Last night Wesley and I headed down to play Frisbee golf with Mat, Elliott, and Jurgen (who is visiting from Seattle).  With the shrinking daylight by the time we finished it was rather dark On the way home he stopped, looked up and said “Oh, pretty stars!”.

He then proceeded to stare, head turned up and count the stars.  He moved his hand pointing at the stars one at a time.  It looked like he was trying to count books on a high shelf.  “One, two, three…”  After a little while he said with certainty: “13″.  Throughout the eons man has pondered the stars and wondered, “How many stars are in the heavens?”  I don’t know why it has been so hard for everyone to figure out, but the clear and definitive answer is thirteen.

    Thanks Wesley, I was dreading having to count all those guys.

    And all this time I thought the answer was 42.

  3. Joshua says:

    Almost Dave. 13 is just the number of stars. 42 is the “answer to life, the universe, and everything“.
