    OMG!

    My entire life has been built on the premise of '42'. Now, I'm going to have to subtract 5 from it. I'm probably doomed!

    I hope my DW will still like me!

    I read in Wikipedia the other day that 6 x 9 actually is 42 in base 13 - what kind of mind sits down and works that out?

    I suppose the same kind that reads up about it in Wikipedia right?
