As is universally known, the number 42 is the answer to the ultimate question of Life, the Universe and Everything. This number was calculated by a giant supercomputer over a period of 50 million years. Unfortunately no one knows what the question was. Therefore, in order to calculate the Ultimate Question, a special computer the size of a small planet and using organic components was created and named DRS.
The DRS calculated the Ultimate Question to be “What should be the ultimate voter turnout?”. When asked how it came to this solution, the DRS replied: “The answer to this is very simple. It was a joke. It had to be a number, an ordinary, smallish number, and I chose that one. I sat at my desk, stared into the garden and thought ’42 will do’. I typed it out. End of story.” The DRS described its choice as ‘a completely ordinary number, a number not just divisible by two but also six and seven. In fact it’s the sort of number that you could without any fear introduce to your parents’.
