Saint of the Day: Raymond Nonnatus was a Catalonian monk who incurred the wrath of the Tunisians for preaching about Christianity. He was sentenced to death but was granted a reduced sentence, and had his mouth padlocked shut instead.
Nicholas Ralph's Numbers: Game 6 - The first "perfect" number. Its factors are 1, 2, and 3. And 6 = 1+2+3. (Although this doesn't change its perfection, 6 = 1x2x3, also.)
Lucky animal: Highland Cattle.
Unlucky food: You know those pre-prepared vegetables that you can buy from Marks and Spencer, like
carrots that have been peeled and cut into sticks on your behalf by some penniless student in a dismal factory
near Colchester for minimum-wage-per-hour and then sold back to you for about ten times the price of a
normal, unhacked carrot at your local greengrocer? Because, obviously, it takes so long to peel
and chop a carrot? You know what I'm talking about? Yeah, anyway...those.
