Just watching an episode an Zach's apartment number is 320

320 is a Leyland number, where 320 = x^y + y^x (2^8 + 8^2 or 256 + 64)
Or maybe they picked 320 for Zack's apartment because it's a perfect square, just like him . . . :wink: :lol:

Ooops, my bad! Sorry - I was thinking of 324 :roll: In my defence, I was p*ssed as a newt last night as had quite a few sherries on NY's Day - had a shocking hangover this morning :twisted:

YAY it's snowing on us during our annual snow weekend! With actual live snow! In flakes! It's covered everything (also the place I rented has a garage so that does not include my car).
Outmaneuvered on all counts, I opt to change the rules.

I bought a new car! The Honda CR-V. I'm going to be sad to say goodbye to my little Focus though. I've driven it for 15 years!

Neil Gaiman has Tweeted what is definitly my favourite quote of the year so far:


Neil Gaiman @neilhimself

The zombie tit menace has never been properly communicated until now.


Great tits are killing birds and eating their brains. Climate change may be to blame.

The question is, is the new bird seed food plan your goal for 2019? perhaps throwing in some bread and hot meals for a more balanced diet might help
