Google has answer to life, the universe and everything!

This is funny!

Do you know what is the answer to life, the universe and everything? No?

But Google has. :)

Go to and type in the search field,  "answer to life, the universe and everything", without quotes. The answer is ??? Check out yourselves.

The answer is not a philosophical book of 100 pages or anything. Its the Google calculator that calculates your answer. And the answer is very simple if you don't waste time thinking more about the answer. Now, why is that answer so funny?

Here goes the story: The whole concept is taken from Douglas Adam's fictional series "Hitchhiker's Guide To the Galaxy". The series was screened into a movie in 2005 by the same name. Researchers, passionate to know the answer to life, the universe and everything construct a super computer called "Deep Thought". Deep thought was questioned this and Deep thought computed for 7 and half million years before the quest ended. The computer provides this answer "Fourty-two". Deep Thought was pretty sure of its answer. To say anything more than this will be called spoiler to the book and movie. But why on the earth did Douglas select 42 of all the numbers? Its his story, his book and HIS CHOICE.
