43

42 was an interesting number, mainly because Douglas Adams used it as the answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything. 42 appealed to my sense of the absurd.

43 seems like a much less interesting number. The biggest things it seems to be associated with are 43 Things and 43 Folders which is all about getting organized, figuring out priorities, Getting Things Done, that sort of thing.

Absurdity has always appealed to me more then organization. We'll see....

Try 51. It's enough to make you cry.

There is Licor 43 (Cuarenta y Tres), the Vanilla liquor from Spain. That is pretty fascinating.

Happy b-day Ralph! I agree, there is something magic about 42 and Douglas Adams. I'll never forget the night I got to hear him speak in Austin. What a hoot!

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio
