What does 40bar mean?
The meaning of the word “40” in the title of this post is not just a coincidence. It means 40 bars. A bar is a unit used to measure time, like seconds or minutes.
So, if you want to count how many years have passed since January 1st, 1970, then you need to divide 40 by 60 (which equals 2). That’s why it’s called the second because it takes two seconds to pass one year.
So, when someone says “I’m going to be here all night”, they’re saying that they’ll be there for 40 hours. If you say “I’m going to be here all day”, then you’d mean that you’ll be there for 40 days. And so on…
In other words, the number 40 is a symbol of time. When we use numbers in our lives, we usually do it with some sort of reference point. For example, we might use the number 10 to represent money.
Or we might use the number 20 to represent something else. But when it comes to numbers, we don’t really have any idea what they stand for.
That’s where 40bars come into play. They are a simple way of expressing time in terms of units such as seconds or minutes. It’s easy enough to understand and remember, which makes them perfect for communicating with others!
For example, we might think of the number 10 as being something like a person. You see, the first digit represents age, while the last digit represents gender. So, if you were to write out ten digits from 0 to 9 (or whatever), then you would get the name Mary Sue.
Similarly, when we use numbers in our lives, we tend to associate them with something else. It’s a bit like how we use names. We get so used to their meanings, that we start using them as a kind of shorthand for things.
So, let’s start with the number one. What does one mean? Well, you’re probably familiar with the word “onesie”, a term used to describe an adult onesie. Obviously then, one is a word used to describe something for adults.
You can also call it a “puby”
