I'm 42 today. Which is a very geeky birthday. Because 42 is THE ANSWER. To Life. The Universe. Everything.
To get this, you have to have read Douglas Adams' "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" series (which everyone should read.) You see, an alien civilization built a super computer to tell them the answer to life, the universe, and everything. The computer took thousands of years to ponder, until finally coming up with the answer "42." (The people were not satisfied with this answer, and the computer told them they should have asked the question better.)
So I'm going out to have a very geeky birthday. More on that tomorrow.
