One of the many things that stuck with me through all the incarnations of Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide series is Arthur's constant search for tea. A lot of people would argue, and possibly rightly so, that it was just Douglas poking fun at a very British trait. But I think that if after traveling literally to the end of the universe and back, he still only ever found a decent cup of tea on our little blue marble, then that alone is a pretty good reason to keep us from getting destroyed. Maybe it's not just British. Maybe a good cup of tea is the one thing us humans really got right.
