192

Danforth Road through Edmond is also known as 192nd Street.

(It was either that or "192 is the sum of ten consecutive primes [5 + 7 + 11 + 13 + 17 + 19 + 23 + 29 + 31 + 37]".)

One way or another, the 192nd Carnival of the Vanities is up for your inspection at Blog d'Ellison, and one might say it's especially protein-rich this time around.

You could have gone with "Year in which Commodus assassinated by a wrestler named Narcissus at the behest of Commodus' concubine, chamberlain and praetortian praefect."

Better perhaps might have been "Number of independent states in the world as recognized by the U.S. State Department." Apparently there are 191 nations in the UN, but Vatican City is not a member.

(Taiwan is not on this state dept. list)

Not that I have a problem with Danforth Road. I was just there night before last to watch my son play clarinet at the high school.

I used "number of UN member nations" for 191, as it happened.
