Been Thinking About The Number 7

23 Jul

Ask most people to choose a number between 1 and 10 and they invariably  choose 7.

There were 7 Dwarfs.

There were 7 in Blakes 7, and the Magnificent 7 which was based on the film: The Seven Samurai.

There are 7 deadly sins.

7 is the number of balls chosen in the national lottery (Including the bonus ball).

7 squared is 49, the number of balls in the national lottery.

7  is a prime number, and a lucas number and is equal to 2 cubed – 1, making it a Mersenne prime.

Speaking about 7 squared (49):

Tanh 49 + 6 = 7, as does ( sinh 49 / cosh 49 ) +6   –  (For all the Mathematicians reading this, Rock on Charlie Eppes)

There were 7 wonders of the ancient world.

A hexagon has 7 – 1 sides.

There are 7 different ways of linking 7 – 3  hexagons together.

When you reach 7 years old you can open a National Savings Bank account.

There was Shakespeare’s Seven Ages of Man.

Been gardening in the sun for 7 hours, perhaps that’s why, think I will go and have a lie down in a darkened room 🙂

    7 days in a week. There were 7 people on the bus into Leicester yesterday, until I boarded, that made 8, but it was OK; 1 got off at the next stop!

    Thanks for the info, my life has been truly enhanced for knowing all that. Now I think I’ll go for a little lie down. . .
