42

Recommended Posts

It's a randomly selected number made notorious by a crappy deceased writer.

It was the computer Deep Thought's answer to the question of Life, The Universe and Everything in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

 

Some people think that this means something because it was funny at the time.

And if you're going to assume any of that is true, then we never will - since the Earth was demolished to make way for a hyperspace bypass a couple of decades ago :(

Wasn't it the mice who thought 42 up for a chat show? I thought Deep Thought never got an answer, on account of the volgon fleet demolishing it.

Earth was the successor to Deep Thought, designed by the super computer to divine the question that led him to the answer 42.

We got the question. Whether it was the right question because of the arrival of the Golgafrinchams is another matter.

42 is the simple version of 86 (4*2 4+2)

also know as (area)51 (4+1 2-1)

 

 

 

P.S. I have no idea what you guy are talking about could you give me a link.

(typing 42 in google isn't really helping much ;)

You can only finish the game

 

if you've read the book.

 

Which makes the game a bit redundant really.

It's kinda freakish how numbers can appear where we least expect in our world...

 

Reminds me of things like the Fibonnaci Numbers

Live to be 42 and after that it's gravy. I was almost handsome as I am now when I was 42 and not quite as wise but if I'da stopped then my wife woulda had tons of life insurance and benefits. Now that I'm older my life insurance is cancelled.

42, I agree, Yah 42. But more is mo better.

I actually would like the top position at the British Observatory, and Institute of Physics, and be addressed by the name Mr. God, but I'm just humbly a man and so past 42, still capable of running a piece of crap like California. My campaign slogan, "But it's really great crap". I'll win by 42 votes.

What?

 

That Douglas Adams was a crap writer, or that he selected that number randomly?

 

Surely you can't want me to take back his deceasedness.

ROFL! thanks to that little gem, I`m now wearing half a cup of rather hot coffee :P

 

Maybe he`s just spending a Short while dead for Tax Reasons?
