42

42

The answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything is 42. It only took Deep Thought 7½ million years to figure out that. Anyone who has read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy knows that. I was a big fan of Douglas Adams, so when I saw the number forty-two on a rail-road switch sign in Jordbro yesterday I had to stop for a photo.

All that's missing is a towel! Wonderful!!

That's one I've heard of but never read. Looks like you still have plenty of the white stuff there.

Steffe said...

No worries Buck. I have the towel theme covered.

That's a railroad sign? What were you on, a sled? Sheesh! Haven't seen that much snow since I lived in Minnesota!

I always like anything with a 42 as well. It's like a funny inside joke. :D

Not sure why I said that it was a sign, it's the actual switch of course. The rail-track here goes to an industrial park and is seldom used these days.

AB said...

Is there another snowy stone with question on, too?

Great Adams memento! Beware of Vogons, even more if they're poets...
But, always: don't panic!

I had a feeling VP would like this one. It's a great shot, Doug Adams or not.
