Xmas Prom, shaves and whimsy

shaves

The office is a-buzz with preparations for tonight's Christmas party - the theme is '1950s High School Prom', and everyone's being mega-cute, shyly asking each other out and messing about with their hair.

The part that's really caught The Sharpener's eye this afternoon, however, is what's going on in the boardroom. We've got hair stylists and make-up technicians beautifying the ladies, while the gents are being taken care of by a crack squad of barbers that Google have sent over. In fact, Google are encouraging our beardy-faced fellas to cavort in front of their screens and share their photos with the #LoveFromGoogle hashtag - all part of the fun, innit?

Frisk #073

unpocket

Stone me, it’s Frisk #073. And 73 is a very frisky little number – it’s a Canadian pizza chain, the atomic number of tantalum, and the number of minutes each side gets in a curling competition to complete all of their throws. Also, according to Sheldon Cooper in The Big Bang Theory episode ‘The Alien Parasite Hypothesis’, 73 is ‘the best number’ as it’s the 21st prime, with 21 being the product of 7 and 3, and it mirrors 37, the 12th prime (12 being the mirror of 21), and 73 in binary is 1001001, which is a palindrome. So, there’s that.

Frisk #072

tinitell

Ah. So. It’s Frisk #072. We always knew it would come to this. Your body is 72% water, and when you’re at rest your heart beats around 72 times a minute. In typography, point sizes are measured in multiples of 1/72 of an inch. It’s the usual par for an 18-hole golf course, the number of languages spoken at the Tower of Babylon, the sum of four consecutive primes, and the number of degrees in Fahrenheit considered to be room temperature. What a busy number.

Frisk #071

Goodness gracious, it’s Frisk #071. Ready for some 71 facts? OK, Treadstone Seventy-One is the fictional CIA department that programmed Jason Bourne, the character of Doña Clotilde in the Mexican sitcom El Chavo del Ocho lived in apartment no.71, the Irish Rail 071 Class is a diesel locomotive, and the SR-71 Blackbird is a USAF long-range stealth reconnaissance aircraft that flies at over 2,200mph. Crikey.
