Hello World!

You know how many Star Trek episodes included mention of the number 47? I was talking about it with a friend and reading through the web site of the 47 Society, and noticed that my own life is also filled with occurrences of this "quintessential random number of the universe."

To begin with, my post box number ends with 47. So does my bank account number. My old phone number ended with 47, a friend's phone number still does, and there's even a '47' included in my current phone number. And all those were just '47' occurrences I found by looking at the very first compartment of my wallet.

Am I the only one who has so many 47s in his life? Do post in this BBS thread if you're another one of those people whose life seems to be haunted by 47.
