So for my job I am setting up an Elastic Stack installation, and when researching a specific problem I was having I went to a dead link, which brought me here:



This made my week. I love this 404 page.

P.S. The babel fish reference may exist because the whole thing runs on Github Sites.
This is a passage from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, with the word God replaced with Page. It mentions the babel fish because that's how the book goes.

Quote:
Now it is such a bizarrely improbable coincidence that something so mind-bogglingly useful could have evolved purely by chance that some thinkers have chosen to see it as a final and clinching proof of the non-existence of God.
The argument goes something like this: 'I refuse to prove that I exist,' says God, 'for proof denies faith, and without faith, I am nothing.' 'But, says Man, the Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and, by your own arguments, you don't. QED.' 'Oh dear,' says God, 'I hadn't thought of that,' and vanishes in a puff of logic. 'Oh, that was easy,' says Man, and for an encore goes on to prove that black is white and gets himself killed on the next zebra crossing.
"Oh dear," says johnbchron, "I hadn't thought of that," and vanishes in a puff of uncultured-swinity.
Very cool.
