    • Very interesting Mellie, and extremely well argued, but I am still in agreement with Douglas Adams answer of "42".

      The real question is "where did all the dolphins go shortly before the earth was destroyed?"

      Janis,

       

      Look at the very bottom of my post, or click on the "more" in Recent Forum Topics for this thread (took me multiple tries to get that one to work.)

       

      Alice,

       

      You're right!

       

      Best, Mellie

    • Lovely! 

       

      Just time for a quick bath is there perhaps?  And what's this about this wheel thingy?

      err, not spoken about in polite company, and don't stare...(Marvin the Paranoid Android excepted, of course.)

      I have been moved to re-read the trilogy (in 5 parts). I had forgotten so many brilliant characters - the Vogon Captain who reads his poetry as a punishment, Agrajag (who Arthur keeps accidentally killing), Wowbagger the infinitley prolonged, who goes around insulting the entire population of the universe in alphabetical order, Gargravarr, who is having a trial seperation from his body, Hotblack Desiato, who is spending the year dead for tax reasons, The Rain God ("it wasnt raining yesterday" "it was in Doncaster"), the sperm whale accidentally brought into existance a few hundred miles above the planet Margrathea.


      And the entries in the book - who can argue against the logic that the universe does actually have a population of zero?


      Quite brilliant. Sadly Douglas Adams was taken from us much too young.

      The answer itself, while important, is not the main issue.  The real problem is determining the question itself.  Since the Earth will be destroyed shortly before the question can be determined, we are left with only one half of the equation.
