[color=#000000ost_uid0]This is the hundreth topic on the new board, and will be a celebration of the number 100. Tell us about the time you were playing cricket and made a century. Tell us about the time you were watching cricket and somebody else made a century...or the time you scored 100 (or multiples thereof) in Asteroids...or got a $100 cheque.

See how many ways 100 can be represented in various languages and numerical systems. I don't know if Mayan pictograms can be represented here, but we can describe them. ("It's sort of a squiggly bar under a dot.")

Zeke, could this thread be locked at 100 posts? Just a thought.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]You know, 10 'Top 10' lists would contain exactly 100 listed things. I for one find that more than slightly scary.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Eh, it's only dalmations for crying out loud. They're certainly not the most intelligent breed of dog by a [iost_uid0]loooooong[/iost_uid0] way.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0][bost_uid0]I agree![/bost_uid0] Don't even kid around about such a
terrible thing, even if you're just talking about
cartoon dalmations.
:madder:
And there was once this really good heavy metal
song by [bost_uid0]Body Count[/bost_uid0] called [bost_uid0][uost_uid0]C-Note[/uost_uid0][/bost_uid0] (which is also
a slng word for a [bost_uid0]hundred dollar bill[/bost_uid0]) that I used to
listen to all the time back when I was in high school.

I'm sorry, I didn't know this forum was one to take things too seriously . Not trying to upset you Fatmat, but you do realise that's exactly what Cruella De-vil planned to do with the dalmations if she hadn't been foiled.

Still, I've edited that message now, so nobody else will get upset. :smile:

I await my 100 beatings.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]The sum of the first 3 primes is 10. The sum of the first 3^2 primes is 100.

2^100 * 100^2 + 1 is prime.[/colorost_uid0]
