So what does the number 187 mean?
Wikipedia: 187 is a slang term for the crime of murder; it refers to Section 187 of the California Penal Code, which defines the crime of murder. The number is commonly pronounced by reading the digits separately as “one-eight-seven”, or “one-eighty-seven”, rather than “one hundred eighty-seven”.
The Year 187 (CLXXXVII) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Julian calendar. At the time, it was known as the Year of the Consulship of Quintius and Aelianus (or, less frequently, year 940 Ab urbe condita). The denomination 187 for this year has been used since the early medieval period, when the Anno Domini calendar era became the prevalent method in Europe for naming years.

It’s also the record number of daily views that this blog has ever received. Yesterday my blog had 187 views, breaking the previous record (from December 2009) by 70.
I know that for some bloggers and big time websites that is nothing, but it means a lot to me. To everybody whose eyeballs land on my silly little blog from time to time, I thank you. From the bottom of my heart. I’ll try to keep writing and *ahem* stealing things from other sites that I hope will entertain and occasionally enlighten you.
Please don’t hesitate to leave a comment, even if you don’t like what I have to say. I welcome all comments except for spam and other gross by-products.
Thank you, again. This really means a lot to me.
