The number and positioning of complex and simple mammary glands varies widely in different mammals. The nipples and glands can occur anywhere along the two milk lines, two roughly-parallel lines along the ventral aspect of the body. In general most mammals develop mammary glands in pairs along these lines, with a number approximating the number of young typically birthed at a time. The number of nipples varies from 2 (in most primates) to 16 (in pigs). The Virginia Opossum has 13, one of the few mammals with an odd number. The following table lists the number and position of glands normally found in a range of mammals:
|Goat, sheep, horse |
|Dog||4||2||2 or 4||8 or 10|

Anyway. To the business in hand; ahem...
Hares R2D2 and Kii Leum
Misdirections: From the Kao Saeng intersection take the old Yala road for 4.3k and turn right. Follow the road for 800 meters and turn left then follow the road/track for about 500 meters to the run site.
As for the three eyed horny monster, well he's the hare at HH3 this week! Yup It's another Off T run on Sunday which will be set from 4k down the new Yala road on the left. No news of whether Porky Sex his (mis)leading accomplice will be involved but the run will be at 4:00 p.m.
Can I go back to bed now?
As all Scripture-reading hashers know, it is written that should the day ever come when Songkhla Hash does not run on Saturday, the end is nigh. Thus for 1,501 consecutive weeks we have successfully held off the End of Days.
But tomorrow is Saturday and now, as of Friday noon, we have no indication that there will indeed be a run. Yes, hares were named last week, but who are they and where are they now? And a runsite? Do we even have a runsite? And who's that big red guy with the three eyes, the Head Crony? The horror, the horror!

Songkhla H3 run #1501; Saturday March 20th; 4:30 p.m.
Hatyai H3 run #480; Sunday March 21st; 4:00 p.m.
The hares have promised that there will be a common theme to the two runs and awards of goodies are promised which will be based on what happens on both runs.
PLEASE COME TO BOTH RUNS OR ELSE (the hares will be upset)!
Seriously, these two guys have done more than anyone else over the last couple of years to provide us with great runs and it would be a fitting tribute if we turned out in big numbers to help them celebrate their birthdays.

Sorry, no photos of the real highlight of the event -- the rotten-tomato karaoke contest. Which goes to prove that GPSes are still optional, but cameras aren't.

And the answer of course is 'yes it was' because there we were again in Dannock to celebrate the jubilee year.
Well some of us were. A combination of work, bereavements, enforced displacements and hangovers shrunk the attendance somewhat and once the usual crop of late arriving Malaysians had made it across the border, the runners were just about able to squeeze into a single song theow, with another half dozen or so choosing to find other forms of entertainment in Dannock while the rest of us were following the trail jointly laid by Just Rotten and Hash Pimp.
Jointly... hmmm... maybe competitively would have been a better description with the Hash Pimp section of the run (thick yellow line on the picture) heading off towards the lake while the Rotten section (Red line) headed to where the Song Theow awaited at the water tower. The resulting schism saw Only a Yolk romping home as first runner on paper, while front runners Star Soccer, Boh Geh, Egghead and a couple of other Malaysian hounds set off on Hash Pimp's bit of the run as darkness fell and had to be rescued by Just Rotten somewhere around the Water View Restaurant.
The circle was held and the food consumed at an interesting venue outside the 7-11 at the end of Soi 9 which despite its somewhat temporary air was a surprisingly effective location and attracted rather more observers than participants, most of whom got iced but stayed dry as there is apparently a drought in Dannock.
Having lead the pack home, Only a Yolk then proceded to dominate the nominations for sinners for variously short cutting, avaricious beer token behavior and having the temerity to suggest that the food at Sadao H3 always consisted of chicken curry. Rotten was later iced for having lied about that one as, sure enough, along with the barbecued kebabs there were large vats of chicken curry and rice to wash down the copious free beer.
Another chaotic afternoon which is what we go to Dannock for. The day Sadao H3 gets itself properly organised, starts its runs on time, always ends at the right place and finds a permanent friendly venue, will be the day it ceases to be worth going to!
Thanks Rotten and supporting cast for a great afternoon's entertainment.

The first F takes its toll: Schmuckme Witherspoon, Hoi Yai, Palm Job and Hans make their way back towards the pack
Stick Insect explains why he is at the back of the pack after falling prey to the 2nd F
Meanwhile, some of the short run judging the experience to be too short had turned and departed for a second circuit, arriving back at the run site some time after the full long run pack had completed their travails.
Go west young man! Kan Kai points the way at the last check
Returning runner was Yolks Poke and sinners were After Ours for nanny parenting, having freaked out when Eightball had elected to leave the collected hash brats enjoying themselves in the crocodile infested reservoir, Only a Yolk and Crackwurst for unauthorised inflation of the rego for next week's 1500th run to 100 Baht, Egghead for yet another pair of new shoes, and Only a Yolk again for having been deemed responsible for the loss of the comoyed hash sign.

(But has he yet been inducted into the ultra-secret inner sanctum of THE CRONIES? We don't know either, but don't count on it!)
Assuming that it does take place, Hatyai Hash will join the Sadao run. If that should change it will be circulated on Saturday.

It's true! False reports notwithstanding, Beaver's reign as GM was abruptly terminated last Saturday. But in his place we have a brand new GM, R2D2 whose picture will appear in this organ just as soon as we can get him to stand still in a compromising pose for long enough to take his mugshot. We also have a brand new On Sec (Stick Insect), RA (Gan Yao), Assassin (Super pig) and Nerd (Beavershot), and After Hours and Ram It In will be sharing the Keg-mistress post for the coming year. Only a Yolk will continue as Hash Cash and is now officially (as opposed to unofficially) the Hash Haberdasher, Knackerwurst will whip and Egghead will continue to nag you all about setting more runs. Talking of which....
Details of this weeks SH3 run will follow shortly but on Sunday it looks as if Hatyai Hash will be moving en masse to Sadao to join the Sadao H3 7th Anniversary run, the details of which can be found on the new Hatyai H3 website blog
