i think rule 42 is the cooler of the two, and has the better number. so i went with that.

I like The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Pirates myself, even if there isn't a Rule 42 listed.

"11. Everything is air-droppable at least once."

So true -- twice if you have enough spare parts...

Hey, own up to it, this is cooler than being on Jeopardy, except for the no money thing, and the not being on TV thing, and ... oh never mind

Since I could not determine which Rule 42 you are refering to here (consolidation of like cases in court, definition of legal & illegal ways for sailing boats to pass each other during a race, etc), I am going with the only Rule #6 that matter: no pooftahs!

If Rule 42 is what I now think it is, which makes sense given Mr Silver's sense of humor, then I decree that Rule 42 is much cooler than Rule 6, which doesn't even exist.

I say this as someone who is well shorter than a mile tall, and is not at any rate currently in a courtroom regardless.

Argh!! I didn't see this until other people got to guess the rules.
Alas.
At least I still got to vote for 42. :)

I'm oddly excited that as I post this there are 6 people who voted for rule 6.

Wait, do those people exist if rule 6 doesn't exist?
