Text message Q&A service Any Question Answered (AQA) is claiming a record-breaking Easter weekend answering such deep questions as 'What's the meaning of life?', 'Which came first, the chicken or the egg?' and 'What were the winning lottery draw numbers?'
It turns out that the meaning of life is: 'Life is the result of a complex sequence of chemical reactions and has no underlying meaning. Assign a meaning, find out what you love and do it.'
Paul Cockerton, marketing director at AQA, said: "The Easter weekend signalled the start of a very busy period for AQA.
"The combination of the good weather, high profile sporting events and a few extra days off meant that customers were in a very inquisitive mood. We answered a record 60,000 questions over the Easter bank holiday."
The top 10 questions asked over Easter were:
1. What were the winning lottery draw numbers?
2. What's the meaning of life?
3. Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
4. Who won the Oxford - Cambridge boat race?
5. Why am I giving someone an egg?
6. How is Easter's date set?
7. What was Man United's score?
8. What was the result of the Calzaghe fight?
9. Why is the sky blue?
10. What was the England - Australia cricket score?
AQA also recently reported that its six millionth question was answered at 10.17pm on 13 April. The answer to 'How tall is the 2nd tallest man in the world?' was 'The second tallest man in the world is Pakistan's Ajaz Ahmed, who is a towering 8ft 4in'.
