    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

    That's explains it.

    I went to the ATM just yesterday. It said, "Hello, RobDogg. Here's $300."

    Thanks, by the way.
