    Everybody KNows that it is 42. Why should google be any different?

    When I am doubting, although rare, does occur, I remain grounded and confident because the answer is always there and always correct, i.e., never exactly wrong.

    This has been there for at least 5 years that I know of, probably longer. Ever since they added the calculator functionality.

    Of course, every so often somebody posts "hey, you can use google as a calculator!" too, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised.
