And the year CMXXXVIII was CCLXXVII years before the Magna Carta was sealed.

(Minor nitpick--King John used his seal on the document instead of his signature.)

The Porsche 959 is a sports car manufactured from 1986 to 1993, first as a Group B rally car and later as a road legal production car designed to satisfy FIA homologation regulations requiring at least 200 units be produced.

In the year 961, the "Shroud of Saint Josse", a rich silk Samite camel cloth from Khurasan, was made. It is preserved in the Abbey of Saint-Josse-sur-Mer, near Caen, Normandy.

The year 962 would only be 530 years away from when Christopher Columbus would not find a Western route to India, would not discover America, and would not bring the peacefulness of Christianity to the indigenous peoples of the Caribbean.

976.

According to urbandictionary.com, the 976 rule is that "the physical attractiveness of a person one's never seen before is significantly lower than the appeal of their phone voice. (the rule is based on the principle that "976" phone sex operators are generally unattractive women in trailer parks.)"

979. In a thousand years, I would graduate high school. Of course, had you asked me in 1975, I never thought I would graduate high school, but it happened.
