Forty Two - The Answer To Life, The Universe And Everything

Forty two. It's the answer to life, the universe and everything. According to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, at least. I've read all five books in the increasingly inaccurately named trilogy that is The Guide.

Mankind wanted to know the answer to the ultimate question - "What is the answer to life, the universe and everything?" Deep Thought, a large computer, thought about it for 7.5 million years and the answer was "42". Deep Thought pointed out that the question was, in fact, wrong.

Forty two is also how hot it was yesterday in Perth. And we are now in Autumn. And it is the forecast temperature for today. Bloody cyclone conditions up in the north of the state are making the weather pattern not change a lot down south and causing the extreme temperatures.
