Maybe you know something we don't, but those oi you who suggested that ‘we apologise tor the inconvenience’, ‘the great white handkerchlei‘, 32, 47 or43 were the answers to the universe were either divinely inspired or just plain wrong. The answer, according to Douglas Adams at least, is 42. Obvious really. For a more sclentitic explanation oi matters cosmic, copies oi the video oi A Brlei History oi Time and a Reader’s Companion to the book by Stephen Hawking are on their way to .Peter Chung, David Adams, Ka Addo (all Glasgow), Cath McNeiian and Julie Tomllnson (both Edinburgh).

Out came the guilty secrets when we ‘
probed into your stair-cleaning habits. Honesty wasn’t always the name oi the game we suspected alter consultating various Neighbourhood Watch organisers, though invariably you had a good excuse ior not taking your turn on the common stair-cleaning rota. Desiree Atkinson (Glasgow) argued, not entirely convincingly, that ‘none oi our stairs are “common” —they are all special individuals,’ so we gave her a pair oi tickets to see the Traverse’s Your Turn to Clean the Stair at Mayiest as a humanitarian gesture. Similarly we were right behind Mike Sinclair (Glasgow) who explained, ‘I cleaned it two months ago, but Catriona hasn’t done it once and Mrs Milllgan across the way is llvid’. John Marley (Blantyre) put up a strong delence with ‘l cleaned it last time . . . it’s your turn,’ though we have to disagree. And lrom Edinburgh, Moira Crawiord’s plea oi ‘never’ won her our support ior honesty, while Claire Fowler’s ‘two minutes ago’ won Ior audacity. And to all the many other entrants, just remember we’ve got you on record now. Big Brother is watching you.
