Lot 3... this is a very early membership, dating back to 2001 (yes madam, that's AD, not BC). Would someone like to open the bidding? We begin with a starting price of $25...
Posted by Caz... (# 3026) on :
Ach, go on with ya. I'll give you $25...
Posted by Little Miss Methodist (# 4367) on :
I suspect all these numbers will soon go out of my price range, but may as well give it a try...

I'm bidding $30

Posted by Jenny Ann (# 3131) on :
I'll go $35.

But only because Sine priced me out of being able to get 24.

$100 is nothing for a number this cool!

Herod the Great became king of Judaea in 37 BC and Nero was born in 37 AD!

Herod the Great? Nero? Pah!

#37 is Casey Stengel's number, retired after he led the New York Yankees to 10 American League pennants and 7 World Series wins in 12 years. Stengel was one of baseball's greatest-ever managers.

#37 is the symphony Mozart mostly didn't write. Only the introduction is his; the rest was written by Michael Haydn.

#37 is the sonnet in Sidney's "Astrophil and Stella" with the marvelous puns on Penelope Rich's name.

Do I hear $109 for this prime number?
Posted by LeRoc (# 3216) on :
You hear it ($109).
