    Somewhere, Douglas Adams is smiling, even as the Tesla heads towards Milliways with “Don’t Panic” on the nav screen, a copy of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy in the glove compartment, along with a towel!

    I wish I’d had teachers like that- – - and computers! We were still using slide rules and long division! I never saw a pocket calculator until I was 25.

    Doug Adams would be happy to know that you can only officially claim to be a nerd if when you hear “42” you think of the fiords that Snartybardfast built, the depressed robot, etc. If you think of math at all, you do not qualify for the esteemed title of “Nerd”.

    Funny, I read this then glanced over and it showed 42 comments and 42 likes. What are the odds. Must be the meaning of life.

    42 is the answer to everything, isn’t it. I learned that many years ago.

    True story: I fixed the Y2K problem in the open-source “to-do list” software xvtdl by adding 42 to an intermediate step in the day-of-the-week calculation.

    Sorry, Frazz. The answer is “47” – 42, adjusted for inflation.

    I know I’ve joked before about the classic “solution in search of a problem,” but it occurs that it’s not necessarily the worst approach — and indeed, an approach I use a lot when writing. Sometimes you let your characters talk until they set up something you can tidy up and tie off, but sometimes a punch line comes to you and you have to reverse-engineer the setup.

    I still can’t recommend it as a valid research, engineering or policy technique, but we writers get to clutch at anything that works. Because, you know, sometimes whatever works is all we’ve got.Frazz by Jef Mallett for Feb 9, 2018 |

    Many years ago, my youngest and I were reading from the omnibus edition of Hitchhiker’s Guide, and the phone rang. (It was, maybe, 10-11 pm) On the phone was my exchange student daughter, from Iceland. She, too, was reading the omnibus version, and was ON THE SAME PAGE as we were. She suddenly thought of us, and called. (Yes, it was stupid late in Reykjavik) What are the odds?

    I don’t think using Jeopardy as a classroom model is a good idea.
