Perhaps you'd enjoy watching them on the Sony LMD-1530W monitor.

Or you could watch 1531, a 2010 Mexican TV movie about the apparitions of the Virgin of Guadalupe. Here's the trailer on YouTube.

But if Mexico isn't your idea of an exotic destination, you could try Lowestoft. And running for a couple of miles south of the town, you'll find the B1532.

1533 is palindromic in binary: 10111111101

It shares this property with, amongst others, the current year: 2015 is 11111011111 in binary.

Last August, the long distance motorcyclist "IronBoltBruce" covered the 1534-mile distance from Miami Beach, Florida to Del Rio, Texas in 22 hours and 1 minute. The pollution he experienced during the ride was enough to turn his white beard black.

And if you've got a long journey to navigate in North America you might consider the Tomtom VIA 1535 TM.

Why not download one of these 1536 x 864 desktop wallpapers from WallpaperFX?

For the simple reason that you might prefer paint to wallpaper, that's why! Such as this Mineral Red 1537 paint.

And an example of such a man (who preferred paint to wallpaper) is Italian painter Gian Paolo Lomazzo, who was born in 1538.

I doubt whether he ever painted walls, though. Certainly not the medieval city walls of Chester, which are a major attraction for visitors to the city. And another attraction is Chester racecourse, with its 1539 Restaurant and Bar. And we're back to booze again!

Didn't Chester Racecourse hold its first race on 9th February 1540?

Other things you can buy in the Chester Racecourse's 1539 Restaurant include various coffees, and another place you can buy coffees is at 1541 Coffee in College Station, Texas.

Strangely, College Station appears not to have a train station.

Strange indeed. But a place that does have colleges and a station (albeit a mile out of the city) is Cambridge. One of these is Magdalene College, which was founded in 1542.
