is the magic number for EK in 2013. 939
only has 4 factors: 1, 3, 313, 939...which doesn't really have any significant meaning relating to our TOP 100. AMD made a CPU called the Socket 939
back in June 2004...but we're not sponsored by them nor any other computer tech company to supply us with the machines that we need to run EK. The year 939
in Roman numerals is CMXXXIX...which doesn't mean crap since none of us use Roman numerals anymore.
According to HistoryOrb.com
, 4 major events took place in year 939
that were documented:
(The Major Occultation, or Ghaybat el-Kubra of Muhammad al-Mahdi
(Battle at Simancas - Spain beats Moors
(Battle at Andernach: King Otto & Hermann of Zwaben beat Eberhard of France & Giselbert of Lutherans
(Edmund I succeeds Athelstan as King of England
)...which all has nothing to do with EK.
is the exact number of posts we had to sift through for 2013 in order to bring to all of you art-fiends our fourth annual EMPTY KINGDOM TOP 100 Artists of 2013
