No! Read back earlier in the thread. 42 was debated, and so was 8. Then, we got into the FSM matrix, and 42 in base 8 = 52, and... oh, just look up a few posts!

52 is over-rated. I don't know why you like 52 or 8.

I like the matrix, though.

52 and 77 both appear in the matrix. 8 on its side represents the two meatballs, and it was heavily debated at the beginning of this thread between 42 and 8. 42 in base 8 is 52. The matrix also contains 52. Coincidence? I think not.

I like your icon. And I sort of like the Matrix too. Or at least I like matrices in general:
the general m x n matrix wrote:a11 a12 a13 ... a1n
a
21 a22 a23 ... a2n
a
31 a32 a33 ... a3n
. . . . .
. . . . .
. . . . .
a
m1 am2 am3 ... amn


But, about "42". It's just been done so many times. I mean, fifteen years ago, I thought it was neat, but come on--let's get some new blood in here. So yay 52, yay 48, yay 8, et. al. And 42 too, but not by itself.

42???? The Great Answer to Life the Universe and Everything?

Read back a few pages, and see how 42 evolved into 52 and 77.

Well, at least it has a parachute. We would not want that cow to get hurt.

"Furry cows moo and decompress"? I didn't know they were compressed in the first place.

It's so that you can get more "moo" for your "cow" (Why did I put "cow" in ""?)

Oh, more cow, less volume. Whatever, then!

Why doth the lone cow explosively decompress? I dunno. Ask the cow. Maybe it was something it ate. 8)
