I propose a game. Several years ago, I belonged to an online community which sported a thread of numbers. We started from 1. Most of the first several numbers were simply designated as prime, but when things got into double digits, we found assignations for the numbers. For instance: 23 could just be designated as prime. The next post could have to do with the 24th parallel, or the 24th element, or the 24th Nobel Peace Prize winner, or what 24 cups of flour could be used for (and is divisible by 2,3,6, and 12). 25 (divisible by 5) might talk about what happened in the year 25 C.E., or that there are 25 menus here, or that a 25 cent stamp in Canada looked like this.
26. I looked up "26 shouts" and found this. Then willy-nilly, I looked up 26 celsius and found this, then searching "2/6/09 dog" yields this. 27 is divisible by 3, 7, and 9. There is a movie called "27 Dresses." Romania is the 27th EU nation. Then on to 28. Just a notion for the holiday ennui.
WendellMr. Foop, that's a whole lot of information and history I didn't need to know, but we welcome you in your sockpuppetnew persona as oneswellfoop.
