I have lists such as

th = {227, 342, 527, 0, 670, 730, 703, 0, 0, 649, 687, 614, 570, 501,
   462, 402, 325, 254, 189, 99, 81, 36, 9, 8, 3, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0,
   0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0,
    0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0}

and I want to find the position of the last nonzero element (e.g. 3 at 
position 25). Trivial, but some poking around did not reveal a neat way.

Anyone? Thank you.
