"It's not Ford Prefect's spaceship. It's the Heart of Gold. And I quote from the radio series:
(That's true in the book as well; I shouldn't be writing these articles at 1 am, but that's when I have time! Thanks for the correction; I fixed it in the article.

Ford: Which government owns this ship? Marvin: No governments owns it. It's been stolen. Ford: Stolen? Marvin: "Stolen"?"

"Bin robots run amok in Britain June 16, 2005 From: Agence France-Presse or:,10117,15630877-13762,00.html A COSTLY British art project involving moving litter bins and benches was shut down within hours after an embarrassing series of smash-ups. The 110,000 ($261,000) display in Cambridge, eastern England, was meant to see the robotic solar-powered bins keep roaming outside the Junction music venue in the city, The Daily Telegraph reported. But despite being fitted with sensors designed to prevent crashes, the bins and benches lasted just three hours before being recaptured after running amok and repeatedly slamming into everything in the vicinity. "On the launch day they were showing signs of some anti-social behaviour and kept on being intimate with the bike racks and with each other," said Gordon Glass, spokesman for the Junction. "The artists felt there was no other option but to take them away." "

"Why didn't they also fit the bins and benches with the most recent precognition software, like the Happy Vertical People Transporters (also produced by the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation), which would allow them to be on the exact spot you want to relax, before you know you want it! This would also prevent them from crashing into each other, as they would know where not to go. Just my 10 cents..."
