Happy towel day!

If you have come looking for the answer to life, universe and everything else... I just gotta tell you the answer is 42.
If you have come looking for answers to Australian life might be a little different. (But the answer might be 42 as well, he he)
Anyway, today is the towel day, annual celebration of towels in tribute to Douglas Adams and his “Hitchhiker Guide to the Galaxy” (which have become on my favourite books).
It seems there are tons more fans out there including Google, HP and other huge brands.
So long and thanks for all the fish.

42! one of my favorite numbers! this number was my number when I was in the school a long time ago (well, not THAT long jaja) ...it's good to know that this fantastic number is the answer for everything, but certainly, I don't have a clue what are you talking about jaja....

He he, don't mind Nora. Let me explain you a bit,

There is a book titled "hitchhiker guide to the galaxy" which contains the story of an human traveling through space and time to find the answer to the ultimate question...

That question is "know the meaning of everything... the answer to life, the universe and everything else..." or the question should be "Why do we exists?". But in this book, pandimentional beings (superior beings) created a super dupper computer called deep thoughts, responsible of finding that answer and her output after 7.5 millions years later was 42 (because didn't understood the question of "the answer to life, the universe and everything else..."). The fact is (in the book) that towels are one of the most precious items in the entire universe because of its multiple uses.

In honour to the late author of these books the towel day is celebrated every May 25.

Try to rent to movie, but you better read the book because explains tons more.

Cheers
