Your fortune is sweet as a cookie

Speculate to Accumulate

To find an oasis you have first to walk through a desert


I’ve had to munch through many a fortune cookie to amass the collection of fortune cookie fortunes I now have in a small jar. The things I do for this blog.

This is the first in an occasional series where I draw three fortune cookie fortunes from the fortune cookie fortune jar. The first fortune cookie fortune above was the first fortune cookie fortune drawn from the fortune cookie fortune jar, I kid you not. The second, the second, and the third the third.


Today’s Random Number generated from RANDOM.ORG is:

91

91 is a Centred Nonagonal Number

91 is the international dialling code to India

91 is the total of cents of a US dollar, if one had one of each of the coins with a denomination less than a dollar (penny, nickel, dime, quarter, and half dollar) although I’ll have to take Wikipedia’s word for that as I was lost after penny.

91 (rather M91) is a barred spiral galaxy in the Coma Berenices constellation (that was a new one on me too!). The Milky Way is also a barred spiral galaxy, and the Coma Berenices constellation also houses the Coma Berenices galaxy, which is a faint satellite of the Milky Way.

A Milky Way chocolate bar has 456 calories. 456 is a Centred Pentagonal Number.

456 minus 91 equals 365.

365 as well as being the number of days in a normal year, is also a Centred Square Number.

In 1991 the USSR ceased to exist. If you counted all of the letters from the names of the countries that made up the former Soviet Union and got 91 you’d be slightly out, but it would have been a fabulous coincidence if this had been so, wouldn’t it?

Pentagons are five sided shapes; squares are four sided shapes; and nonagons are nine sided shapes. Just having fun with numbers here. You may discount this one.


Today’s Random Colour generated from RandomColour.Com is:

rgb(184, 227, 191) #b8e3bf

How spooky is that? Well, not really. It is random, after all.


This has been my oasis in my current blogging desert. I’ve speculated to accumulate. May your fortune be as sweet as a cookie!

  2. Love the numbers, I remember 1991 as on new years day I realised the number could be reversed, it was a real revelation to the 6 year old me!

    1. Links between numbers can be fascinating, MrsCraft, and patterns in numbers even more so! I think that and 2002 are the only reversible years in our lifetime! 😀
