Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from The Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything)
42 is the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and EverythingThe Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything is numeric in Douglas Adams' series The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. In the story, a "simple answer" to The Ultimate Question is requested from the computer Deep Thought, specially built for this purpose. It takes Deep Thought 7˝ million years to compute and check the answer, which turns out to be 42. Unfortunately, The Ultimate Question itself is unknown, suggesting on an allegorical level that it is more important to ask the right questions than to seek definite answers.

After that power brunch we had yesterday I just thought I'd send you a memo and let you know that I've talked with the other executives here at FOX and we've decided to give your little space western idea another chance. However, and I'm sure you'll understand why, we ask for a few simple adjustments to your marvelous show idea before we can continue.
We need to have things blow up more often. Something should blow up at least once in between every commercial break. Two or three things blowing up in between each commercial break would be even better.
The women on the show should kiss the men on the show more often, and each other just a little less (as in, not at all).
The name "Firefly" doesn't seem to properly convey the idea of a space western. We recommend you rename the show "Space Western" so that the viewers don't confuse your show with a PBS documentary about fluorescent beetles.
The focus groups who reported to my assistant after viewing one of your episodes said they didn't really understand who the bad guys were. We recommend you have all the good guys on the show wear white hats and all the bad guys wear black hats, so the viewers are better able to keep track at a glance just who they're supposed to be rooting for.
We recommend you add a new character to the show. A cute little girl. Focus groups respond best to dark haired girls who are about nine or ten years old. We know this is a science fiction program so we recommend you make her a robot who speaks in a monotone manner and takes anything other characters say very literally, to comical effect.
The women on the show are wearing too many clothes.
You put the show in outer space but I don't recall there ever being any actual aliens showing up. So we recommend you get some of your makeup guys from the Buffy tv show and have them doctor up some extras to make them look like Little Green Men or something. Also make sure they're wearing black hats.
Drop that Ron Glass guy. He's a bore.
Focus groups reported that the rooms inside the spaceship looked too much like a poorly furnished studio apartment. We recommend you repaint all the sets to make them look more like those cool sets on that old Star Trek show. Make sure there's a lot of bright flashing lights and "beep beep" noises in the background.
The women on the show need to be prettier. Go wherever you got that cute Gellar chick and hire some more who look like that.
Get in touch with the Jim Henson Company and add some aliens that are actually muppets. Kids like muppets. You can't go wrong with muppets. Or maybe get that guy who does ALF. He's been doing some phone commercials recently, but I'm sure he's available. Make ALF a guest star every few episodes and maybe we can get the 1-800-COLLECT guys to put a commercial on your show.
Make the 'future' of the Earth a little brighter. People wanna believe we're gonna do better. Right now the show's outlook is just a little depressing.
Of course you'll understand that we will not be offering any more money for these changes. In fact in order to broadcast your fine television show on our network, we ask for a simple retainer of $250,000.00 per episode, to defray the costs regarding a lack of interest among advertisers.
We look forward to working with you again.

Good genes. Good product.
And why cam't we all just get along?

are motivated by the desire to be helpful and thus indispensable.
identify themselves by their accomplishments.
always compare themselves to others and may tend to become melancholy when they feel their lives don't measure up.

like to get involved in a variety of different, fun, and exciting activities and will quickly move on to the next event of interest when the first becomes too bogged down in detail.
are very concerned with justice and fairness and tend to take charge of situations and side with the underdog.
Mediators are peacemakers and avoid confrontation and conflict by adopting or going along with other people's agendas.
And why the sky is blue?
Why Is The Sky Blue is a funny website of scientific mis-information not to be taken too seriously and probably not even enlightening to most who venture on. The question, Why is the sky blue is one of the most often asked question by youngsters and oldster alike. This funny earth science site answers the question - why is the sky blue - in a light-hearted manner plus it attempts to answer many other often asked science questions in a somewhat similar manner as well. If you want to find out why the sky is blue, then click this link why is the sky blue and we will tell you! So you don't wish to click the link and find out the answer, do you? Well, then, we have a hint for your question, why is the sky blue: collision. Now doesn't this hint make your mouth water?
Funny you should ask, this blue sky is science's way of saying, "How did this happen?" Earth science may not have all the answers yet, but we do!
Aren't you feeling taunted enough to click the link? Why is the sky blue? Because it is feeling sad that humans don't last forever. Because yellow is already taken by that nimrod, the sun. Because it never gets to play in any of the reindeer games. Not the answer you were looking for was it? Now click the link. Please ...
Mis-information is at the heart of all of scientific inquiry. Plausible and implausible explanations need to be ruled out in order to understand what is really going on. Double-blind studies and other methods are good techniques that rule out mis-information. Once an explanation is ruled out it becomes fair game and fodder for sites like this to propound this information as if it were scientific fact. This site makes no apologies for dissemination of bogus facts, half-truths, shaky hypotheses and downright malicious lies, innuendo, tomfoolery and even shenanigans.
Science is not an exact science, someone once said. Okay, it was me. I said it. Be that as it may, the inexactness of science is what this website finds entertaining. Science can be art, you know. This is an earthy earth science site that contains little or no factual content whatsoever. What is informative about this? Whatsoever is the value in this, you ask? What is noteworthy is that science and those who participate in scientific endeavors many times take themselves way too seriously. Under the Shenanigan Theory of Relativity, science itself cannot be analyzed and taken apart and put underneath a microscope. Smirks cannot be synthesized into something useful. When is the last time you took a bunch of scientific ribaldry and analyzed the similarities in their DNA markers? A tumor has no humor. But we do, so read on and take whatever we say with a grain of salt because by the time you're done we will taste as salty as the ocean is blue.
And that's a fact, Jacques! Or Jacqueline as the case may be. But I am babbling, so goodbye. Okay, it's not goodbye as I have something more to say. Why Is The Sky Blue is not affiliated with any legitimate scientific organization whatsoever. In addition, if anyone makes such an accusation please inform us immediately so that our public relations people can do damage control.
