Usually keeping this newsletter weekly is easy.
It is a routine. This past week has been anything but.
I wasn’t tired. I was just uninspired. The line can be thin but I think people often lose inspiration and fail to nail things but they believe its because they’re weary that they let things slide…
So perhaps ironically, rather than wrack more a more weary than regular brain for an inspiring intro, I thought to take a look at relevant facts around Nº111.
- The atomic number of the element roentgenium (Rg).
- The chemical compound 1,1,1-Trichloroethane is a chlorinated hydrocarbon that was used as an industrial solvent with a trade name “Solvent 111”.
- The emergency telephone number in New Zealand & a non-emergency medical public helpline operating in England and Scotland
- It is the lowest positive integer requiring six syllables to name in American English, or seven syllables (including “and”) in Canadian and British English.
- Occasionally it is referred to as “eleventy-one”, as read in The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien.
- Great Western Railway Pacific locomotive 4-6-2 111 The Great Bear was designed by George Jackson Churchward in 1908. The locomotive was rebuilt into a Castle Class engine in 1924 and was later renamed Viscount Churchill. The numbers 111 remained until she was scrapped in July 1953. (fun fact I have a 611 also named after a train engine)
- In Pakistani history, Pakistan Army’s 111 Brigade is notorious for being used for staging the coups to overthrow the elected governments in order to impose martial law.
I hope you enjoyed this random 111 trivia. ; ) Their is some inspiration in the radness section! I’ll enjoy the rest of my time here in Griffin, Ga visiting family. I’m back in Amsterdam Saturday & looking forward to getting back in the game Monday! ✌️
