Re: What do you get if you multiply 6 by 9?

Sheesh, youse are all a hard audience on a Friday night, @jonsie , @Cleoriff , @Mi-Amigo  LOL

 

“You know,” said Arthur, “it’s at times like this, when I’m trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space that I really wish I’d listened to what my mother told me when I was young.”


“Why, what did she tell you?”


“I don’t know, I didn’t listen.”

 

Sheesh...Thanks!

I always thought something was fundamentally wrong with the universe.

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:


I must be getting tired...LOL

Ergo:

"The chances of finding out what’s really going on in the universe are so remote, the only thing to do is hang the sense of it and keep yourself occupied."
