The meaning of life is infact 42.

You're probably wondering why the meaning of life is just a number.

I won't explain to you this, but i'll tell you one thing.

To understand the answer, you must first understand the question.
{"Cave man" lays out following sentence in Scrabble stones: "What do you get if you multiply six by nine?")
Arthur: Six by nine? Forty-two? You know, I've always felt that there was something fundamentally wrong with the Universe.
(Faint and distant voice:) Base thirteen!
