Things I learned today


#4886

Ronnie O’Sullivan is a grandfather.


#4887

When did Ronnie find out?


#4888

:confused:


#4889

Andy Murray has a knighthood, did not know that


#4890

The origin of how we write our numbers relates to how many angles there are in each figure.
0 has no angles, 1 has one, 2(z) has two etc.
This lad explains it properly (around 22.40)


#4891

That fucking woo woo woo, the cunts doing it should be shot.


#4892

This gets very interesting


#4893

Things I learned yesterday - Frank Murphy is no longer Cork Secretary,


#4894

That would be a great story if it was in anyway true at all, which of course it isn’t.


#4895

Go on…


#4896

Go on…


#4897

Come on man.


#4898

Have you the numbers to back that up?


#4899

If there are no angles in a 0 how many angles are there in an 8


#4900

Much appreciated. I generally believe the best in a man until I discover the worst. He’s dead to me now.


#4901

8 the way he writes it


#4902

Balderdash


#4903

Look at the state of fucking 9 sure. He literally drew on a squiggly bit to get up to 9. And the two lines through the seven.


#4904

And a half line at the end of the 5 for the craic too. If they were going to come up with the numbers based on how many angles they could fit in you’d have thought they could have had more creative designs


#4905

Aye, but I don’t think dogmatic adherence to actual angles was the point, assuming there is historic basis etc.
