Mathematicians and teenage watchers of Futurama would know it as the Hardy-Ramanujan number. Whether that makes it interesting is another matter.

Hmm well there are lots of things (mathematical, annual etc) but knowing WW I'd go for the founding of the Champagne house Ruinart....

Oh how well you know me!
Yes 10 cubed plus 9 cubed...
And also 12 cubed plus 1 cubed

And Ruinart - my wedding champagne!

I think Ruinart was the first champagne house to trade, commercially, with England. Unless any of your erudite vinophils can say otherwise. But when?

Think that I may have to lie down in a darkened room for a bit.

Madame Bollinger was asked when she drank champagne and this is was her reply: "I drink champagne when I am happy. I drink champagne when I am sad. I drink it when I am alone and when I am not alone, it is a must. I have a little glass when I have no appetite and I drink it with meals always. At all other times, I do not drink it unless I am thirsty." She died age 79.
