Actually OM, 42 was a reference from Douglas Adams' Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, where a sub story about these people who made the worlds most sophisticated computer gave questions to it about ultimate truth and so forth, it computed for many years and then it said it was ready to give the final answer, people waiting with baited breaths, the answer: 42. Puzzled looks all about.....

Will anyone ever surpass the concision of T.S. Eliot's summation of life on planet earth... "Birth, and copulation and death"?


......................................


Note: "Birth, and copulation, and death.
That's all the facts when you come to brass tacks:
Birth, copulation, and death.
I've been born, and once is enough."

(from T.S. Eliot's Sweeney Agonistes"
