My sister did a "My Most Used Words" study on her facebook and found she has used the word "Tea" 42 times.  :D I'm so proud of her!

Oh, and yesterday my bill at the store was exactly $42.00.  ;D

Just made my 42nd tweet. Had I realized it, I would have made it DNA related. But it goes through facebook, so I didn't notice until after.

I seem to be encountering a lot of 42s in my math in school.    :o

I have this friend who finds the number 19 everywhere--the number of occurrences is just baffling. I don't know what to make of it.

Great!  And I won't spoil it by being #43, not that you would mind, but I categorically refuse to participate in Facebook.  I could site reasons relating to privacy, big brother, accusations of evil doings, and whatnot; or you could simply conclude that I am old, un-hip, anti-social and anti-system.  Either one works.

I will, however, try to get to reading your book soon.

@Lewot- the number 19, eh? I wonder what that means. I wonder if there's a symbolic significance. But that's usually 3 or 13.

@Kilman- you old fogie!  ;) I resisted FB for a long time, then my oldest daughter moved out and it became the main way to find out about her life. Now that's how I keep in touch with my step daughters too. I don't text and they don't call, so this has worked just peachy-swell.

@VogonGirl - 42 does come up a lot in math. I think the mathbook people are big DNA fans.  ;D My twins and I notice it a lot.

I know this is not a sighting but I thought it must be said so...............................................................I heard a bunny say "42" in a movie.  I forgot what it was called though.   :P

It is now 42 days from December. How I came upon knowing this is by doing a hard math problem that had to do with the time of the year, the answer was 42 and so I counted (just for fun) how many days till December and there it was 42 as plan as blue.
In search to know all things.

Part of one of my math questions today was 7 times 6 which = 42.   8)
The actual question was 16 times 7 over 49 times 24.   :D

A power outage happened here yesterday, and my alarm clock died.    :P 
Today I set the time on it, and it was 7:42.   :o

Molybdenum



Try to say that fast three times, or even once

This, incidentally, is the element with atomic number 42!
