Paradox of 42

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Anyone else notice just how frequently the number 42 shows up in movies, literature, advertising and just life in general? It was brought to my attention on "a long strange trip" and has haunted me ever since...

Flashback = getting your money's worth!

42 is the answer to life, the universe, and everything. We just don't know what the question is. Just ask Deepthought.

My folks visited me in Texas once. I was reading on of the five books in the trilogy: and laughing my butt off. They understand that I am a little weird, they raised me that way. :

I see the pattern developing.

5 (the fifth book) ... minus the 3 (trilogy) = 2 ... so there is the two!

Your folks visited you in Texas once ... hmmmmm ... minus five = 4 ..

There you have it .... 42!

But 42 of what?

I have to run into Princeton for gas at the Gulf station ..

Snowdog2112... seperate the Snowdog from the 2112... Split 2112 into 21 and 12... turn the 1 and the 2 around in the 12 and you get 21... Add the 21 to the original 21 and viola... 42:

I just bought a new motorcycle, and am calling it 42. It is truly the answer to life, the universe, and everything. And I pick up hitchers for galactic rides.

Only in base 13, so he's not allowed to answer yes/no questions.
