In which Marilyn, finds herself without air cover or infantry support, and cut off from the People’s Army of the Fourteenth International. She moves swiftly back up the timestream to Episode Nine. Using the disguised Blasco Ladder, and simultaneously employing the hidden power of the Calendar of Xvexulacapa the Sun Hammer, she calculates that the secret of life, the universe, and everything is not 42 after all but in fact 30! (But she keeps smiling, and wears her gloves. The Fat Men in Hats are closing in on critical vectors.)

I think the fact that she came up with number 30 points to the fact she's accidentally slipped into an alternative universe!

Will this keep her ahead of the Fat Men in Hats or was it them messing with her timeslip?

Marilyn will outlive the Fat Men in Hats. She has bigger legs.

Here's some events on March 30 that she might have been hinting to:
240 BC - 1st recorded perihelion passage of Halley's Comet.
1855 - Origins of the American Civil War: Bleeding Kansas - "Border Ruffians" from Missouri invade Kansas and force election of a pro-slavery legislature.
1914 - birthdate of Sonny Boy Williamson I
1961 - The Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs is signed at New York.
1968 - birthdate of Celine Dion
1981 - President Ronald Reagan is shot in the chest outside a Washington hotel by John Hinckley, Jr.
2006 - UK Terrorism Act 2006 becomes law.

Alternative universe is putting it mildly.

And whoever of the nether world has descended peacefully
The inflated ego of the tyrant is a monster avid for the greedy rights of "my and mine"
Whirlwinds rocks thunder and flame
smoking weapons
The antagonist hurled against the saviour.
