Australian Alan Jones won the world F1 championship 27 years ago; his number that year was 27; Australian Casey Stoner’s number this year in the world MotoGP championship – which he currently leads – is 27.

I hope you didn’t put the mocka* on him so that he ends up finishing 27th, Tim.
*Did I use that Strine-ism properly? My Aussie china used it once in reference to jinxing a sports team.Posted by andycanuck on 2007 06 25 at 10:07 AM • permalink
‘Put the mockers on’ (Damned close!)
#4, yojimbo, I learned a lot about salvaging books these past two weeks. Electric fan heaters do the job if you can fluff out the pages. Unfortunately, the insurance company will still be paying us $8,500 for the volumes we couldn’t save. They were our best books, of course, the ones we should have had up on the top shelves.
Such is life.
Thank you Tim for posting about Casey Stoner – he’s only 21, and leads the Moto GP by 26 points
Being a huge car and bike racing fan, I just love the way this young Aussie is winning!
As for Aussies – watch out for Marcos Ambrose who’s doing his bit for OZ in the NASCAR

#9 Thanks, egg_. He was talking over the phone, so I typed it phonetically from memory. (Thanks for the site link, too.)Posted by andycanuck on 2007 06 25 at 11:06 AM • permalink
Twenty-seven is my lucky number. I was born on 12/15, my dad always jokingly lied about his age – he said he was 27 of course – and that’s just the tip of the iceburg… lettuce… and tomato… sandwich shop girl scout cookies and cream -Aaaaaah! A word association attack! – corn dogs breath freshener – Aaaaaaaaah!
If you take all the numbers in the Bible, divide by 43 (Richard Petty’s number, he was blasphemously called the “King”), you get 27, which tells us that Casey Stoner is the Antichrist.Posted by dean martin on 2007 06 25 at 06:14 PM • permalink
And I’m 27 years old and if you turn 27 upside down it looks a bit like ‘LZ’, and ‘LZ’ sounds like ‘Lazy, which I am sometimes! Frankly this numerolgical stuff is uncanny.
