    The sum of 13 1 20 and 8 is 42, so I guess it's a meaning of life meme

    EDIT: the letters also correspond to the positions Math takes in the alphabet, hence math42 as an alternate name

    Just threw it in there for the reference really.
    Some have suggested that I am saying math is the meaning of the life, but it was much more random when I made the name I think..

    Ah fair enough, I think I recall seeing a video about where the 42 thing came from but where exactly seems to be eluding me as of now

    It comes from Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Inhabitants of a certain planet of highly intelligent beings build a supercomputer designed to answer the "ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything". It does so over the course of millions of years, and returns the answer "42".

    That explains why I'm somewhat familiar with the name Douglas Adams.... Is the book good?

    Nope. I love the word sinfonietta. I was obsessed with Tomohisa Yamashita's album SUPERGOOD, SUPERBAD when I registered and it had a beautiful song called Tokyo Sinfonietta on it. The opening lyrics go something like:*

    "Sin-fo-nie-tta
    Love cry smile kiss
    Shine rainbow bliss"*

    Simplistic but catchy. *
