    What is the meaning of life?

    Just wondering. I figure here is as good a place to ask as anywhere else.

    Life is just what it is... Any meaning you get out of it is up to you!

    Oh well, that's me just about screwed then. Breeding is one thing definitely not among my life's objectives.

    Meaninglessness is kind of liberating, really.

    His wife had left him long ago for someone without skin.
    And now he placed the mirror and he saw a double chin.
    He was having trouble and he'd had it for awhile.
    His doctor died a year ago. She was his only child.

    Some may say that's the purpose of life... but meaning is subjective and up for interpretation?

    The Galaxy Song - More from "Monty Python"

    Whenever life gets you down, Mrs Brown, and things seem hard or tough,
    And people are stupid, obnoxious, or daft, and you feel that you've had quite enou-huh-huh-huh-huh-hooooooough...
    Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving, revolving at 900 miles an hour.
    It's orbiting at 19 miles a second, so it's reckoned, The Sun, which is the source of all our power.
    The Sun, and you and me, and all the stars that you can see, are moving at a million miles a day
    In the outer-spiral arm, at 40,000 miles an hour, of the Galaxy we call "The Milky Way".
    Our Galaxy itself contains a hundred-billion stars, it's a hundred thousand light years side to side.
    It bulges in the middle, 16,000 light years thick, but out by us, it's just 3,000 light years wide.
    We're 30,000 light years from Galactic Central Point, we go round every 200 million years,
    And our Galaxy is only one of millions of billions in the amazing and expanding universe!
    The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding in all of the directions it can whizz,
    As fast as it can go, the speed of light, you know, 12 million miles a minute and that's the fastest speed there is,


    So remember when you're feeling very small and insecure, how amazingly unlikely is your birth
    And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space, 'cause there's bugger all down here on Earth!

    Yes, the answer is forty-two, but without knowing the actual question, one cannot hope to understand the meaning of the answer.

    Exactly. The answer is 42. If you disagree, then you obviously don't truly understand the question.

    Perhaps, but the person with all the batteries is sitting around the corner snickering quietly.

    To be happy. That's all that anyone ever really wants, it's just that they find it in different places.

    The meaning of life? I don't know, but I believe it involves good cheese.
