There is magic in that number 42. Might you be missing something of cosmic importance?

Have you seen zulu numbers? There is a reason nobody uses them.

Think of any first-world language you like, it usually takes 11 syllables to count to 10 because there is always one number that has 2.
In english it is 7, german 9, french 4.

in zulu it takes 42 syllables to count to 10. Not a mathematical culture.


I'm still sure he'll do it better than I can.
