3. In Hitchikers.. 42 is the meaning of life. Therefore, this tattoo is saying 69 is the answer to everything. Hey.. Makes sense. 😀

7. In “The Restaurant at the End of the Universe”, Arthur Dent attempts to discover the Question that leads to the answer “42″ by extracting it from his unconscious mind, through pulling Scrabble letters at random out of a sack. The result is the sentence “WHAT DO YOU GET IF YOU MULTIPLY SIX BY NINE.”

Actually, if you read the preface yourself, you’d know that while yes, the equation is correct in base 13, it was unplanned.

“nobody writes jokes in base 13 […] I may be a pretty sad person, but I don’t make jokes in base 13.”

25. Such a good book, and the BBC TV show is great. The new movie however was lacking.

That’s what you get when an American with no concept of British humour tries to Americanise good ol’ British humour.

31. I love the ship powered by the mathematical anomolies that occur when dividing a check in a restaraunt. I think that is such a funny concept.

unfortunately, people usually stare at me funny when I express that love…

37. Awwwwww… I clicked on it with the intention of pointing out the math is right in base 13 but someone already beat me to it. I may be a big geek but I guess I’m not the only one here.

41. #26 actually the screenplay was mostly written by Douglas Adams, he was VERY much involved until his death. He even wrote the part for John Malkovich, FOR him… Garth Jennings was the director, he’s british…

I love how people always try and compare movies to books, and then say the movie was bad because it wasn’t just like the book. It’s a movie, it’s gonna be different. I thought the movie was brilliant!

43. i thought the movie failed to capture much of the wackiness that the book contained. it followed the book step by step, but it omitted a lot of dialogue and narration that gave the book its charm.
