It’s Twosday, two years and two months after I first started this thing, and this is the 200th post.
Past that, I got nothin’ to say, so here’s a fun image with one of my favorite characters cheerily celebrating 200 –
Ack! Wrong 200. That’s not exactly sunshiny and cheerful. Let’s try again…
Better. There’s even a couple shots of Bats smiling. Who woulda thunk it?
Thanks to everyone who hangs out here.

Here’s another notable 200 to mark the event:
I’m on 499 now.
499 whacked out posts. All because of you. I don’t know what I’ll do for the 500th. Probably something anti-climactic.
On your post – congrats on 500, dude! – you wrote “.. like Nightsky, we celebrate by playing with numbers.” Well then… let’s play with some numbers so much even Einstein would get ticked.
This 200th post came on a Twosday exactly 2 years and two months (minus 2 days for each of the 2 years, or 4 (2+2) days) after I started it in 2012 (two 2s, for the 2nd time this century, the other being 2002, which only had 2 actual integers), with 2 images of 2 of my fave comic characters (the 2nd image has 2 heroes), was posted at 2:12 PM,* and as of this writing, has 2 comments (or a comment and a pingback. Same diff). And I’m writing this 2 calendar days after I posted (I’m up past midnight again). Posted on Oct 21… 10/21. 1+0+2+1 = 4, or 2 + 2 (or 2 x 2… that’s 2 ways of arriving at the same sum). Add in the year and we get 10/21/2014, or 1+0+2+1+2+0+1+4 = 11, or 2 ones, which added together = 2. I could probably come up with more if I thought about it some. Such as 2014 is the 2nd year this century with 4 unique integers, the last 3-integer year being 2012.
Also 2 images of Flash** on the first cover, and 2 images of Batman smiling on the 2nd.
Yeah, this is how my mind works. Sick of numbers yet?
* Or maybe 2:11, which has a 2 and 2 ones. The clock was rolling to 2:12 just as a posted. I didn’t even notice the time til I was halfway through the post.
** Addendum no. 2 (!) – That 200th issue of Flash had the number “200” appear 200 times throughout the book. I tried Googling it to confirm that my memory is correct, but I got a ton of unrelated stuff, and Zappa’s 200 Hotels. Go fig.
“Sick of numbers yet?”
“Sick” is a strong word. Let’s just say I’m dizzy from the numbers. Yeah, dizzy. And the dizziness has not yet advanced to the “get sick” stage yet.
But seriously, that’s . . . going deep into the numbers, bruh. It also partially explains something I was wondering, which was why you didn’t post on October 22nd.
I just messed up your “two comments” thing. How can I ever make it up to you?
10/22/2014? the math didn’t add up. 1+0+2+2+1+4 = 10 = 1+0 = 1, and 1+0+2+2+2+0+1+4 = 12 = 1+2 = 3. Although they are the TWO numbers around the number TWO. Heh.
Seriously, I gave a bit of thought to the math before posting, but most of what I wrote up there I came up with on the fly while writing it.
P.S. Any date in October 2014 is gonna have at least one 2 and two 0s, so you get “200” regardless
Ok, I’ll try to stop with this now..
Do you remember where you where on February 2, in 2002, two seconds after 2:02?
Two words for you – Day/night?
AM – at work
PM – sleeping.
2 answers for ya.
Round these parts, 2:10 pm is known as 14:02.
Er, I meant 2:02:02 pm is known as 14:02:02.
By the way, the stroke of midnight is 0:00:00.
It might be useful to know that if you ever get caught in the alternate reality of an East Asian horror flick.
