Today’s not just any old Sunday on the planet Earth. Today is October 10, 2010 or 10 October 2010. Either way you cut it, you get 101010, which translated from binary is 42… which is the number that the great grand computer Deep Thought calculated as being the answer to life, the universe and everything. Discuss.
