Dale, 'Nineteen' was from 20 years ago. Does that count for nothing?

WoZ, we also have Heinz dogs Upover.

I wonder which column this would have belonged in on the old site?

Allen, If Mel is allowing nonintegers, I’m going to have to go with 1/9 = .1111111111111111111111 . . . . with its infinite number of ones, which in my view will do the job much more efficiently than the lone ‘1’ that I offered above and certainly better than the much more exhilarating and distinctive string of threes (with all its curls and character) produced by 1/3.

I ALMOST agree with you, Ken. But, I have decided to withdraw my former vote and vote instead for 2/9: .222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222 . . . . Doesn't that look like the string of Zs that is used in cartoons to indicate snoring? How much more nondescript can you get than a number that bores itself to sleep? *G*

Allen, By Jove, I think you’ve got it! That one is so nondescript, I’ve got to take a nap.
