I no longer have class.

They seek me with thimbles, they seek me with care;
They pursue me with forks and hope;
They threaten my life with a railway-share;
They charm me with smiles and soap.
I am CJ Curry, the Boojum.

Welcome back to the CJ Curry Experience. The most humid experience since Delhi.

You all impress me. You impress me a lot. But that doesn't mean reality TV is good.

POST 37: THE FORGOTTEN POST

It's my favourite number! 37! So the entire post is a tribute to the number 37. Here are some redeeming features about the number 37:
  • In degrees Celsius, 37 is the average human body temperature. A degree and a half higher, and it's hyperthermia; a degree and a half lower, and it's hypothermia.
  • 37 is the atomic number of rubidium. Why the hell rubidium is an element is anyone's guess.
  • There are 37 slots on European Roulette. 00 is only used in American Roulette. I reckon European wins. Just.
  • The (very misleadingly named) Interstate 37 runs between San Antonio, Texas and Corpus Christi, Texas. I shall immediately donate my time to anyone with a petition saying "Change this highway to 'Intrastate 37'". Misuse of English irks me, except when it's Engrish.
  • There are 37 birds outside my window right about now.
  • If you read out loud two haikus, then say simply "it is done", you have spoken 37 syllables.
  • Travelling 37 hours into the future is as simple as adding a day and a half, then an extra hour. So, from right about now (7:24p), 37 hours into the future is 8:24a on Tuesday. Cool, I'll still be asleep.
  • I once found a packet of Pods with 37 Pods. I decided not to write in about it, because it was just nihilistically cool.
  • My clock ticks 37 times per minute.
  • Shakespeare wrote 37 plays.

Try again. Wiki says it's 36.8 ± 0.7. It's closer to 37 than 36.4.
