So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish

The message left by the dolphins when they departed Planet Earth just before it was demolished to make way for a hyperspace bypass. (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy "trilogy" written by Douglas Adams)

Also the message left by me as I leave the Athena group and finally fall below 200 pounds! I should have said Thanks for All the Help and Support from this group. I'll be back and visit and hopefully contribute when I can.

Bye!

congrats. now go and figure out the question to which 42 is the answer, and get back to us once you've figured it out. (i've always held that the question is "what is six times nine", but none of my friends will agree with me on that point.)

Athenas are > 140, not > 200.

Sorry to disappoint you! But congratulations anyway.

If you meant Clyde then I take it back.

I seem to remember a comment at some point from Arthur along the lines of "I've always felt there was something fundamentally wrong with the Universe," and that's why I believe you're right: The Ultimate Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything is, in fact, "what do you get when you multiply 6 by 9?"

Then again, 42 could be the age I wish I were!

It also explains why God's last message to the universe is "Sorry for the inconvenience".

Speaking of the guide series, did anyone read the sixth book that came out by a different author in the last year or so?

6 x 9 = 42.

It's true!

If it's by a different author, it's not a 6th book. It's fanfic, something written by someone else using the original characters/concepts.

Yeah, but based on Adam's notes and plans after he died with the blessing of his family. Maybe not cannon, but definitely a stronger pedigree than fanfic.
