Lightbulb 25

The 25th Hour..
25 is a centered octagonal number, a centered square number, and an automorphic number..The atomic number of manganese..The element is a required trace mineral for all known living organisms but is a neurotoxin.. In larger amounts, and apparently with far greater effectiveness through inhalation, it can cause a poisoning syndrome in mammals, with neurological damage which is sometimes irreversible..n 1972 the CIA's Project Azorian, through billionaire Howard Hughes, commissioned the ship Hughes Glomar Explorer with the cover story of harvesting manganese nodules from the sea floor.. That triggered a rush of activity to attempt to collect manganese nodules, which was not actually practical.. The real mission of Hughes Glomar Explorer was to raise a sunken Soviet submarine, the K-129, with the goal of retrieving Soviet code books.. Sank on 8 March 1968 approximately 1,560 nautical miles (2,890 km) northwest of Oahu in the Pacific Ocean with all hands.. 98 crewmen died..The second large application for manganese is as an alloying agent for aluminium..Some of the cave paintings in Lascaux, France, use manganese-based pigments..Electronegativity Pauling scale: 1.55..George Born 25 February 1943..Liverpool, England.."Dark Horse" reached number 15...

It is a square number, being 52 = 5 × 5...

The Beatles talk about LSD..

LSD-25, also known as lysergide (INN) and colloquially as acid, is a psychedelic drug of the ergoline family, well known for its psychological effects which can include altered thinking processes, closed- and open-eye visuals, synesthesia, an altered sense of time, and spiritual experiences—as well as for its key role in 1960s counterculture..LSD's psychological effects (colloquially called a "trip") vary greatly between persons and places..The M25 is one of Europe's busiest motorways..The number of the French department Doubs..The department is dominated by the Jura mountains, which rise east of Besançon..Hour 25 first took to the air in January 1972..In the 25th year of our exile, at the beginning of the year, on the 10th day of the month, in the 14th year after the city was struck down, on that very day, the hand of the Lord was upon me, and he brought me to the city..The Twenty-Fifth Hour is also commonly called by other names including "Odom's Spire", "Whence", "Lud", and "the Time Out of Time"..Titled as a reflection of her life and frame of mind at 25 years old, 25 is a "make-up record"..lyrical content features themes of Adele yearning for her old self, her nostalgia, and melancholy about the passage of time as well as themes of motherhood and regret.."Bye bye 25 ..See you again later in the year"..Length 48:25..Pony (British slang) for £25... don't read the papers much, do you smart guy?. In New York?.We've a wonderful thing called the Rockefeller laws..To read a newspaper is to refrain from reading something worthwhile...
