The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything

42.

It's also a primary pseudoperfect number, is bracketed by twin primes and is part of the value of pi (the eight digits after the first 242,422 are 42424242). The atomic number of molybdenum is 42 and that's a really fun word to say - molybdenum. Wolves have 42 teeth! Io's orbit around Jupiter is 42 days. The beast will hold dominion over the world for 42 months. Nemo was taken to 42 Wallaby Way. Jackie Robinson wore the number 42, the first and only number retired by every MLB team.

I'm in good company today.
