200 – It’s like 300 but cooler!

30 Day Writing Challenge

I was going to say “Why cooler? Cause you can type it on a calculator and flip it and it would read ZOO” and then I was going to post some cat photos, because who doesn’t love cats? Then I remembered this story our Science teacher used to tell us in school –

Three Greek philosophers and an Arab were all staying at the same inn. At dinner the philosophers were debating the number of teeth in the head of a horse. Each philosopher mustered his arguments and debated the subject endlessly. The first philosopher insisted that horses have 32 teeth; the second was convinced that horses have 40 teeth; the third insisted on 48.

The philosophers called upon the Arab to act as judge of their debate. After listening to all of the arguments the Arab asked for permission to leave the room. After a brief hiatus the Arab returned and solemnly pronounced in favour of the second philosopher. All of the philosophers sprang to their feet and demanded to know which of his arguments had swayed him. The Arab responded “Arguments? I went back into the stable and counted”.

Anyway, I digress. But since this is the internet, there’s no reason why I can’t make a 300 reference AND put up a cat photo. So here –

There truly is nothing you can't find on the internet!

And all this to say, this is my 200th post and I’m going to celebrate it with a nap. Happy weekend my dear wordpress family! See you tomorrow! 😀

Photo I stole off the internet while looking for something cool to celebrate.

    Was the arab, as a small kid, raised in China? And was he the same kid, who claimed that the emperor who called the bluff about the emperor’s clothes? 😀

  4. Congratulations on reaching your 200th post! I like your story about the philosophers. It reminds me of the question regarding the definition of a philosopher. “A philosopher is like a blind man, in a dark room, looking for a black cat that isn’t there!”. Cheers, Kevin
