you sass that hoopy Ford Prefect? There's a frood who really knows where his towel is."
