The Number 53

Posted by Kragghle , in Nerd, Uncategorized Jan 03 2009 · 26 views

Life
:kaukau: Okay, I love the number 53. For a long time, I've wanted to make a list of all things that had to do with that number. However, I never got around to it. The number seems to be everywhere, and for a long time I've been wanting to record its seeming omnipresence. I'm calling you to reply to this topic and give me various facts in order to assist me in making this list.

Please reply.

Your Honor,
Emperor Kraggh

My brain has 53 cells in it tongue.gif .

I was once looking at a sample of river water under a microscope. I counted 53 parameciums (is it paramecii?).

I always thought that 42 was the answer to life, the universe, and everything, though.

kaukau.gifTo add to the list, the BZP Reference Desk has exactly 53 topics. I certainly hope that the administrators don't add any.

By the way, although 42 is the answer, 53 is the question. Does that sound like a good compromise?

So, basically, the question is 53, and the answer is 42, so the process is -11?

Of course the process is -11

kaukau.gifI might mention that my gym locker number was 53. However, I have had to unpack it recently.

Er.....*runs off to the encyclopedia and Google*

In '53, Freddy Mohler from Muncie, Indiana became the first world champion from that city in soap box derby racing, which was also the first year two brothers placed in the top three (Freddy beat them both).

The 53rd racing of the soap box derby world championships was in 1990, and included a world champion from Washington representing Oregon.

53 is also the sixteenth prime number. The 53rd prime number is 241.

If you ever desire to call Cuba, its international direct dial phone number is 53.

53 is Herbie's racing number.

Diana, Princess of Wales was on the cover of People 53 times.

Evidently the Grinch has been putting up with the Whos for 53 years.

16.23 m is just over 53 feet and was the World Record in triple jump, set by Leonid Shcherbakov from the Soviet Union on the nineteenth of July in 1953.

53 minutes is 3180 seconds.

The 53rd artist on the Rolling Stone top 500 greatest albums ever made is The Birth of Soul: The Complete Atlantic R&B Recordings, 1952-1959 by Ray Charles.

Bill Gates is 53, as is Steve Jobs, Mel Gibson, Whoopi Goldberg, and some other probably important people who I don't know.

The originial "War of the Worlds" movie and Disney's "Peter Pan" were relased into theatres in 1953.

The first sucessful ascent of Mt. Everst was in 1953.

The first colour tv is avaible for sale in 1953 and are sold for around $1,175.

February 22nd is the 53rd day of the year.

I probably just wasted 53 minutes that I could have been applying to doing homework, eating dinner, or studying for midterms, but that's ok, because this was a lot more fun.

kaukau.gifI knew the part about Herbie's number. The rest was quite interesting to read. Thank you.

By the way, The Hubble telescope is 353 miles above the Earth.

That was either a good Google search, Nukaya, or you're head is full of useless information. o.O
