Let's return to Google's calculator for one final hidden feature.

For a bit of fun, try entering the query what is the answer to life the universe and everything. Google's answer should delight long-time fans of Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. (It's "42", in case you were wondering.)
