Maths at: The Number 23

Did you know that:

  • the Earth tilts at 23 degrees on its axis? (Well it's actually closer to 23.5 and degrees are an arbitrary unit of measurement);
  • 2 divided by 3 is 0.666 recurring? (Although if you round it properly it would be 0.667, which is the Devil's next door neighbour);
  • if you rearrange the letters in "The Number Twenty Three" you get "This is all Hogwash"?

Isn't numerology incredible?

This week we watched Joel Schumacher's 23rd film: "The Number 23", starring Jim Carrey. And we ask, perhaps, the most important question of all - was this film actually a secret sequel to Ace Ventura Pet Detective?

We're through the looking glass here people!

 If you're interested in watching The Number 23 then please recondsider watching Paddington (one or two, they're both good.)

Your regulars, Thomas and Ben are joined by Hannah Veale and you can either tickle your eyeballs and/or your ear drums. We're so good to you.
