So I know I'm a bit late but work, and spaghetti night, and the pub, all got in the way. Bastards.
I really like thinking about stuff. Important stuff sometimes, like economics and world hunger and the key to happiness, but usually pointless stuff. My current unimportant question requires a wee bit of back story.
In South Australia, numberplates for the last 30 odd years have been alpha numeric* - 3 letters and 3 numbers. They started off beginning with R, then S, T was only for trailers, U, V, W and X, with Y being for trailers one the Ts ran out. They didn't bother with Zs (don't know why) and once all the Xs had run out, they changed to being an S, then 3 numbers, then 3 letters, now starting with A. But with the old set, ambulances had special AMB ### plates. What I want to know is, did the DMV issue S###AMB plates? Or did they keep them for the new ambulances? I don't think they would have more than 1000 ambulances in South Australia, so surely as one is retired it can give it's rego to another, but if I see a plate with an AMB on it, I'm assuming ambulance, and getting out of the way. But that may just be me. If anyone has an SA plate with the letters AMB, which isn't an ambulance, let me know.
My long term thing I think about a lot is even more pointless. And I've been thinking about it on and off for well over a decade. And you can all help give me even more to think about it.
Step one. Clasp your hands together, with your fingers interlocked.
Step two. Note which thumb is on top, left or right. My left thumb is on top.
Step three. Tell me which it is, as well as if you are left or right handed, and if you are male or female.
Step four. Get the same information from your husbands, kids, parents, neighbours, colleagues and random strangers on the street. Tell me that too.
Step 5. Think about it.
This may seem like the most pointless thing in the world to worry about. It probably is. And although I've been asking people since the beginning of high school which way they clasp, and saying hmm, and then asking if they're left handed or right handed, and then saying hmm again, I've never found a correlation, or written my findings down. But with your help, I will have even more to think about. I may even get to draw a graph.
I like generating graphs.
*P.S. I know all this from observation. I really like number plates.
