Caulfield: Hey! I just noticed that 100 is the roundest of round numbers and it's a perfect square! 100 is one irrational number.

I’ve always liked 12, the first of the abundant numbers.

pie are square . . . but cornbread are round.

The DC-9 was just after WW-II and never saw service, eclipsed by the DC-10, which did, despite a tendency to open doors in flight.
