Just because I have become 6 x 9 (base 13) years old doesn’t mean one should panic. In fact, DON’T PANIC should be written on my birthday cake.

It’s easy for one to become philosophical when one’s age becomes “THE answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything”

Hmmm.. I wonder how old I’ve become? (-:

Another hint.

I’m the second Sphenic number. I can be calculated via age= PxQxR where PQR are all distinct prime numbers.

RobertaGeeks! Nobody likes a word problem before coffee…you are 42. Smart azz.

RichJust for the geek factor the first Sphenic number is 2x3x5=30 The first second and third prime numbers.

So the second Sphenic number wouldn’t be 3x5x7=105. I’m not quite that old yet. Bur rather it would be 2x3x7=42. There, I’ve given it away. Not that Roberta didn’t beat me to it. (-:

SarahYou’re such a dork Rich.

Thanks to growing up with my geeky brother, I actually know that 42 is “THE answer to Life, the Universe and Everything.” No math skills needed here!
