While every interstellar traveler knows that the most massively useful item you can have with you is a towel, placing a Babelfish in your ear, where it can translate foreign languages for you, is a real close second on the must-have list of any spaceship-hopping hitchhiker on the go.
The CF BABELFISH is a little friend who will try to explain, translate and interpret CF-related Phenomena. It aims to bridge the gap between ‘things we say’ and ‘things we mean’.
*The real Babelfish is a creature in Douglas Adams’ intergalactic five volume trilogy “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” - “The Babel fish is small, yellow, leech-like, and probably the oddest thing in the Universe. It feeds on brainwave energy received not from its own carrier, but from those around it. The practical upshot of all this is that if you stick a Babel fish in your ear you can instantly understand anything said to you in any form of language. It is a universal translator that neatly crosses the language divide between any species.” The book points out that the Babel fish could not possibly have developed naturally, and therefore it both proves and disproves the existence of God.
