175

The 175th Carnival of the Vanities has appeared at Blueprint for Financial Prosperity; it's the latest edition of the first — and still the oldest — weekly blog compilation.

Paragraph 175 was the section of the German penal code that the Third Reich expanded to wield against homosexual men; persons convicted under 175 wore the infamous pink triangle.

(Does anyone still read these bits of numeric trivia?)

UA Flight 175, Boston to L.A. was the 2nd aircraft to hit the WTC on 9/11.

I look forward to each of the numeric trivia you present. Cheers!

I don't know where you come up with them, but they're wonderful!

June 24th is the 175th day of 2006.

Or something.

See how totally boring this stuff would be if I had to come up with it myself? I've always been horrid with numbers. Please. Save me from myself.
