For those who have failed to read the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy a little information about the Total Perspective Vortex is required. It's in context here.
The relevant quote is this one:
"To Trin Tragula’s horror, the shock completely annihilated her [his wife's] brain; but to his satisfaction he realized that he had proved conclusively that if life is going to exist in a Universe of this size, then the one thing it cannot have is a sense of proportion"
I hate to mention anyone with an annihilated brain after mentioning poor Dr Stanton, but here is the key quote from Dr T Colon Campbell (none of the rest is worth reading):
"In summary, Denise’s critique lacks a sense of proportionality."
Phew, just as well, we need Denise with a non annihilated brain to crunch numbers for us.
But the implication, unstated, is that Dr Colon has a sense of proportionality.
Explains a lot really.
BTW Zaphod eats the cake. There, ruined the series for you!
