42 and the inadequacy of Wikipedia
I wanted to know the page or chapter reference of 42 (actually, I now notice, ‘Forty-two’) in HHGTTG.
Do you think I could find it?
No, of course not, so I looked on Wikipedia. Wikipedia explains it in detail but omits the one citation which is necessary (it does, not entirely unhelpfully, cite the book, but that still leaves 159 pages to scan).
For those who care, I gave up and scanned through the book. It took a little longer b/c I assumed it would be in an italicised section from the Guide. It isn’t. It’s page 135, at the end of chapter 27.
