Ah, but of course! Random facts about the number 42:
1. It was my first basketball number (I do not claim to be the answer to life, the universe, everything, or ANYTHING...).
2. It was my favorite number prior to reading Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (and continues to be my favorite number).
3. In said book, this is the answer to the life, the universe, and everything. But you knew that already...
4. At the beginning of Matthew, Jesus is person number 42 in the genealogy. Yes, 42 is actually the biblical answer to the question of the life, the universe, and everything. 42=Jesus, of course. Bet you didn't know that one. :)

In fact I was unaware of all but #3... though come to think of it I'm pretty sure I'd heard something or other along the lines of #4, which I did particularly enjoy here. :P
