    To celebrate E.T.A. Hoffmann's birthday, here's his best known and most influential work, a horror story - or "dark fairy tale" - called "The Sandman" (published 1816) which Sigmund Freud later used as a lead and an example when he wrote "The Uncanny" (published in 1919). It's a timeless, yet...

    Take it as it was conceived (with lots of tongue in at least four cheeks): And here's a more palatable version of the general idea: Most people are more familiar with version "4" ... but "1" appeared alongside "9" on the iconic White Album (I own the original vinyl ...). M.

    28 is a so-called "perfect" number: Add up all of its proper divisors except itself (i.e. take its "aliquot sum" - nice little piece of Latin there), and you get the number itself: 1+2+4+7+14=28 A good reason for a perfect turnout, everyone :) (N.B.
