The Ultimate Answer by Richard Tornello

Garbage in, garbage out. Don't panic though. The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything is actually 42. Now, since that's out of the way, I'm sure you're wondering what the Ultimate Question is that would produce such a number. Unfortunately, I don't think it's possible to know the Ultimate Answer and the Ultimate Question without the universe imploding. Forgive us, Douglas Adams.

Poetry about hard science makes me swoon! :lol:

Thanks Eddie.

I find that science fact can be stranger than most fiction, and the fact, that is in fact...fact, is in itself mind blowing.

I agree.

Before the big bang, someone bought it a couple of drinks!

Sorry Eddie, but that one went over my head.

However to add another point to all this, if you look into Hindu cosmology, you'll there is a similar and parallel belief; the end result is something else all together.
