1186 - Baldwin V, the boy king of Jerusalem is killed by his mother, Sybilla after she discovers he has contracted leprosy. She had previously watched her brother suffer for many years before dying an agonising death from the same disease and wanted to spare her son the same painful fate.

1187 is my lucky number.

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to show me where the hell Helen of Annoy has been for the past couple of months.

1195 is the only number in the world that has no historical significance in any way... In fact if you type 1195 into Google it would break the internet.

1197 is the number Pax should have used in his last post...

Does that mean one thousand one hundred and ninety eight should be in this post or the next one?

1200 out of 1200 is the score you get for that comeback...  ;)

Also we are back on par, the post count now matches the number. What I thought was a clanger by Pax was actually a carefully considered plan that has at last brought balance to the Force.
