643
A sports bar in Kentucky, with a reputation for good food and atmostphere. The nomenclature's origins refer to a defensive play in basebal, in which after the ball is hit, it is fielded by the short stop, who throws to the 2nd basement, (outing the runner on the way from 1st) who hurls to the 1st basement, forcing out the batter. When successful it results in two outs, or a 'double play.' I am not sure what this has to do with hamburgers and cheap beer, though.

I thought it meant buy 3 get 3 free (or in Londonese buy free get free free).

Heraclius was indeed 65 but yavuzovic commented on the years he remained on the throne.

644 AD Omar, the founder of the Dome of the Rock oi Jerusalem dies assassinated. He's a hero or a traitor depending which branch of Islam tells the story.

PRINCE WILLIAM is right but I didn't consider the fact damo666 pointed out. Life expectancy was surely around 30 years but he's probably right than those who reach adulthood can expect to live longer than that.

Many died before an age we'd consider young as simple things were fatal then lack of antibiotics and vaccines. In ancient time, things were better while people still didn't reach very old. Ramsi III died at the age of 93 and his countrymen thought of him as immortal because none lived that remembered his birth!

645 A number that sounds like a child messing counting!

648 AD
Pope Theodore I (not a chipmunk) excommunicates Paul II of Constantinople. (Paul always seems like such a 'common.' name for people of historical significance.)

650 the lowest square pyramidal pronic number that is primitive abundant.

Also the number of seats in the House of Commons (UK).

I doubt the two are related.

652 - number of career saves (American Baseball stat) by NY Yankees relief pitcher Mariano Rivera - the leader in that category. One save that got away was in game 7 of the 2001 World Series against the Arizona Diamondbacks, giving the D-backs the championship in only their 4th year (it was the 100th year since the establishment of the Yankees).

MAS 653... In 1977, this flight crashed for unknown reasons. The worst crash in Malaysia's air transport history. Still a mystery.
