    Another example of British vs American English humor. How about some unique Aussie English humor. (or should that be humour?).

    I'm not sure that pun really fits as British vs American. I was trying to think of other elemental puns, but most elemental names are pretty lame. After all, coming up with a pun using Rutherfordium or Vanadium is pretty difficult.

    1603, of course, is the year that Queen Elizabeth died (Elizabeth I that is).

    Also, 1603 is a well known Windows installation error code when using the Installer Service - meaning that a fatal error occurred but I'm not telling you what!

    That's about the most perfect Post Race post yet. It's informative, not related to any other topic...ever, and came totally out of nowhere.

    1603 is, of course, the current page number in Post Race.

    Ah.... I was wondering what prompted the post as well.

    1603 is also roughly the number of pennies you'd need if you wanted to fill a thin bag plastic bag so it weighed roughly 8.8 pounds.

    I disagree. There are on average 181 pennies (1982 to present stampings) per pound. So for 8.8 pounds it would be 1,592 pennies.

    1592 is "roughly" 1603....

    And 1592 isn't as special as 2kaud presented. It's not a Windows error number of significant value, although the year 1592 did contain the ultimate Pi Day....

    In for a penny, in for a pound, I suppose.

    Seeing how a pound of pennies from 1982+ has virtually very little copper, Im sure the metals are not worth its weight

    The banks kind of hate it, since it messes up the ATM keyboard, but it's safer...cause it doesn't access anything.

    I use facial recognition. I look at the ATM and it welcomes me by name. Then I give it a look signifying no cash on me and broke. So it gives me money based upon how broke I look

    Re: Post Race!

    So, it's a cold and blustery day out here, perfect for trimming the hedges. The reason I wait for a cold day in fall (blustery is not a requirement) is that there are a LOT of wasps that build small nests in the hedges. These are not particularly aggressive wasps. I've run the hedge trimmer through an active nest without being stung. I think they realized it was just an accident. Still, they DO sting. Fortunately, by this temperature, they should all be tucked away for the winter in whatever place they choose. One time, they chose a work glove, and were sorely annoyed when my hand joined them. I was kind of sore after that, too.

    Anyways, I trimmed the hedges and found numerous, abandoned, nests, as I expected. After that, I started raking things up. Along the way, I got the distinct feeling that something was in my pant leg. More alarming, it appeared to be moving upwards. At first I thought it was just a branch, but when attempting to shake it out, caused it to rise higher up my leg, which made me change my assumption. After all, whatever it was seemed fairly large, and was headed towards warmer, and more sensitive, areas.

    At that point, all thoughts of raking left. I wasn't willing to drop trou' in my suburban driveway, though I was tempted. Instead, I headed with all due decorum towards the garage (it took me some time to find one of my gloves, afterwards, which was due to the decorum of my departure). I hit the button to close the garage door, but was unwilling to wait that eternity, so I entered the house and whipped my pants down...and it was a branch from the hedge. The exact physics of this motion is something I can only speculate about. During my minute of panic, the fairly small branch had managed to work its way from my ankle up to mid-thigh, simply by some kind of ratcheting action against cloth and skin.

    Interesting afternoon of activity.

    So, it's a cold and blustery day out here, perfect for trimming the hedges.
    You're lucky. Here it's either raining or drizzling or drizzling or raining. Everywhere and everything is wet. Never mind hedge trimming, can't even get up the leaves they're so wet. Blowing doesn't move them and sucking just clogs up the works! Ahhhhhhh.

    Re: Post Race!

    I live in a desert. Yesterday had a forecast that said a 100% chance of rain. In many places, that would mean that it was going to rain all, or most of, the day. Out here, though, that meant that the ground was going to get wet at some point. As it turned out, it really DID get wet. Some areas got considerable amounts of rain...but by evening, it was partly sunny and things had dried out.

    When we get a rainy day, here, I like to sit in my living room and watch it rain. I've been out in it so much that being able to be warm and dry while it rains is wonderful, but in this area, it's so doggone rare that whenever it happens, you have to pay attention quick, cause it won't last.

    Not just basic, it's visual, too.
