Introduction
Welcome to the Google+ home of h2g2 - The Guide to Life, the Universe and Everything.

Launched way back in 1999 by Douglas Adams, h2g2 is a user-generated encyclopedia with a simple remit. To guide our users through the intricacies of modern life. Everything from brewing the perfect cup of tea to the formation of the universe itself is covered within - all created by our community of enthusiastic and supportive writers.

We've been working on The Guide for over a decade, and have hundreds of thousands of entries available. All of which are completely and utterly accurate:

"The Guide is definitive. Reality is frequently inaccurate." 
Douglas Adams

So wherever you are, and whatever you need to know, visit h2g2.com and find out what The Guide has to say.
