71 days

That's right just 71 days until the Juggle-In!
 71 is actually a pretty awesome number.
71 is the 20th prime number.
71  is also a permutable prime with 17.

And... If we add up the primes less than 71 (2 through 67), we get 568, which is divisible by 71, 8 times.
  Notice that...  8 times!  just like 7+1 = 8

71 is the number of different characters that can be used with a standard English Keyboard, excluding uppercase letters.

71 is the form number for the United States Office of Personnel Management for requesting a leave of absence. (credit to Wikipedia for much of this trivia )

The SR-71, a high altitude, high speed reconnaissance aircraft had an unrefueled range of 3,500 miles, and its two Pratt and Whitney J58 turbojets generated 60,000 pounds of thrust while guzzling 8,000 gallons of fuel per hour.

The 1971 Ford Mustang
 A 1971 Mustang Mach 1 was featured in the James Bond film, Diamonds Are Forever (1971) which was the 7th Bond movie with 1 incredible Sean Connery as Bond.

7 -1 =  6,  and  1971 is 6 years before famously innovative juggler Jay Gilligan was born in 1977.

So what does all this mean? It's simple.
You'll need to get up to speed, get on your keyboard, and type up a leave of absence form so you can take advantage of all the Prime juggling at the Juggle-In. Don't delay because time flies faster than a SR-71, and the event will be here before you know it. You'll want to be there with all the famous and  creative jugglers that come to RIT every year.
