    Final day of this year's SiJy challenge - thanks so much for participating and hanging in there; and to those who found it impossible to see this through, thanks for your contributions as well! And if you want to ponder "final days", I really, really recommend "Good Omens" (by Neil Gaiman and...

    Okay, a chemistry reference (Copper, Cu, is element number 29), but with a twist because, frankly, in spite of being truely over-the-top, this made me laugh (and it manages to stay informative, too): 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. I could have used this earlier ... 28 is not...

    If you research "22" on YouTube, you naturally bump into Taylor Swift; that's understandable, but not very inspiring ... Lily Allen is quite a bit more worth listening to ... (at least her last album, "No Shame", is; I didn't investigate further, it's not my usual listening material). But...

    I know it's somewhat controversial to introduce one of these challenges so soon after the last rund, but after April's more lenient approach, some were calling for the "real thing", and since we all need at least something to look forward to, there's no reason why we shouldn't indulge ourselves...

We have a broken rhythm now anyway, so we'll see what will establish itself as a viable solution in the future (I...

    It's that time of year again ...

This time, we're hitting summer in the northern hemisphere and mid-winter in the...

But the stuff I intend to keep, I also intend to use. I'd love to have the opportunity for some hardcore...
