Proof

**** THE PROOF THAT Paperback Writer IS EVIL ****

P A P E R B A C K W R I T E R
16 1 16 5 18 2 1 3 11 23 18 9 20 5 18
7 1 7 5 9 2 1 3 2 5 9 9 2 5 9

6 7 6 5 7

Thus, "Paperback Writer" is 67657.

Subtract 1970, the year IBM announced S/370. The result will be 65687.

Add 1977, the year Elvis left the planet - the result is 67664.

Add 661 to it - this is the year Roman Empire was devastated by a plague, written backwards - you will get 68325.

Turn the number backwards, and add 1865 - the year Lincoln was shot. The number is now 54251.

Turn the number backwards, subtract 38 - the symbol of slavery. The number is now 15207.

Write 1976 backwards. Translate it to octal - this will give you 15207. Thus, 15207 stands for 1976, the year George Harrison performed the lumberjack song with Monty Python - if you have seen it, you should understand.

You get the picture. QED.

  1. I already knew you were the AntiChrist, Stuart. The beard is such a giveaway.

    There's a slight error in your calculations: Elvis is alive! (But don't worry, you're still evil.)

    Seriously, Sheila, I like your kind of evil.

  4. Well, you didn't, Peggy, but you knew me before I became a cult figure. :)

    Heather, I have this terrible urge to look in your attic now.
