    Walter Oobleck keeps coming back...or going, and going, and going

    No...I'm from the Milky Way galaxy, sun solar system, planet earth, North American continent, Upper Peninsula of the State of Michigan...Houghton County...I'd give you the lat and long but I don't want a missile strike while I'm sleeping...that'd be like, so annoying. I'm a Yooper...
    Yeah, that's pretty wild....Japan, Jesus...this that the other.
    What would we do if every seven years we let the land lie fallow? A special prime year?

    You are correct. Jesus died in his prime time , at 33 and the 33rd prime number is 137. A fundamental constant of our Universe is 1/137 (but I think it slowly changes over billions of years).

    I loved it, even though I had to shake it out of my head! I'm already a compulsive person and this story got under my skin in the same way Poe's 'The Raven' did. While I'm at it...Graduation Afternoon devastated me. I remember absently staring at the wall when I finished it. Wonderful storytelling in both cases.
