Just the other day, revolutionary blog YAYOS reached one thousand views. I cannot even begin to comprehend the massive number of readers that we have acquired, largely because I can never remember what comes after thirteen (fwelve, maybe?). Anyway, to commemorate this historic milestone, I have compiled some fun facts about the number 1000. 

1000 is:

  • The number of elephants used to transport the building materials for the Taj Mahal.
  • Represented in Roman Numerals by M, or alternatively DCCLLLLXXXXVVVVVVVVIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII.
  • The year in which gunpowder was invented in China, an advanced country still unable to discover the fork.
  • The number of words equal to a single picture. All you have to do is submit your thousand-word essay to any museum, and you’re free to go in and take anything you want. Nobody will mind, those are just the rules.
  • The number of jelly beans in the jar at your dentist’s office. That iPod Nano is as good as yours.
  • The number of title canines in Disney’s upcoming Dalmatians sequel.
  • Not an odd number, but still feels a little weird sometimes, just like anybody else.
  • Written as 1×10^3 in scientific notation, if you’re into that kind of thing, baby.
  • The number of years in a millennium, a time measurement named after the popular Backstreet Boys album.
  • The total number of islands in an archipelago famous for its delicious salad dressing.
  • The price, in dollars, for one night of pleasure you’ll never regret. Just call 785-273-0325. (Please do!)
  • The cost of GOB Bluth’s suit, allegedly.
  • Not a bad price for a human kidney, and the best part is that they’re practically everywhere!
  • 1000 times more than anytime someone has ever said that they’re proud of me.

And there you have it, fwelve mind-stimulating facts honoring our first 1000 views, of which only 439 came from my father. Thank you all for your continued support.

Forever yours,

Dan Fitzpatrick
