Ok so the hint in abs() is "We are so good at puns" and now I'm probably going to spend the rest of my life trying to find that pun, can you guys help??
We know that a pun relates to words or expressions that have multiple meanings. This one is kind of hard to grasp unless one is familiar Douglas Adam's work, "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy". In the work, a computer has spent so long computing an answer, 42, that it has forgotten what the original question is. The question as it turns out is,
"What is the meaning of life?" => 42
Whenever we answer in the definitive, we are expressing an 'absolute'. Anyway, that's my take on it. Could be completely out to lunch. Maybe someone else will come up with a more refined idea.
Thanks for helping! Now I understand!
