Clodfobble is right. All except one were hanged. The exception was pressed.

Oh, and sorry about the link not being an AP or Reuters source.

....the best thread ever! I'm jealous of lookout123 who was the 29th response. 29 is the cube root of 24389. Did you know that 12345679*8 (the number you skipped) = 98765432.

e^1 = 2.718281828

This coming from a person who enjoys string theory??

Here's something else, a standard american roulette wheel has 0, 00, and numbers 1-36. If you add up all the numbers on the wheel (i.e. 1-36) the sum is 666.

Actually, "geek" is a term of endearment to my way of thinking. wolf, whom I admire and aspire to be like, freely and on numerous occasions, has admitted her geek-ness.
Anyone who knows that much about numbers and LOVES it has got be heading towards the Geek-dom. I like geeks! Never assume.

Don't worry, I didn't take it personally. I'm an engineering graduate student, so I know that I am a geek to some extent. My response about you liking string theory was supposed to be a light-hearted comment, which, by the way, is pretty cool.

I knew it was meant to be light-hearted. See, this is what is wrong with interacting thru a computer--it's hard to tell who is kidding even with all the advanced smilies we have!

As far as string theory goes: I watched one program (well, I watched it twice) on PBS--Our Elegant Universe, I believe it was--that dealt with string theory. I thought it was soooooooo cool! It's all I know of it, though. The guy did a great job of explaining it, though. What are your thoughts on it?

PS--xoxoxobruce: what is that supposed to mean?

Hell no, I'm never mean. If you're aware of strings you should be aware of branes.

I know this might seem the dumbest question ever heard from me but,

the Friday before the last, wasn't that Friday 13th? that would mean that this tread was stated on that day and that most of the comments on that day were of the #13 and not the 27?

HOW CAN I MISS THAT?

well, today is the 27, so what do y'all thik of the 27?
