No longer "the answer" in years of age

[ #21953 ]
At 5:55am this morning, I finished my 43rd year on the planet. No longer can I answer the answer for my age. {sigh}

  • Happy Birthday, dude. :)

    It is nice to have those memorable numbers for your age (I'm on the nice round 30, myself). Age in years, though, is really insignificant compared to how you are at this point in your life. Make now your age and live it up and don't look back, wishing you were age X again. Because 10 years from now, you'll be wishing you were 42 again. ;)
  • I myself regret that I didn't get more opportunities to use the canonical line when I was 37.

  • Happy birthday. :)

    You are what you think.
  • Look on the bright side, it's several more years until you turn 0x30. (Somewhat fewer for me.)

    # I had a sig when sigs were cool
    use Sig;
    • There are repeated sophmoric suggestions, of unknown canonicalness, that the answer '42' was in base 13, as it was the obscene product 6*9=54=52+2. So in a few years we'll all be 42 13 again, sooner than in Base 16. (Of course duodecimal 42 12 comes a bit sooner still.)
