What do you get if you multiply 6 by 9?

[ Edited ]

I just had to share this, if only because it was in the FT and it's about one of my favourite literary works...

What do you get if you multiply six by nine?

"Six by nine. Forty two."
"That's it. That's all there is."
"I always thought something was fundamentally wrong with the universe"
...

Well as most people know, the “answer” to this question (in the Hitchhikers universe) is 42.

When Douglas Adams was asked whether he invented this question because six times nine is actually 54, which is 42 when written in base thirteen, he replied:
