542 is the reverse of the amount of home runs Derek Jeter has (as of 5/29/12 - he has 245).

Sorry if that's bad, I couldn't find much for this one.

From The Oxford Book of English Verse (1919)

Poem No. 544



544. Lucy Ashton's Song


LOOK not thou on beauty's charming;
Sit thou still when kings are arming;
Taste not when the wine-cup glistens;
Speak not when the people listens;
Stop thine ear against the singer;
From the red gold keep thy finger;
Vacant heart and hand and eye,
Easy live and quiet die.


~ Sir Walter Scott. 1771-1832

Figure 545 in Grey's Anatomy of the Human Body is the femoral sheath laid open to show its three compartments.

http://www.bartleby.com/107/illus545.html

My limited understanding is that the femoral sheath holds the large veins and arteries that are in your leg.
Any corrections to my post will be gladly accepted.

U-552 was a German submarine in WWII.

Nicknamed the red devil, she sank "USS Reuben James" in 1941; this was the first US warship to be sank in the war, and happened when the US was still neutral.

The Lewis & Clark Expedition across America officially started from Illinois in 1804 and reached the Pacific Ocean on the 554th day.



They had travelled more than 4000 miles by foot, horse, and canoe, upriver along the Missouri River, and through Montana. They stayed at the Pacific for the winter then turned around and travelled the whole route again back to the East Coast. The entire round trip took 2 years, 4 months and 9 days.

For a great site about it, and for fascinating diary extracts, see here: http://lewisandclarktrail.com/index.html

(I'm hooked now, and have to read the whole journal.)



Edit: corrected date & added links.

Birmingham, UK, is the home of a complex road interchange system of raised roads criss-crossing each other over 5 height levels and 30 acres, and looking a bit like like a plate of spaghetti.

Hence its nickname "Spaghetti Junction".

The roads are raised on large columns, some of them 80 ft high.

There are 559 columns.
