    To understand why the answer to everything is 42, you must first understand what the question is.

    That is why the Earth was built by the mice. And you don't need to know...you're just a small part of the biologoical computational power of the earth-computer system. (A computer works without having to know why it works). The mice will reveal all when the program has run it's course.

    ....Providing the Earth isn't demolished by a Vogon construction fleet to make way for a hyper-spactial bypass.
