• Thank you for the question.

(Forgive me for my low level curiosity: "what is five book trilogy?"; and I never know how I am suppose to answer such questions, so I copy-pastes the entire question in google and ....man.... that question really exist on the internet (I thought it was some kind of stu... formation), well I chose the answer with the higher votes.):-)

PS you say "ice cream doesn't have bones", but...

Happy Easter everybody! 🙂

actually, 6*9 = 54.

6*7=42.

Douglas was never very mathematically inclined...

I think you may have missed the point...

"Six by nine. Forty two."

It did have a geek element to it - but I got my 7 points being a fan of Mr Adams' work

• 42 I had heard of, that quote from the books I had not. Out guessed myself on the geekness of the contributor, thought it was a double bluff.

6*7=42.

613 * 913 = 4213

But Adams hated that explanation. The Joke was that the useless people corrupted the computation and not only came up with the simplest question for 42, but got it wrong.

(Forgive me for my low level curiosity: "what is five book trilogy?";

It was a five book trilogy because it was originally a trilogy, and then he wrote two more books. When book four came out it was a joke that it was book 4 of the trilogy. Then books 5 and 6 made it a running gag.

Not to mention that with the official continuation by a new author, it is a six book trilogy.

• Actually, it's a trick question. As soon as the monkey picks up his foot to kick he falls over because he can't balance on his peg.

There are no facts, only interpretations.
Friedrich Nietzsche

• The answer to everything as usual is 42.

• Interesting that as of 11:00 AM Eastern, only 16% picked the first answer. I thought that if you have absolutely no idea of the answer to a multiple choice question, always pick the first one. 🙂
