79th Annual

So I think it’s funny that they refer to the Acadamy Awards this year as the 79th Annual Acadamy Awards Ceremony. Yeah, you do it every year… we know. Maybe if I was 89 and got amnesia and lost all memory back to the time I was 10, then I wouldn’t know they held them yearly. It’s like saying that today is the 87,920th weekly Wednesday, or that my 24th birthday was in the 1,686th annual February, on the 20,233rd 12th. I get the feeling that the words “79th annual” are more to make it sound fancy than to provide information.

I dunno, that’s my 0.0152 Euros worth

    what is up with the term new and improved? If it is new, how can it be improved?
    Or Brand new? Brand adds nothing to new….

    I rounded the euros to the 100th of a cent, give me a break. That’s still 2 US cents if you round it to the thousanth of a US cent

    I’m sure eventually they’ll have to do away with the numbers. I can’t imagine them saying, “And now, the 1,256th Annual Acadamy Awards Ceremony.” Using the numbers makes them feel grown up; more prestigious.
