W|A: Life, the Universe, and Everything

I am absolutely ecstatic that Wolfram Alpha knows the answer to life, the universe, and everything. Indeed, it comes right back with "42" and a parenthetical citation: "(according to Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)."

On reflection, it turns out Google knows the answer too, but doesn't cite its source (which I think I actually prefer).
