"Maybe it's the meaning of life?"

"How is that possible? That makes no sense."

"You make no sense!"

"Now you're being childish."

"I bet it's the meaning of life."

"You'd owe me a lot of money. I don't even think you have any money to give me."

"We're getting off track here."

"I don't think we were ever on track."

"Your idea to convert the numbers to binary, flip the string and convert to hex had some merit."

"Did we ever do that?"

"Yeah but it didn't lead anywhere."

"Did you try hash?

"Yeah, last week. WOOO let me tell ya."

"You're an idiot."

"Did you hear the sound conversion?"

"It was beautiful. Strangely arousing."

"You were looking at the WiKi gallery, weren't you?"

"That's beside the point. I think I heard a voice in the remix."

"Maybe it was Sente!"

"Do you think he was trying to tell us the meaning of life?"

"That's ridiculous. Stop being stupid."

"Ok so what was Sente trying to tell us?"

"It sounded like he was giving us some GPS coordinates."

"Have you tried plugging in the number to a transmitter?"

"Yeah, a voice talked to me."

"What? You didn't tell me that. Who was it?"

"It was God."

"God? What was his name?"

"HER name!"

"Her name?"

"That's right."

"The rumours were true."

"What rumours?"

"Never mind. What was her name?"

"ONSTAR"

"I wonder what she looks like?"

"She's a divine entity idiot! She doesn't look like anything!"

"I bet she's hot."

"Is her picture in the wiki?"

"What did ONSTAR tell you?"

"Help is on the way."

"Good, I think we need help."

"The secret lies in e."

"e?"

"That's what she said.?"

"Who?"

"The goddess."

"ONSTAR?"

"Yes."

"I think I saw a picture of her once."

"Do you have some e?"

"Yeah I picked some up with the hash."

"Have you integrated it yet?"

"Yes."

"Extrapolated?"

"Yep."

"Multiplied?

"Ya."

"Divided?"

"Of course!"

"Hmmm, been to any raves?"

"Yeah the e was at its best there."

"What did you learn?"

"My sex drive is non-existent and I'm thirsty."

"Enough with e then?

"I think so."

"I think whoever created e was on e."

"Too stoned to stop writing eh?"

"Yeah. I think he was just writing down his phone number."

"That's it!"

"What's it?"

"221-545-4848!"

"Let's phone it!"

"Perplex Pizza."

"OMGOMG DO YOU HAVE A CUBE!"

"No, we have pizza."

"But there's a cube there right?"

"No, but we have some bread circles."

"Can I get one of those?'

"Sure, that'll be $22.10"

"Are you sure you don't have a cube?"

"No, but I have some e."

"Perfect! Put it on the pizza."

"Whatever you say, master."

"Bye"

"Bye"

"So?"

"We're getting a pizza!"

"Awesome!"

"Someone's at the door."

"Don't answer it."

"Why not?"

"It might be S. Marchant."

"So? Maybe he can tell us what the number means."

"Did you see his note? That guy is fucked in the head."

"Maybe he was just on e when he wrote it?"

"Maybe he just read the e thread."

"Insanity is as insanity does."

"He's still at the door."

"Let him in."

"Ok. Who are you?"

"I have your pizza."

"Nice! Do you have the e?"

"The what?"

"The e! Do you have the e!"

"I guess. Isn't it a natural exponent?

"What? Just give it to me!"

"You're crazy!"

"I know."

"Who was that."

"It was the pizza guy."

"I'm going to read that thread again."

"Why?"

"I think I'm on to something."

"Spec?"

"What else is there?"

"Not too much!"

"Look at all the ingredients on this thing!"

"Try rearranging them all."

"Why?"

"Maybe there's a ROT message."

"Have you lost it?"

"Who are you talking to?"

"I'm talking to you?"

"Who's you?"

"What? I'm me!"

"No, I am!"

"Just get back to your e thread."

"I'm going to run a base 64 ceaser cipher algorithm on the number."

"Haven't we already done that?"

"I can't remember."

"Hey, maybe it's the meaning of life."

"How is that possible? That makes no sense."

"You make no sense!"

"Now you're being childish."

"I bet it's the meaning of life."
