# Today (10/10/10) Is the Most Important Day In the History of Humanity – #42day

You might not be aware of this yet, but the moment this blog entry was posted (10/10/10 – EST time), the most important day in the history of humanity began. Why? Because today, Planet Earth will finally (I hope!) reveal the answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything.

For those of you not in the know, Planet Earth was originally created by a computer named Deep Thought, who after being unable to respond to the ultimate question itself, built our planet as a super-computer to calculate the answer. Now Deep Thought worked on that answer for seven and a half million years, but all he could come up with was one number: 42.

42? What could that number mean? Well geeks, we’ll probably get the response we’ve all been waiting for today!

October 10, 2010 = 10/10/10

101010 (in Binary) = 42

If you think about it, today is the only day for the next century that when transformed into binary can be interpreted as number 42. That must mean something right?

Now folks, let’s all pray REALLY HARD that a bunch of Vogons don’t warp out of Hyperspeed in front of our beloved home to create a hyperspace bypass.

So say we all.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be in my bunk with these charming ladies.

yeah…….. except when it happens again October 10, 3010….. and 4010…….and 5010………

• or when it happens again Oct. 10, 2110…. and 2210….and 2310…..

Read the article next time and you will notice it said "for the next century". OP is not claiming that this is the one and only.

101010 is binary.. there's no 3, 4, or 5 in binary…

• Shaql says:

riight… and there's no 2 in binary, correct? so Oct. 10, 2010 is also not similar to Oct. 10, 2010 ?
nah, wait, I think I misunderstood something in your post, Nada xD

And it happened before… also, dates were created by humans, not by that computer god thingy, maybe real 10/10/10 hasn't arrived yet (or happenede with all the dinosaur guys)

• Spicymeatballforya says:

It's a reference to a popular science fiction book. I say book because my rabid agnosticism disallows me to say that it's not entirely true. But it's the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Man, you "geeks" sure are squares sometimes.

• Spicymeatballforya says:

Oops i replied to th wrong thread :( sorry!

• Dmontilla88 says:

It's the most important book in history. (Even moreso than Encyclopedia Galactica)

And the only other problem is that Earth was designed to find out the ultimate question, which because of a flaw in the program turns out to be "What do you get if you multiply six by nine?" which isn't 42 at all.

• Yes it is.
6 x 9 = 42 (base 13)
Sheesh, I worked that our 18 years ago, and thought the meme had spread to everyone.
Think of a deck of cards with two jokers.

well but i dont think deep thought count from the birth of a pin uped jew, it would rather count from the creation of it self. some one has to hack deep thought and pass comand uptime to get th(i straigt.

5. Twer_Mallow says:

So, the answer to the world and everything is Ubuntu?

6. Planet Earth was created to calculate the question not the answer

7. M says:

Helloo Ppl Its the XXX 10/10/10 and its My BirthDay , :) Hoo Laa laaaaaaa Yeaaaaahhhh

8. Markpark10 says:

what's the big deal with 42??? So tomorrow is 46, then what?

9. Nitro says:

Linking to a pic of two girls kissing…oooh, how terribly clever and exciting.

/sarcasm

deep thought built the earth to find the question that led to the answer 42 in the HGTTG books

See. This isn't true because those aliens that looked like humans were dumped on earth when it was just a baby and the real humans were barely cavemen (they didn't live in caves but we descendants of those aliens, you know, the hair stylists and telephone cleaners, can't really change ourselves into a more evolved, intellectual race and therefore, we will continue to call them cavemen.) So you see, by interrupting the divine process, any answer or question we get will be warped and unrecognizable.

that's some crazy stuff!

What a load of crap!!! There was also a 9/9/9 and there will be an 11/11/11 are those mystical magical loads of crap too?!?!

• Oh Madmux, you so retarded.

Now go read The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, and you understand the awesomess of that blogpost.

14. No, it was Deep Thought who made Earth, so it could find the question to the answer.

15. Niklbyrd says:

Deep Thought technology like from the Xfiles?

16. Phil E. Drifter says:

October 10, 2010 = 10/10/2010

17. Hold on Plus we have a Really bad Calendar .

Mayans have record Historical Years more than us so they have a better system, unlike out actual calendar.

18. Please don't ruin The Hitchhiker's Guide by making every possible joke about 42.

how about only the good ones? " 'it's uncomfortably like being drunk.' 'what's so wrong with being drunk?' 'go ask a glass of water.' "
