Stupid Pope

Years which are evenly divisible by 100 are not leap years, unless they are also evenly divisible by 400, in which case they are leap years
For example, 1600 and 2000 were leap years, but 1700, 1800 and 1900 were not. Going forward, 2100, 2200, 2300, 2500, 2600, 2700, 2900, and 3000 will not be leap years, but 2400 and 2800 will be.

Reboot @ Working

Recently I had a voicemail from someone who left their work number for me to call them back. Unfortunately they also used their work voice for this. It was like a switch was flicked at the end of the message and work mode was activated.
I tried in vain to call the number that was left... but it turns out that one of what I thought was a 2 turns out to be a 3. But as the voice was in work mode and was rattled off as if it was known to everyone - not just the caller - it wasn’t as distinguishable you would think, even though it had been repeated during the message and I replayed it I still believe the number to be a 2.

After calling my mate back on his mobile, the conversation led to my explaining the above. So Buddy McBud recorded himself on his own mobile and it turns out he also thought it was a 2.

Try it.
It might explain the lack of return calls.

So are they really worried about me?

Things That People Learned About Dublin Thanks To 'Once':

* No one in Dublin (except rich studio engineers) owns a mobile phone. All calls must be made from public phones just off Grafton Street.
* It's normal to go to the shop at night in your pyjamas. You won't be mugged or arrested.
* Dublin thieves are perfectly nice once you've caught them and shown them your compassionate side. But watch out for that second door out of HMV!
* Young Dubliners don't go to the pub; they organise sing-songs at home where everyone eats plain spaghetti and listens to someone's ma* singing come-all-ye rebel ballads.
* Immigrants to Dublin have no worries except for neighbours barging in to watch 'Fair City'.
* It doesn't rain in Dublin.

This is from a french perspective
