42 = The Meaning of Life
Because if you add all the sides of a dice it equals 21, which is also half of 42. So 2 die go into 42, die being the plural of dice; Therefore the meaning of life equals 42 and 42 equals 2 die or 'to die'.

According to Biblical genealogies found in the gospels there are 42 generations between Abraham and Jesus. Christians contend that Jesus is the answer to 'the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything'.
42 could be considered an example of truth being stranger than fiction*.

*Or possibly just an interesting co-incidence.

A number that is the answer to life, universe and everything. For those of you haven't read the book or are to stupid to understand it the question is 6x7 the only reason Arthur Dent pulled out 6x9 is that he is spawn of the real humans who know the answer and question and the Golgfracins (I don't remember how to spell it) who don't know the answer or question.
Deep Thought: 42 is the answer.

Reader: 42? That's it? Wait, what's the question?

10 billion years later...

Deep Thought: the question is what is 6x7

Reader: Your saying I read this whole fucking book series to find out the question is fucking 6x7. You have to be fucking kidding me!

In addition to be the Ultimate answer to the ultimate question of the meaning of life, the universe and everything, it is also short hand to refer to 'Life, the Universe, and Everything.'
As in "How's your 42?" or "What's new in your 42?"
Or even "Never mind what my 20 is, where in the 42 are you?"
