Extemporaneous Geek: 42

As geeks, we often find ourselves being excessively geeky at the oddest of moments. This was one of those moments.

So, I’m watching Stargate Universe (really good episode, btw) and Rush is talking to Daniel Jackson (who gained some weight between filming this and Supernatural) and the number 46 is coming up and Daniel (in Rush’s head) says “Well, it’s not the answer to life, the universe, and everything, because that’s 42.” So, I then complain to my husband that he made the classic Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy mistake: 42 is not the answer to life, the universe, and everything, it is the answer to the question of life, the universe, and everything. The important thing is: what is the question? That’s what makes Hitchhiker’s so complex.

Anyway, that is my geeky moment for the day. Enjoy. And if you haven’t read Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, do so. Now. Thank you!
