What is the meaning of life?

This is a tough one.. The answer varies depending on whom you ask but each has its own sense of truth in context. According to Douglas Adams, the author of the book The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, the greatest computer ever built was asked what the meaning of life is and it literally told everyone it is 42.

42 is ASCII for the * character or the "wildcard character". The wildcard character represents every character and is often used in advanced searches. In other words, the meaning of life is "whatever you want it to be" :)
