RA 15042699

Do you know what this number is.

Here's a small competition. There's no prize apart from the huge amount of satisfaction you'll get from knowing that you were not beaten by my challenge.

To some people this number represents genius, some pure unadulterated bliss. I am one of those people.

The number again is:

RA 15042699

Can you tell me what it means?

Try not to google it, you'd only be cheating yourself now!

Ok I googled it. But no, I don't think I'd have gotten it anyway. Interestingly enough it served up a zebrafish protein sequence involved in neuron signalling so technically I could argue that the number could represent genius? No? Worth a try!

darwin - you read my blog and you know quite a bit about me. Do you honestly think I'd have the faintest clue about "zebrafish protein sequence involved in neurin signalling"? Unless of course, it's the name of a Muse album. I'm still wondering who might be the winner of this, Lanetop is my favourite.

It's Sgt Bilko's right...

Rhythmic Diaspora said...

Well done - you win a night out with my brother!

Tairq said...

What... no sister? Ah shame that... Will still take the offer though.

Rhythmic Diaspora said...

Tairq - I know you're an imposter. You spelt your name wrong

Tariq said...

I am so ashamed... mother would be so disappointed... By the way did you manage to check out the Yo Sushi at Whitelys in bayswater (with the SL head chef)... think I made the comment as "T"

Rhythmic Diaspora said...

tariq - you've got me incredibly confused, please get in touch!

Tariq said...

Sorry mate was refering to a comment I left on your post titled "Americans, kids, sushi and sandwiches" - think it was a November post (I left the comment as "T")... anyhoo you mentioned Yo Sushi so as an interesting factoid I thought I'd let you know that the head chef at Yo Sushi is a Sri Lankan by the name of Kanthan, he trains all the sushi chefs for Yo Sushi and you can find him at Whitelys in Bayswater... thoroughly likeable chap...

Just thought you'd like to know :)

Btw did you really find Sgt Bilko that funny?

Rhythmic Diaspora said...

tariq - thanks, it was just that you share a name with someone else and i thought you were him. Quite a coincidence. I haven't checked out the YO S in Whiteleys yet but I'll be sure to next time I'm there. As for Bilko, yes, I think he's the master of all comedies. So much of it was Phil Silvers ad libbing and improvising and just amazingly performed.

Tariq said...

Master of all comedies... hmm not sure I'd agree with you there but his show was infinitely funnier than 90% of the rubbish that gets passed as comedy these days...

btw the youtube drum skills link you left on one of your posts was amazing... the juggling while keeping a beat was mindblowing

Rhythmic Diaspora said...

Fair enough Tariq, variety is the spice of life and all that!

I was amazed by that drum vid too, it's one thing to do all those "drumnastics" but the guy is actually a great drummer too.

Thanks for reading my blog.

Now that you mention it just wanted to say that yours is one of the better written blogs with an SL flavour to it. Yours, Indi's and Ravana's are my must reads.. ok enough fawning...

Speaking of drumming of the highest order there are some great links on Youtube of Terry Bozzio playing a crazy solo and playing Zappa's "black page"

here's the link to the solo:

Blimey - Thanks very much for the compliment Tariq, that's really nice of you to say so. I'll check out the Bozzio links too.
