Yes thats right folks its the 100th post!

(The big C is the Roman numeral for 100)

Some interesting facts about the number 100:

100 = 10x10

To add up all the numbers between 1 and 100 you need to do 100/2 then write the answer out twice so

100/2 = 50

5050 is what all the numbers between 1 and 100 add up to (also works for 1 to 1000, 1 to 10000 etc.)

The word Decimate comes from a roman practice of selecting 1 in 10 men in a legion and having their comrades kill them. (not strictly a 100 fact but its 10 and that kinda works)

Anyways I'm sick but good news!

I cut off the sickness beard yesterday, so I'm on the way back.

In an interesting side note I once heard that ancient egyptian physicians wouold shave off the hair on their patients when they began to treat them. When the treatment came to an end they would shave them again, weigh the hair and based on that determine their fee...

Until next time...
