1 + 1 riddle

What is 1+1? the answer begins with F.

Is not Function, not Fraction... Don't know what the answer is. It is suppose to be a riddle.

if you dont know what the answer is then how do you know function and fraction arent the possible answers.

I was thinking about four too... but i don't know why though...

perhaps 1 1 is 2, and the + sign has 2 sticks, so makes 4?

I have no idea, but a google search over "The answer is 42" returns over 5000 hits!

Does anybody know how this started (the "42" stuff)?

Well is Fact the answer your looking for? I'm sure there are many people here who would disgree with that statement.
