Your vitals soar.


Aeons ago, across the wastes of space, and time, programmers built a supercomputer known as "deep thought" to calculate the meaning of Life, The Universe, And Everything.

After 7 million years of calculation, the answer turned out to be "42."

A new computer, Earth, was built and designed to figure out the question to the answer, 42. Given that this is where we are, and we are theoretically several billion monkeys connected to typewriters, I think we may be able to figure this out.

Feel free to post philosophy, science, religion, voodoo, math, and jokes to corroborate discussion. Its like, the vague pilliared arena where socrates and all his egghead friends are discussing poo poo. But, sometimes a man with a motorcycle helmet and a chain rides through and gets ya. This is possibly relevant. What's the Question?

This is close, the actual question is "What do you get if you multiply six by nine?"

"When shall we have lunch?"

By the actions of the Golgofrinchams we wound up with the wrong clock, though whether it was a corruption of the programming, sheer coincidence, or a great cosmic joke that the clock wound up with 24 hours has yet to be decided.

Bistromathics is the most powerful computational force known to parascience. A major step up from the Infinite Improbability Drive, Bistromathics is a way of understanding the behavior of numbers. Just as Einstein observed that time was not an absolute, but depended on the observer's movement through space, so it was realized that numbers are not absolute, but depend on the observer's movement in restaurants.

The first nonabsolute number is the number of people for whom the table is reserved. This will vary during the course of the first three telephone calls to the restaurant, and then bear no apparent relation to the number of people who actually turn up, or to the number of people who subsequently join them after the show/match/party/gig, or to the number of people who leave when they see who else has turned up.

The second nonabsolute number is the given time of arrival, which is now known to be one of those most bizarre of mathematical concepts, a recipriversexclusion, a number whose existence can only be defined as being anything other than itself. In other words, the given time of arrival is the one moment of time at which it is impossible that any member of the party will arrive. Recipriversexclusions now play a vital part in many branches of maths, including statistics and accountancy and also form the basic equations used to engineer the Somebody Else's Problem field.

The third and most mysterious piece of nonabsoluteness of all lies in the relationship between the number of items on the bill, the cost of each item, the number of people at the table and what they are each prepared to pay for. (The number of people who have actually brought any money is only a subphenomenon in this field.)

Numbers written on restaurant checks within the confines of restaurants do not follow the same mathematical laws as numbers written on any other pieces of paper in any other parts of the universe.

Like hell it is. I don't care how drunk or high you are, spending more than like $20 at Taco Bell is a recipe for untold pain. So is spending $20. Any amount really, but don't eat 42 tacos.

Maybe 42 cheesey fiesta potatoes. Those things are so good.
