Hitchhiker's Guide: Towels - Douglas Adams

This quote was added by user974278
A towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly 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; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a mini-raft down the slow heavy River Moth, and wet it for use in hand-to-hand combat.

But of course the most important use is as a defense against the bugblatter beast of Trall, a beast which is so stupid that it thinks if you can't see it, then it can't see you. So, should you encounter such a beast, you can, by throwing the towel over your eyes, easily make an escape from this dense and dangerous creature.
