Yes, it's my 300th blog posting!
Wow ... I thought I'd be bored with it after just 100 ...
In honor of blog posting #300, this is brought to you by the number 300!
300, of course, is a triangular number and the sum of a pair of twin primes (149 + 151), as well as the sum of ten consecutive primes (13 + 17 + 19 + 23 + 29 + 31 + 37 + 41 + 43 + 47). It is a Harshad number. To learn more about the number 300, click here.
300 is the number of Spartans that fought in the Battle of Thermopylae. Um, totally one of my favorite films! That queen is so bad-ass!
300 is a perfect score in bowling. Someday, I will achieve a 300 ... in Wii bowling, of course!
300 was apparently the year in which lions went extinct in Armenia, the elephants went extinct in North Africa and the wild ass went extinct in Algeria. Poor extinct animals. Other important happened in the year 300 as well.
Oh, 300. How important you are!
