They couldn't do it on their own! They had enough trouble raising you to do their bidding. I like the username. The meaning of life is...42!
Not quite #1. 42 is the Ultimate Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything, but since the question is not 'what is the meaning of life', but rather "What do you get if you multiply six by nine"?, 42 is not the meaning of life. The reference is well placed and clever, so we'll let this one go, this time.
ArtIsResistance7 - it's all good dude. Adams was quite fond of changing details every time he redid the story - radio play series, books, etc.. so it's quite possible that the writers of the movie also did that, I don't recall the movie well enough to say. Though it is more likely that they left out most of the story as it is really in one of the other books. For interests sake, and because I'm a dork, an other possible question to the answer is 'how many roads must a man walk down, before you can call him a man?'. Though that really was just so the mice would have something to talk about when they went on the talk show circuit. :P
lol! Quite right and when it comes to genetics I would think the egg would come first as well, since it would be the combination of 2 different creatures or a series of genetic modifications based on survival that would have created that first chicken as an end result. So you are right, the egg came first, imo.
Thank you polico_wolf. UrinatingShrimp is obviously not familiar with that book, nor was able to infer that the topic was from a book (or movie) and therefore not a result of poor math skills. And for the record, if you were to use a base 13 system, 6*9 would, in fact, equal 42.
Oh noes!! Your parents wanted their only child to have a sibling! Your life is sooo awful!!! Get over yourself OP.
I'm a stoner and will say that I suck at rolling doobies. I used to be really good at it, but now I primarily use my bong because it smells less, uses less weed and gets me higher for longer. Stoners don't get bongs because they can't roll - it's that they can't roll because they're out of practice because of their bong
