I don't know if this is a big phenomena internationally, but in Sweden, a lot of people seem to think that the meaning of life is 42. (The answer to the Question about Life, The Universe and Everything in The Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy)

Now, they've got that the answer is 42... But where the hell do they get the meaning of life from?

The thing is that the answer is useless without the question, and noone knows the question. Didn't these people read the book? When did they draw the conclusion that the question was talking about the meaning of life?
Personally, I don't think that a question that spans across everything in the universe and beyond would focus on our pathetic little existence. We're part of it, but what the hell.
Just listen to it:

"What is the meaning of life?"
"42."

IT DOESN'T WORK LIKE THAT! IT MAKES NO SENSE!

They're all idiots.

This thread explains what is life .

I think you're missing the point. It's a dismissive answer, but it's not rude like saying "Shut the f*ck up".

Like me, I'd tell you to shut the f*ck up. But I'm an assh*le.

It'd go exactly like this:

You: So, mandude what do you think the meaning of life is?

Me: We're all going to f*cking die, shut the f*ck up you moron. Also, quit saying mandude, that's retarded.

But most people don't have that kind of verbal skill. So they just say 42, hoping that you'll laugh it off and shut the f*ck up, and most importantly, quit saying mandude.

People actually say mandude? It's not something you made up? Wow, those are the real idiots here!

The first person I ever heard mention it was you, when you asked about the meaning of life.

'How many times do you need have sex in a year to live a happy life'

i believe if you have to ask someone what the meaning of life is, you have no life of your own. The meaning of life is different for everyone. The same goes with the question "Why are we here?" It drives me crazy when people ask questions like that, because my meaning of life is different from theirs

Well put rant.

Kepi always has the best rantings, I think.

I agree.

Also this thread totally lost me.

Watching Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy in its entirety would be my idea of hell.

I wouldn't know. I've never seen it. I tend to shun things that get so much ridiculous attention like that. You know, the kind that end up being quoted ad nauseum.
I felt the same way about Napoleon Dynamite.
12 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 4/19/09 - 5:16:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
Omg, David used to drive me insane with this "42" poo...its f*cking retarded. And that movie...yeah, I watched it...not so great.
12 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 4/19/09 - 5:17:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sorry...sh*t.

That movie was popular? I never saw it.

Does anyone realize it's a book?

That's what I was thinking.
12 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 4/19/09 - 5:32:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not the kind of book I think I'd even pay attention to. That said, you know what the best feeling is? Walking into the book store. Miles and miles and miles of books! And it just smells so good in there. I could easily get lost in there for hours. Days, if they'd let me.
12 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 4/19/09 - 5:38:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd say you're missing out, but it's not everyone's bag, that's for damn sure.

Book stores are generally quite cozy places, although it's been a really long time since I've actually been into one.
12 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 4/19/09 - 6:07:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
Actually the books were quite entertaining, honestly enough. In the Vonnegut-Dick-Adams triumvirate of cynically hopeful sci-fi, they were admittedly the worst... But they were still awesome.

And actually the best bit on that was God's parting words to creation: "Sorry for All the Inconvenience".
