Seven. Seven bloody threads I've done so far. This one's number eight. I hate you all*. The number eight is considered to be a lucky number in Chinese and other Asian cultures. Eight (八; accounting 捌; pinyin bā) is considered a lucky number in Chinese culture because it sounds like the word meaning to generate wealth (發(T) 发(S); Pinyin: fā). Property with the number 8 may be valued greatly by Chinese. For example, a Hong Kong number plate with the number 8 was sold for $640,000. The opening ceremony of the Summer Olympics in Beijing started at 8 seconds and 8 minutes past 8 pm (local time) on 8 August 2008. *Saints' longest unbeaten run was 19 games in 1921,starting in September (same as this interminable run). If I hate you all now, I can't imagine what emotions that might engender. Let's hope we don't find out.
