Woah, October 10, 2010

Today I had a mind blowing realisation that any geek would appreciate. Not sure if its well known but it soon will be. The number 42, which in case you didn't know, is the answer to everything, the universe and life, referring to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (see here).

Next year, October 10, 2010 will be here and it can be written as 10/10/10. Or removing the slashes, 101010 which converting from binary to decimal form is 42. Woah. Yeah, woah. Will the answer to life appear on October 10, 2010. I dont know, but someone will make mad money making t-shirts.

I think the meaning will come from the web comic xkcd.com. In case you did not know, the ordinal values of xkcd add up to 42.

Get your tinfoil hat ready.
