    OMG! :mental:

    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! :laugh2:

    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? :unsure:

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