Ok, put this one under strange but true file.

He could have bought a nice home or something for that much money. Good grief that's a lot of money to spend for just a phone number.

...interesting story and all, but isn't publishing a guy's cellphone number (even if he bought it at an auction) sort of an invasion of privacy?

Assuming of course he was to actually use it.

Th nerve of some people, I tell ya. Why in the world would someone want to pay that much fora cellphone number? Did a cellphone come with the deal, or did he have to buy one at an additional charge?

I'd laugh if the gent who bought the number defaulted on his cellular contract and lost it in a month.

Some may call that silly, but they probably think we're silly for forgetting to install the 13th floor in some buildings.

Don't Asians think the number "4" is unlucky?

Asians? I don't know.

Japanese? Yes.

The Japanese think one of the numbers for four is unlucky because one of the counting characters (their number system is a little different. You use different characters for counting different objects; Seven can probably describe it better) for the number four is pronounced "shi." There is another character prounced "shi" and that is for death.

Same thing for one of the numbers for nine, "kuu" because it can also sound like a word for torture. They also hate 13 for a different reason (four + nine).

I vaguly remember a string of numbers that the Chinese or Japanese don't like. I can't remember it. It's like the christian 666, and means something like "you have a slim chance of living."

I've had their grilled chicken a couple times, I prefer the fried [/stereotype]. The grilled tastes alot like the "roasted" chicken you would get at Carrows/Coco's/Marie Callendar's. Those places are national chains, right?
