I think this is some sort of psychological evaluation. Therefore, I hastened to jokingly select \"I\'m going to kill you\" and went for 42.

Wouldn\'t it be great if the username of the registered visitors was indicated next to what that person voted for?
How Odd

I also had the gut instinct to vote "I am going to kill you" but went for the geeky "42" instead. Not sure what this means..although numbers do make me mad.
Weird

Ok, the story behind \"I\'m going to kill you\".

zen8tao and I were on a four day bout of hiking madness a few years ago (I think we did 16 miles in Yosemite, followed by drive, followed by 4 miles in Sequoia Nat\'l Park, followed by me sitting and reading while he did 13 miles in King\'s Canyon, followed by ~10 miles of hiking/climbing in some unknown area near Sequoia...)

The place we stayed in King\'s Canyon was remote. Very remote. And we hadn\'t planned ahead and brought decent food, so we went to the motel \"snack bar\" and ordered eggs for breakfast in the morning. Mine arrived with bacon or something in it, and I (being a vegetarian) asked if they\'d remake them. The cook in the kithchen held up a spatula and said \"I\'m going to kill you\". It seemed so non sequiter, so bizarre (and so frightening to the folks waiting in line). I replied \"well, it\'ll be a nice locale to go in. Do you want to kill me here, or should we go outside?\"

I guess it\'s hard to explain why it was so funny to zen8tao and me. (Also, this was shortly before the handyman in Yosemite killed the 3 women...so I didn\'t take it too seriously.)

What does it have to do with a chicken crossing a road? Nothing. Except that in some dark, twisted way, I\'ve found the line \"I\'m going to kill you\" hilarious since the incident. And \"Why did the chicken cross the road?\" is a joke, right? So an answer should be a funny punchline.

Now, as to why norcalfella and Sarcasmo are so sick, I have no explanation. But I do know norcalfella hadn\'t heard of Douglas Adams, and I suspect Sarcasmo picked 42 for exactly the association.
Strawberries

Some rabbits actually like strawberries. In fact, my two get a nibble or two of strawberry once in a while. On the other hand, ice cream is bad. Don\'t give a rabbit ice cream since they are vegan. That is why I voted \"rabbits don\'t like strawberry ice cream\".
