No you are not - except it is not a joke, it is far more serious than that.

Sorry, this comes up a lot in the submarine force.

From the Wikipedia entry: "According to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, researchers from a pan-dimensional, hyper-intelligent race of beings constructed the second greatest computer in all of time and space, Deep Thought, to calculate the Ultimate Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything. After seven and a half million years of pondering the question, Deep Thought provides the answer: 42."
