The great answer, 42, was found by the mice, yet they did not know the question. I believe the question is:
"How many billions of people must die before man realizes his great mistake?"
This is my belief. I do not yet know the great mistake, but I think once 42 billion have died due to the mistake it will become known.
"Dude, I know the answer but whats The Question?"
"How many billions of people must die before man realizes his great mistake!"
"forty two!"

A legend passed down from generation to generation... some say it's a myth, others cannot phathom the possibility of it's existance, nonetheless in any situation, drunk or sober, when a male approaches an intellectual convo and just happens to pop in, oh so nonchalant... "do you shave?," and then proceeds to resume conversation as if the question was never uttered.
"How about the Bears game... I think they have a chance at winning the Super Bowl, by the way, do you shave?" (Pause for comprehension)" you think they have a chance?"
