Light and dark.

Zero through ten are fairly bright. Eleven through twenty are a bit dimmer, but the numbers brighten up again until thirty. Then it's a gradual dimming until about one hundred, after which it's all a murky blanket.

Other numbers tend to get categorized by their primary components. So eleven thousand, for example, is mostly an "eleven" number. So it's brighter than 123.

And if you didn't think I was insane before this, then kindly disregard this note. But if you know the truth, then you're welcome to read and remember.

[TStanley]: I'm sitting in the airport in Tampa, Florida at the moment, getting ready to head home.
[talexb]: TStanley I'm flying to Vegas in two weeks time. After that flights leaving Vegas and Phoenix are late at night .. I've been hearing that it gets so hot that the air isn't dense enough for planes to take off. Weird. Guess you won't have that problem.
