The Numbers In Real Life ...

Post by MollyCocktail on Thu Jun 05, 2008 7:36 pm

At work just the other day I saw something that demanded a photo be taken and immediately emailed to Ian (Caged_Faraday). We have an order board here at my company that shows the tally of orders shipped and received for the day. To my surprise, 108 was the day's tally.
Check it out:



To pass the time 'till 2009, I am going to start snapping pictures of things and places where the numbers appear. Lame hobby I know, but I need to get my fix somehow!

Perhaps you might have some LOST-esque numbers photos you would like to share too?

Actually, a week or two ago, I walked by a deli, and the "Take a Number" digital counter up on the wall read "23." I walked by again a little bit later, and it read "42." Seriously.

And I don't know how many Weird Al Yankovic fans we have here, but something just dawned on me with his parody of Michael Jackson's "Bad" (his version is "Fat")...

Two of the lines from his song:

"When you're only having seconds/I'm having twenty-thirds"

"And my shadow weighs forty-two pounds/Lemme tell you once again who's fat"

Coincidence? I think not.

Well, my address is 1412. These numbers added up equal 8, plus I live on the 2nd floor. 8*2 = 16. I know. That's freaky.

Dude, I've been 4, 8, 15, 16, and 23, and hopefully will be 42 eventually, as well. Some bizarre coincidences here, I must say.

well i live in mebourne and my apartment no is 2802, if you add up the numbers 2+8+0+2, it gives you 12 and the postcode for Melbourner is 3000 and if we add that to the 12+3+0+0+0 then we have 15. Wow spooky.

And if i add me who is one person (mostly) then 15+1 is 16. whoooo!

Sometimes when I am sleepy I find that I have had the television on channel 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 or 42, which is amazing as we do not have any free to air channels with those numbers, but hey when your tired there is something relaxing in looking at static on television.

Those numbers really are spooky.

My odometer has about 5000 miles till I hit Hugo's reading. I'll be certain to take a photo the moment it hits (and have the trip odometer zeroed at the right time), probably won't be for another six months or so, though. Just a heads-up.

See, I'm not the only one who can't help but to read it as Artz (or Arts) instead of Arzt.
