Vanishing point

It does seem pointless at times to try and make a point. Points are fleeting at best. Even the sharpest points are mutable with time and experience. Case in point, the meaning of life. I think it changes depending upon what point you are in your life.

I realize I'm probably not scoring any points with those people who are used to fixed points or are expecting a thousand points of enlightenment. All I can do is point you in the right direction. At that point you are on your own.

BTW, the photo above is not an example of Pointillism.

Pure n Simple........
Didn't ya ever see the series?

Hayden said...

but what's the point of vanishing?

I'm sticking with 42. I'm so sold on 42 that I'm going to sign everything with it as a reminder.

I read all of Douglas Adams' books. And most people focus on 42, but if you recall, it was the question, not the answer that was important.

Hayden, That is the point. And 42 was the age that Elvis died.


Wasn't it six by seven? Six by nine is 54. It is a moot point.

I will turn 42 in March and am looking forward to it. Btw - your vanishing conehead pic gave me the goosebumps - I guess I totally missed your point. hahaha...okay, that was stupid.

THE Michael,
And I see dead people.

Miss Bliss,
And your point?

Whitesnake said...

Ok, What about Monty Python?

Time said...

Whitesnake, Yes, Monty Python's Meaning of Life...Every Sperm is Sacred, Live Liver Donars and just one thin mint. That movie had many points of view on life.

Nope, it really was "What do you get when you multiply six and nine?" (Remember Arthur Dent and the Scrabble bag?)

As for *why* 42 is the Ultimate Answer, well, only one man can speak to that with any authority.
