A milestone, a King and a drinking game

In keeping with the historical theme of this blog, I would like to celebrate a month of blogging (30 Days) and 300 page views for the site. Ok, I lied, the thirty days was yesterday and we are well over 300 page views but I really didn’t feel like writing today so this celebration will have to do!

I hope that you have all enjoyed the site and the drinks and the history so far. I have enjoyed the writing and also learning even more snippets of useless knowledge. Notice I am not talking about the drinking at all! It’s still weird to type posts and send them into the blogosphere not knowing who’s reading it (I do receive data from Blogger about page views, referral sites and India and Russia, I know you’re out there and reading this) or what they think. So, if you have any comments, feel free to use the comment section, email us or DM us on Twitter.

I am very thankful to my friends both local and far away who have given support. THI is still growing and hopefully by the summer it will be closer to my vision of informational as well as entertaining. In the meantime, let’s drink!

300 is, as numbers go pretty interesting. Per wiki:

It is a triangular number and the sum of a pair of twin primes (149 + 151), as well as the sum of ten consecutive primes (13 + 17 + 19 + 23 + 29 + 31 + 37 + 41 + 43 + 47). Fascinating.

Three hundred is also the lowest possible Fair Isaac credit score and the highest score you can get in a bowling game. But for today I am more interesting in a drinking game regarding the movie “300”. For this game, get settled in with friends, hit the play button and anytime someone says Sparta, Spartans or Aahooo, take a drink! Simple enough right. Let’s run a short (1:11) preview:

Well, how did you do??? Keep in mind the full movie is 117 minutes long.
But the weekend is long…and practice makes perfect!

In other milestones today…
