On the Answer to the Question...

... of life the universe and everything.

Once upon a time a race of hyper intelligence beings that grew sick and tired of the constant bickering about the meaning of life. So like any decent beings they decided to build a super computer and ask it. So once this computer is built and turned on, they ask it "Oh Deep Thought (because that's what they called it) Tell us to the question!" "Which Question?" Asked the computer. "The Ultimate question! We want the answer to life, the universe and everything!" "I'll have to think about that"
So for 3 and a half million years later Deep Though is done thinking. Everyone of the beings gather around so that they can finally settle the score. "I have the answer" Deep Thought Anounces, "But you aren't going to like it" "Tell us!" "The answer to the ultimate question, to life, the universe and everything is.....


"How can 42 be the answer?" "Well it's the answer to the ultimate question!" "Well tell us the question!" "... I don't know it"

Now if that sounded familiar, congratulations you are edumacted! If not well it's from Douglas Adams Hitch-hikers Guide to the Galaxy. This I hope will provide an explination to why I tend to answer questions with 42 even when it doesn't make sense. It's because 42 is the meaning of life. If you don't believe me Google "the answer to life the universe and everything"

I personally find it hilarious that we know the answer, but not the question. C'est la vie!
