Thirty-six is an even number, divisible by 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18 and 36. It is the square of 6, and the number of degrees in the five inner angles of a pentagon. There are 36 inches in one yard.
It is the atomic number of krypton (a noble gas), a perfect score on the ACT test, and the standard number of gallons in a beer barrel in the United Kingdom.
Otherwise, it's not the most exciting number, but that's okay. It's my age today, and I suppose I'm officially starting to "push 40" or something. I'll just happily be 36 for now, munching on a cupcake and maybe having a celebratory margarita later.
Happy Birthday to me!
