Bogus Domain ContactsI was tracking down the source of some spam, and came across these whois records of the spammers. Where has Network Solutions been sleeping? Just look at the contact information on these (makes for a pretty good laugh, if it weren't so pathetic).

The answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything = 42|
"Forty-two!" yelled Loonquawl. "Is that all you've got to show for seven and a half million years' work?" "I checked it very thoroughly," said the computer, "and that quite definitely is the answer. I think the problem, to be quite honest with you, is that you've never actually known what the question is."
Arthur Dent (as the last human to have left the Earth before its destruction, and therefore the portion of the computer matrix most likely to hold the question) attempts to discover the Question by extracting it from his unconscious mind, through pulling Scrabble letters at random out of a sack. The result is the sentence "WHAT DO YOU GET IF YOU MULTIPLY SIX BY NINE".
"Six by nine. Forty-two."
Since 6 * 9 = 54, this being the question would imply that the universe is bizarre and irrational;
However, it was later pointed out that 6 * 9 = 42 if the calculations are performed in base 13, not base 10. Douglas Adams was not aware of this at the time, and has since been quoted as saying that "nobody writes jokes in base 13."
