Question: "What is the probability that two, loosely connected events would happen on the same day, in the same year?"
Answer: "Not impossible, just highly improbable." or "42"
Improbable or not, two, well actually three, such events have come together, on one day, in the same year.
For you see, today is the rather improbable, "Geek Pride Day", and as a matter of coincidence, it is also "Towel Day", a day that marks the passing of "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" author Douglas Adams in 2001.
But wait, there is another improbable element to this equation. The growing number of, "Geek Girl Divas", young women who are fans of Japanese anime, comic books, video games, action figures and movies with big robots in them.
How do all of these rather improbable, yet separate, items fit together?
Okay, lets run them all through our "Infinite Improbability Drive" and see what happens.
The answer: Semi-nude amateur photography or "42".
Again, not impossible, but highly improbable.
I am very certain that the late Douglas Adams would have ever dreamed that his passing would give young, socially awkward, girls an opportunity/excuse to pose for amateur erotic photographs ..... of a geeky nature.
Yet, that is exactly what has happened.
The photograph above pretty much sums it up, an attractive young lady, undoubtedly a "Geek Girl Diva", wearing a towel and nothing else. Seems like your typical amateur nudity right? Ah, there is more here than meets the eye. Look at the mirror in the photo. Do you see the words, "Day 42"? That's the giveaway. The towel she is wearing, barely, is a reference from "Hitchhiker's Guide". "Day 42" are kinda a Geek code words for "Towel Day", another reference to Adams and the "Hitchhiker's Guide."
FYI: This is only one example of dozens of such photographs out there.
Is this all starting to meld in your grey matter yet?
Three loosely connected events coming together on the same day, in the same year, with the result being semi-nude amateur photography.
Not impossible, but highly improbable.
Okay, if you are not a geek, a geek girl diva, or a fan of sci fi, comic books, action figures and movies with big robots, this all may have sounded like babel to you.
If so, stick a Babel Fish in your ear and have a friend read the article to you aloud, or better yet, consult your "Hitchhiker's Guide", it's the one with the big red letters on the front that say "Don't Panic!".
Oh, and the number "42", it's the answer to "What is Life, the Universe and Everything." What, you don't think that makes any sense? Well, it's because you didn't ask the right question.
What is the question? Do you have a million years to find out?
Oh, just stare at the naked girl then.......
