Because they were using a computer to try to find out the answer to the universe. But is symbolizes the way we use science today to figure out the "answers", like physics. Whatever the answer is to life, the universe, and everything in it, it's not going to be so as straight foward. Also, the big brain computer answered that question only to find out she didn't understand the question, which is why she built the 10 billion year old program called "earth" to computer the answer. HAHA

Dude, you won't be dissapoint when you read the whole series. They actually go back to the "42" in like the 4th book i think.

For some reason the number 42 has always been my favorite and I have never known why, it just popped into my head as a child... :shrug:

That's why the rest of the series is about the search for the ultimate question.

I'd just like to say whoever was responsible for the script of that that horrible fucking Hollywood movie after Douglas died will be the first ones up against the wall when the revelation comes.

The second book in the series(The Restaurant At the End of the Universe) was kinda boring and uneventful so I stopped reading it halfway through.  I'll pick it up again reread the first book and commit myself sometime.

If you're looking for the rest of the series I've seen them all over second hand book stores for real cheap.

The second book is brilliant, and the movie was genius.

adams has some part in the script before he died. After he died though is when they started production or something like that :shrug:
i wish the movie was closer to the book because i really liked the actors and everthing. i thought marvin was hilarious. The BBC series though, was good and alot closer to the book, but just didnt like how old it was.

I liked the movie, but just a little bit more than "that was alright", so I have to admit it kind of turned me off getting into the series. Maybe I should dive in.
