397 posts!

Everyone always celebrates 500 or 1000 posts. I think we should be more supportive towards the infinite collection of less trendy numbers that are out there for us to enjoy.

For those of you thinking that 397 is about as dull a number as you can get, prepare to be blown away by these 3 amazing facts:

1) 397 is a prime number.
2) If you add 3 + 9 + 7 you get 19. Which is also a prime. Amazing.
3) Er...

Ok, in spite of my lack of empirical evidence, its still a pretty cool number.

Re: 397 posts!

It is also 32 more than the number of days in the year, if there were 397 days in the year we would have a 13 month year, if we gave February an extra day that is. Amazing.

I like to be blown away, but Fraser, this truly is a very dull number no matter what.

Re: 397 posts!

The biblical canon, arguable the most important and relevant document in history, was settled in the year 397. It's an awesome number. My recommendation to Fraser is that he now cease posting, in order to preserve this for all time.

I hope such an awesome and interesting (yet cruelly overlooked) number will exist quite independantly of the number of posts I make.

Not the verb tense that comes to mind in that regard.
