Earth Day 42

In computing standards, character 42 is the asterisk, star, splat, shift-8 on my keyboard, 101010 in binary, U+002A in Unicode, used to signify multiplication in many of my favorite programming languages, zero or more of the previous thing in regular expressions, and as a wildcard character, zero or more of anything.
42. Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Or on Sunday, April 22, 2012, the 42nd annual Earth Day.
Or maybe it’s approximately “Earth Day” 1,658,307,640,000 give or take a few billion.
