An interesting choice, given that we already know that it is more than 143. :wink:

But since we are down to just throwing numbers around, I could do that too!

250?

I'm really going to have to go into the loft tonight and dig out the tech manual aren't I... :roll:

Or you can google it and say that you went up to the loft. :)

Your conscience would be clean if you know that the fact is up there, wouldn't it?

There's 42. It's the answer to Everything.

Higher than 250.

This is a silly question, really. I'd say that internet research is permitted (if not REQUIRED) - finding it on there might still be a challenge but if anyone can find it without looking at the tech manual I'll be impressed!!

Lucidor has it. Congratulations!

Now other people have it in their heads and I'm not the only one sad enough to know it. I feel relieved.

And they are 72mm long duranium rods. No-one knows if they are stem bolts.

Wow, I feel like I've hit the Death star's secret weak point by accident. :)

Who invented the zeroth law? (not the author)

Arrrrggghhhh! Erm, it was the Robot left behind in the last of the Foundation Novels (Foundation and Earth?) who explains it to the hero of the piece who I also currently can't remember the name of.

Good and very annoying, infuriating question! I will have to think it over (my Foundation novels reside at my parent's house - 300+ miles away)
