Default @SakuraLani re:longer puzzles

There is one very long puzzle by Douglas Adams that I have the record for at some ridiculously quick time. It's because it's my favorite sentence in the book "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy". While sometimes puzzles do "click", and you just get them, it also helps if you know the passage by heart and recognize it quickly. Eventually, you will see something here that you know from another source. You will solve that much faster than you would have if you had never seen it before.

As for solves under 10 seconds, some of us just type really fast. I actually have to type slower than I'm able because the program sometimes skips letters if I type more than about 70 wpm. Maybe it's my browser, because Bansai hasn't had that problem and he can type faster than I can.
