August is winding down and the moon is full! Oh wait that was three weeks ago. Looks like the GM’s missed the Full Moon and spent the whole month banging hookers and turning tricks, respectively. Which is really a shame because this month’s run is lucky number 69! Here are some things you may not have known about every hasher’s favorite integer: 69 is a semiprime and the smallest strobogrammatic number which is not a palindrome . If you add up the divisors of 69 (1+3+23+69) you get 96. This is also known as the “friendzone number.” I wonder if Sixty-Nine has any other symbolic connotations? It’s also the run where our favorite ex-GM SIX KUAI SHORT will return briefly to Beijing, to pick up his shorts and briefs. On On!
