333

333? Yes, this is the 333rd post on this blog. And just as I was starting to prepare it, “The Number Of The Beast” by Iron Maiden was playing on the radio – referring to 666, of course, often attributed to the “devil” or the “antichrist” (not that I’d believe in stuff like that, of course); hence the image at the side. Quite a coincidence… :D

More about this nonsense number mysticism can be found in Wikipedia, of course.

“3-3-3”? Wasn’t there something in history class at school? Well, at least in German, there’s a mnemonic going “3-3-3, bei Issos Keilerei” (“3-3-3, at … … barney”), where the two-syllable location of that battle doesn’t follow directly from the rhyme, and I wasn’t able to remember that back then… it was at Issus, one of Alexander the Great’s most important battles.

Well, I’ll have three schnappses now – y’know, numbers with all identical digits are called “Schnapszahlen” (schnapps numbers) in German…

    @Hans: Die Schnäpse waren nur “virtuell” und die Zeit entsprechend vordatiert. :mrgreen: Ich wollte doch nicht riskieren, doppelt zu sehen – 333333 Beiträge wären dann doch zuviel. ;)
