  1. Well, heck, it’s no wonder that 42 is the answer to life, the universe, and everything, then!

    Very cool idea for a TT. I like it. 🙂

  2. Who knew? Well, I guess you did. Thanks for educating me.

    I think you will like Outlander. Only two people out of the 30 or so I have turned on to the book have not liked it.

  3. This is an amazing way to write a TT list and what incredible stats and answers, I was stunned. And a strange coincidence I jsut googled the number 42 the other day at wikipedia and the number 47…they are considered good luck numbers in tv and movies and that is why they appear all the time. Very mysterious huh?

    I love XFiles!!!!

    I wrote a list of questions for my TT this week. It’s like a “mini-survey” of things about art work and decor and I am very curious about art and it’s role or lack of in our lives.

    I hope you might find time or interest to drop by my blog and check it out. I really need a variety of peope for opinions and response. i also posted quite a few pictures…so I even hope it is a fun little set of questions.

    Great TT

  4. OMG, I was just thinking about Hitchhikers. My dad bought it (I have yet to see it) and we were talking about the books not more than an hour ago.

    Great list!

    “Goodbye and thanks for all the fish!” 😉
