556 is the number that should have been mentioned in the post no.556
No one worth mentioning was born or died that year, but it’s not safe to assume that’s one boring number, because there’s this cute toy called SIG 556.

And 557 in the post no.557
T 557 is Blu-ray disc player, as overpriced and overrated as any other Blu-ray.

Now
558
AR-558 was a planet in Alpha Quadrant of the Star Trek universe, not particularly hospitable to humanoids.


My OCDness is now purring happily.

559 is the number of heart-attacks/strokes I was on the verge of having, due to worrying about the way numbers were getting wildly out of sync with post numbers! I knew Helen's suckers would be chewed down to the tentacle regarding this, but I couldn't think of a way to fix it :o

What, in all the world, could I do to earn my living and still live as myself, as I knew myself to be? Temporary masks, I knew, had their place; everyone was wearing them, they were the human rage; but not masks cemented in place until the wearer could not breathe and was eventually suffocated.

A.D. 560.  This year Ceawlin undertook the government of the
West-Saxons; and Ella, on the death of Ida, that of the
Northumbrians; each of whom reigned thirty winters.  Ella was the
son of Iff, Iff of Usfrey, Usfrey of Wilgis, Wilgis of
Westerfalcon, Westerfalcon of Seafowl, Seafowl of Sebbald,
Sebbald of Sigeat, Sigeat of Swaddy, Swaddy of Seagirt, Seagar of
Waddy, Waddy of Woden, Woden of Frithowulf.  This year Ethelbert
came to the kingdom of the Cantuarians, and held it fifty-three
winters.  In his days the holy Pope Gregory sent us baptism.
That was in the two and thirtieth year of his reign.  And
Columba, the mass-priest, came to the Picts, and converted them
to the belief of Christ.  They are the dwellers by the northern
moors.  And their king gave him the island of Hii, consisting of
five hides, as they say, where Columba built a monastary.  There
he was abbot two and thirty winters; and there he died, when he
was seventy-seven years old.  The place his successors yet have.
The Southern Picts were long before baptized by Bishop Ninnia,
who was taught at Rome.  His church or monastery is at Hwiterne,
hallowed in the name of St. Martin, where he resteth with many
holy men.  Now, therefore, shall there be ever in Hii an abbot,
and no bishop; and to him shall be subject all the bishops of the
Scots; because Columba was an abbot -- no bishop.


(Phew!)

Pill imprinted with
563 PLIVA
is cyclobenzaprine hydrochloride, stuff that makes your muscles relax and stop hurting so damn much.

Funny coincidence: Pliva used to be Croatian pharmaceutical industry, now it’s owned by Teva, and I had epic sciatica last week. I'm good as new now, thanks for asking, because I took no pills. When body freezes a group of muscles, that happens to prevent further damage so it's actually hilariously wrong to un-freeze them too soon. Rant over. Sorry, old people problems, both the back and the rants :D

566 Stereoskopia is minor planet (168 km in diameter) orbiting the Sun, belonging to Cybele asteroid group.
Some of those rocks even have their own moons, but not Stereoskopia.

ABOUT THE 568 PRESIDENTS' GROUP

A Brief History

Beginning in the mid-1950s, a number of private colleges and universities agreed to award financial aid on the basis of demonstrated financial need. This principle of need-based aid also became the basis for awarding most federal undergraduate aid, and this approach enabled colleges to spread their limited financial aid dollars among the greatest number of worthy applicants. For some five decades, need-based aid has helped to assure the high degree of access to education enjoyed by low- and middle-income students across the country.

569 is the desigation number of Premium Round Baler from agricultural equipment company John Deere. It produces bales 1.5 m (5-ft) wide and up to 1.8 m (6-ft) tall with a maximum dry weight of 2200 lb. They claim that the bale diameter and density can be adjusted to meet feeding and handling requirements, just like Christian Bale ability to transform his appearance to suit movie roles. :)
