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?
So say we all.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be in my bunk with these charming ladies.
