explain xkcd – Because you can’t know everything

Yes, quoting xkcd has become the norm. It’s funny, apt, insightful, silly and yes I’m even guilty of it myself. But … do you get it? I mean really get it? No, I mean really, really, really get it?

If you don’t, that’s ok because there’s an app a website for that. Explain xkcd. There, now you’re all set for parties.

If you assign each letter a value from 1 to 26, then the sum of the values of X, K, C, and D equals 42.  This number is significant as being widely recognized as the “Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything.”  It was first used by author Douglas Adams in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and has since been referenced in numerous other books, movies, and tv shows.
