# 13,000

## Recommended Posts

I was going to do something slightly fancier. I had an idea for a little game to celebrate, but then I quickly realised I can't be bothered and I don't like games unless I'm winning them. I then thought I'd post some interesting facts about the number 13,000 itself such as what it reads as in binary (00110001 00110011 00101100 00110000 00110000 00110000) or what it's hexadecimal value is (0x32c8) but these proved to be a little dull. I moved on to thinking how long it would take you to count to 13,000, but that was equally rubbish when I found out it would only take about three hours. I discovered shortly afterwards that 13,000 is itself a Harshad number, which is an integer that is divisible by the sum of its digits when written in that base.

Slightly more interesting, but it doesn't make for good conversation.

Anyway, I did want to post this to coincide with me being on the forum for 10 years but that passed me by and I wasn't about to post drivel just so I could have another number to add. It was bad enough trying to get 13,000 to sound interesting.

That's it, see you at the next one. I hope 14,000 wields more interesting facts.

I can add another fact about the number 13,000. If you take away 1, it becomes 12,999. Mind = Blown.

I didn't even use the calculator.

ISO 13000 is the international standard requirements for processed unifilled Polytetrafluoroethylene products (whatever that means).

Congratulations.

13,000 bottles of beer on the wall. 13,000 bottles of beer, take one down, pass it around - and that's it. One is more than enough, pisshead.

Well done chum.

Congrats on the 13,000 posts. If you divide the number of years you're a member for which is 10 by the number of posts it comes to 1,300 per year.

Some interesting facts about the year 1,300 are as follows.

A census in Imperial China finds that it has roughly 60 million inhabitants.

Amsterdam is officially declared a city.

Aztec culture starts in Mesoamerica.

I would have done some facts about the number 13,000 but I'm sh*t at maths.

Crying zeros and I'm hearing one one ones.

Congrats, man. You've almost reached my financial debt. Do you wish you had done something differently? And what size shoe are you?

##### Share on other sites

Thanks all. I don't have time to multi-quote or any of that guff so I'll just pick some replies at random and roll with the punches. My shoe size is a ten, Pink Floyd's best album is Animals, pet pigs look like a hassle to keep, I think the Great Wall of China has more than 13,000 bricks but I don't know enough about bricks to dispute it, about seven inches and no complaints.
