The 900th BAB

GDT thought it would be fun for the 900th BAB to be a "special" (or bablishish) BAB, but he decided to make the 900th BAB a BAB about being the 900th BAB (i.e. YABAB -- Yet Another BAB About BABs).

This 900th BAB was BAB number 138 for the Spring 2007 semester. At the time of this BAB, there were 29 BAB collections. BARS (Basic Arithmetic Road Signs) was the largest BAB collection with 224 BARS.

This 900th BAB was created on 29 March 2007; 778 days since the creation of the first BAB on 9 February 2005.
