I had this idea for making one but I thought it could be too niche for you guys, but I saw the Valar Morgulis goodie go in today so I figured I'd ask. A goodie to answer 'The ultimate answer to the life, universe and everything"

I went ahead and coded it but I figure I should ask on here before doing anything. If anyone thinks its a good idea, awesome lemme know and maybe give some ideas on triggers, since its kind of a long query.

it might be a nice idea to make a general easter egg goodie for Question => Answer easter eggs (like "make me a sandwich", "Valar Morgulis" and this one) so you just would have to, for example, add the Question and the Answer to a text file in order to create a new easter egg.

I'm sorry if my English isn't very good.

Hey, your English is perfectly readable. I mentioned doing something like your idea of an EasterEgg goodie that would encompass all of the things like this and the GoT one when I submitted my pull request: https://github.com/duckduckgo/zeroclicki...

I haven't really looked into other fatheads (which is what I think an IA like that would be, using an outside data source [text file]) so I wasn't sure if we could get triggers in from a .txt file. I'm planning on looking into that this week. Also getting enough Input=>Response pairs would take some time, or would need to be opened up to the community. I absorb a ton of pop culture but listing enough pairs by myself would be hard haha.

I have it mostly finished. Just need to add the test file. I just wanted to see if you guys would mind doing a more or less useless (but very fun! lol) goodie.
