The old 27 topic is so 27 minutes ago. Telling us that you listened to a song 27 times, or did 27 math problems for homework? OUT.

For 27-2.0, this topic is not to be used for the following things:
  • Personal things - I got a 27% on my spelling quiz!
  • Controlled variables - I counted to 27!
  • Anything that, frankly, you know that nobody else will care about - 27! 27! 27! Woo!!

What should be in this topic?
  • Al-related 27s (as long as they don't fall into one of the above groups)
  • Coincidental 27s in films, TV shows, and books - this means "On SNL tonight, they had a sketch where they said they wanted to buy a 27-foot Christmas tree"; not "Homer said 'D'oh!' 27 times tonight!"
  • ...and that's it

Let's make the 27 topic something to be proud of! Bring it back to a time when it meant something. The old topic quickly became a shadow of its former self. Let's not let that happen again.

In conclusion? 27.

To start the 27's...
On the Bowery Ballroom TMBG concert webcast (filmed on April 27th 2000), the file is named 27- this is NOT controlled, and is perfect!

I was there. 8)

(I apologize for not having a nice relevant 27 to add with this post, but hey, there was a WOWAY member present at the event in question, so I'm just adding a footnote to Mecca's offering 8) )

In an episode of The Simpsons, Lisa is having a Math fantasy, and one of the things in the backround is a 27. All of the math symbols spring to life and say something about themselves (often a play on words) indiviudaly. The 27 springs to life and shouts out "27!" You kind if have to see it to find it funny, I guess.

The ultimate answer of life, the universe, and everything is 27.

Just bolded some of Anth's quotes for emphasis.
Oh and here's a funny coincidence: the bolded list? Before the 3 27's, there are 27 words (counting the term "27" as a word).
EDIT: I'm going to an Art of the Beatles exhibit at this art museum today- I'm going to travel 27.6 miles (technically a 28, but cool nonetheless)

On my bicycletrip this morning , I saw a cow with an electronic device around his neck. That device , used for keeping record of this cow , had number 27 on it. He won't need a therapist. ;)
