42

Did you know?!
  • 42 is The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything
  • The angle in degrees for which a rainbow appears.
  • The first book to be printed with movable type, the Gutenberg Bible, is also known as the '42-line Bible', after the number of lines of print on each page.
  • "42" is one of the tracks on Coldplay's 2008 album Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends.
  • 42 is one of The Numbers - 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, and 42 - featured in Lost.
  • In the television series and movie The X-Files, lead character Fox Mulder lives in apartment number 42
  • In an episode of "House M.D" Dr. House claims that his favorite number is 42.
  • 42 is the name of Buzz Lightyear's space ship from Pixar's animated science fiction series Buzz Lightyear of Star Command.
  • 101010 (42 in Binary) is an open-source Java game.
  • 42 is the result given by the web search engines Google and Wolfram Alpha when the query "the answer to life the universe and everything" is entered as a search.
  • Douglas Adams answer to "42" - " The answer to this is very simple. It was a joke. It had to be a number, an ordinary, smallish number, and I chose that one. Binary representations, base thirteen, Tibetan monks are all complete nonsense. I sat at my desk, stared into the garden and thought '42 will do.' I typed it out. End of story."

But my pastor revealed something to us yesterday. In Ecclesiastes 10:19, it says "A feast is made for laughter, and wine makes life merry, but money is the answer for everything."

I think the Bible's version definitely trumps 42.
