I was interested in learning French after seeing this joke:
3 dogs are competing in a swimming race. There is an English dog named "one two three"; a German dog named "eins zwei drei"; and a French dog named "un deux trois". The dogs all swim across a lake. The English dog finishes first. The German dog finishes second. But the French dog is nowhere to be found.
Because un deux trois quartre cinq.
But it wasn't a joke when I learned that to count to 97, you say 4 * 20 + 10 + 7. I had a 6ure and 5 to my knees and pray God to 7 the French language on fire ... I had e9.

A fire rainbow is a rare phenomenon ... formed when sunlight refracts through ice-crystal clouds.
Here are the photos of a fire rainbow over Singapore in 2017-02-20, around 5:10pm-ish and lasted about 15 minutes. Wish I was there to witness it !

I'm from the government, I'm here to help.
By the way, the following statements are often attributed to Roman politician and orator Marcus Tullius Cicero (106 BC-43 BC), who once served as Consul of the Roman Republic:
1. The poor, work & work.
2. The rich, exploit the poor.
3. The soldier, protects both.
4. The taxpayer, pays for all the three.
5. The wanderer, rests for all the four.
6. The drunk, drinks for all the five.
7. The banker, robs all the six.
8. The lawyer, misleads all the seven.
9. The doctor, kills all the eight.
10. The undertaker, buries all the nine.
11. The politician lives happily on account of all the ten.
However there is no known source for these apocryphal sayings (or anything remotely resembling it) in Cicero's recorded letters, speeches, and works. Moreover, there is no record of them having been attributed to him (or anyone else) prior to 2012, when they were posted to an Occupy Wall Street-related forum. In other words, it is simply people attempting to demonstrate the aptness of a particular social or political viewpoint by putting these words into the mouth of a revered historical figure.

This photo is the Tinderry Mountain Range taken at 7:37pm, 2017 January 12, near the small town of Michelago, NSW, Australia ... specifically, on Monaro Highway, 1 km south of the turn off to Ryrie Street (into Michelago), and looking towards the east ~~~
The white stuff covering the mountain range is not snow. They are clouds. But notice it is clear blue sky everywhere !
Is there a meteorologist, budding meteorologist, pretend meteorologist out there who can explain this phenomenon?
By the way, the Tinderry Mountains are interesting to climb. Photos and an account of the climb are in my blog:
