Douglas Adams supposedly used 42 because it crops up a lot (or numbers close to it) in astronomy. eg. The Hubble constant was thought to be about 42.(For those who don't know. The Hubble constant is the rate at which the universe is expanding.) :P

When discussing Ed Wood's "Plan 9 From Outer Space" with Scully, Mulder also mentions to her that he has seen that film "42" times.

Well, I heard in an interview of David Duchovny that 42 would be his age when he will quit The X-Files show...

Not news.... I think in one episode he said that's why he went for that apartment.

Mulder never ever EVER said that that is why he went for the apartment......ever. And yes, David Duchovny is retiring from the X-Files at 41 although he said he would do so at 42 because the apartment number seemed to be an appropriate age.

There were also 42 lesser gods observing at the ancient Egyptian "Weighing of the Heart" ceremony, where the soul of the deceased is judged on its purity by Osiris and Anubis before being allowed to enter the afterlife.

Everyone who hasn't been living under a rock knows that one. In fact, it was mentioned in a featured MSN article at msn.com yesterday.

Umm no offense guys, but did it ever occur to you that they just picked the number 42 because those were the stage prop letters they had? No use making a mountain over a mole hill.
