I could come up with something amazing as it is 28 twice, but New Scientist Issue 2828 has a feature about 'The Secret Life of Pronouns'. Shouldn't that be in a magazine on English?
Well here's the article, so you can judge for yourself: "The smallest words in our vocabulary often reveal the most about us, including our levels of honesty and thinking style". It's written by James W. Pennebaker, chair of the department of psychology at the University of Texas at Austin.

Time to resurrect this thread after a three-month sabbatical. What better way to do that than looking at the Holt 2831 Single Toilet Roll Holder?
NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I was waiting for 2831 hours to elapse from the time of the previous post. There were less than 17 hours to go! :(
