30 years since the terrible fall of 1977, ("Deutscher Herbst", German autumn) when the Red Army Faction was on a terrorist rampage. I was a kid then, but I seem to remember the leaden atmosphere of those days.

35 is the minimum age to become Federal President of Germany. For all other officices awarded by a vote, it is 21 ("passive voting right", as we call it).

37 is the atomic number of rubidium.

(Surely not that the construction of the Mt. Palomar telescope is a sad event? :? )

1941: Hitler's Germany invades the USSR, in retrospect the final nail in his coffin. The suffering that resulted from this act is unimaginable.

I thought you would say that - it was hard one to give away.

And now for something completely different:

43 B.C., Publius Ovidius Naso born in Sulmo

43 A.D., the year Britain (except Scotland, of course) was finally conquered by the Romans.

The 47th problem of Euclid is used as a Masonic symbol.

For the benefit of those who may have forgotten their geometry days, the Forty-Seventh Problem is here simply stated; in any right triangle, the sum of the squares of the two sides is equal to the square of the hypotenuse. This is demonstrably true regardless of the length of either side. But in the Problem as diagrammed in the lodge, and for simplicity’s sake it is usually shown with sides the proportions of which are as three, and four units when the hypotenuse, or longest side of the triangle will be as five units. If one draws on paper a line three inches long, and at right angles to it , and joined to one end, a line four inches long, then the line connecting the two ends will be five inches long when the angle is a perfect right angle, or one of ninety degrees. The square of 3 is 9. The square of 4 is 16. The sum of 9 and 16 is 25. The square root of 25 is 5.

There are 48 contiguous states in these United States. And two freakish outliers.
