This is blog post 42.
42 is a very significant number for me – it’s the answer to life the universe and everything according to Douglas Adams Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Most of you now are thinking that I should be confined to a darkened sealed room and left for a while to heal as the stress is getting to me and I’ve finally flipped.
For the most part you’re not wrong, however I’m a special breed – I’m and engineer and as such every engineer needs to have read this – by law!Other people are allowed to read this book of course, but only the engineer needs the education provided within it’s pages to survive. The ironic, satirical and clever humour and random, seemingly unconnected events prepare the engineer for all of this in their life.
Along with this there is the advice to always carry a towel and… don’t panic. This kind of advice is invaluable and if there’s one thing in life I’ve learned, it’s not to panic. Often things are worse than they seem.
So this is my small and rather unusual celebration of post number 42.
Keep smiling and remember – don’t panic!
