Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

It's a litmus test for how many lame-o's there are here.
The use of the word "Fred" in a derogatory fashion is another one.

Because "42" is the universally perfect answer, and we'll always fall short of it.

Because according to Douglas Adams, 42 is the answer, and this forum just isn't up to it.

I wondered the same thing. Then looked at the URL. Then looked at the number of times people dropped it with such jaded aplomb.
Then I got depressed, logged off and started doing metric centuries to the dive bar to guzzle away the thoughts of this place.
