Why so Spanish today? Just a little something extra foreign to celebrate Wee Man's half-German heritage and Italian birth. If my math doesn't fail me (which it did almost do in high school), Wee Man is a spritely 39-years-old today. Numerologically speaking, the number 39 is significant for the following fun things:
1. It's considered to be an unlucky number in Afghanistan due to its association with pimps. Then again, what is considered to be lucky in Afghanistan?
2. Allegedly, the words "mischievousness" and "impurity" are used 39 times in The Bible. Trip out.
3. It's the atomic number of yttrium. Hooray!
4. It's the number of tortilla chips served in every side order at Wee Man's Chronic Tacos in Redondo Beach, California.
Okay, that last is total bullshit, but give it a few days and maybe it will make its way onto Wikipedia to become yet another "Interfact" that everyone blindly believes because the Interweb says it must be so. Happy Birthday, Wee Man!
