Right before nationals this year, I started noticing our team number (217) in everyday places. For example, gas prices dropped to right about $2.17 everywhere around my house just about a week before nats.

Where have you seen your team number (or any other ones, for that matter) in places where you wouldn't expect it? Post any good (humorous or entertaining) pictures, please.

Whenever 116 appears anywhere, someone on our team notices and its quite amusing. Locker number 116, room number 116, receipt number 116, ect. ect. ect.
I also have started noticing other team numbers too. Like room 233, and 2:33, whenever I see those, I "Think Pink" (pun fully intended). When I see 6:23 on a clock I think about Oakton High School. ect. ect. ect.

04-26-2005, 03:11 PM
There is a sign in our county that says Route 616 and an arrow pointing to Courtland. So we basically have 616 leading to Courtland in more than one way ;)

Whenever I drive to the Philly regional, I always park in spot #365. In fact, there are a bunch of MOE stickers on that spot even today!

I can't WAIT for gas prices to drop to our team's number!! :)

I know exactly what all of you are talking about.
Every time i look at my watch and see 3:65 o'clock I always thing, darn i gotta get a new watch...

But seriously i see FIRST team numbers everywhere and it always makes me happy to think of the teams and the people.

04-26-2005, 04:01 PM
From rt 78 the exit to Watchung is 41...next year id like to incorporate that into a pin or sticker or something like that.

04-26-2005, 04:10 PM
CD users will be excited to know I am joining out local Fire Department, Station 47 when I am 18 :)

I was in the middle of a team meeting and looked at the clock and said "ok it's PAW right now..." and got blank looks from my kids until I realized what I had done. Oh dear...

I notice other team numbers much more than my own. It was not a good feeling to see "233" on gas station signs. When I come back from Stuart FL to see my SPAM friends I have to get off on exit 180 to go home. Weird stuff.

04-26-2005, 04:20 PM
I always seem to look at the clock whenever it says 11:23. It's sad because that's my boyfriend's team and I really miss him. >_<;

But yeah. There's an exit on the beltway numbered 7. I always laugh when I see it, and people look at me funny when I laugh saying "haha...7...xD" It's like..."Dori, are you okay!?" xD Oh, what FIRST does to me.

Also there's an exit 1 here...and I usually can relate a team number to SOMETHING...

04-26-2005, 04:23 PM
I also notice other numbers, since it's a pain in the butt to find anything that's $12.93 or the like.

However, I have a story from my days as a Piggly Wiggly cashier. If you don't know, Piggly Wiggly does Greenbax, which is a rewards program. If you buy certain items, it'll let you use Greenbax books stored on your PFC card (as you earn them by using your PFC card) and get it for free (just pay tax). (If you're wondering why the unit is a book, it's because back in the old days customers literally filled books with Greenbax stamps they got at the store, then brought them in. They're still valid, too.)

One night, our coach's wife came through my line, so I was ringing things up. I hit the total button, and the Greenbax dialog came up. Her balance at the time, I kid you not, was 12.93 books.

04-26-2005, 04:30 PM
I went to Carl's Jr. yesterday and after waiting in a long line of people it just so happened I was order # 696. The funny thing is that this has happened twice at that location.

It's kinda hard to find things of my team number (11) but i do notice other teams like every time i look at my watch it seems to be a team number. If i'm driving down the interstate and notice it's a FIRST team I smile.

Being on a FIRST team was the greatest four years of my life. So great in fact that I now volunteer so others can make FIRST the greatest four years of their life.

PS This was my 233rd post...go PINK

There have been many days where the last time I've checked the clock it was either 2:54am or 2:58am. I've also had the misfortune of paying at least $2.58 per gallon of gas (the cheap stuff) VERY often. That's one of the few drawbacks of living in California... we get screwed on gas and utilities.

Jeremiah Johnson
04-26-2005, 04:40 PM
That reminds me. I always look at the clock everyday at 6:48. Also, our old number, 309, just happens to be our area code! It's too bad we dont have that number anymore. Everytime I do a math problem I try and think of the team that that answer is.

04-26-2005, 04:43 PM
One Saturday during build season, a couple of members from our robotics team went out to Friendlies for lunch. Someone's bill came out to be $14.03. Coincidence, I think not...

Also, the locker adjacent to our Industrial Arts room is locker number 1403.

04-26-2005, 05:01 PM
Actually on our way to the Georgia Dome, my team and I saw a Sewer grate with 1708 on it.... although it turned out to 170B since the next sewer said 170A ... it still brought up the teams moral on the first day of pit opening.... cus we had alotta work to do!

04-26-2005, 05:09 PM
My team number isn't easy to find(1629), but I admit I've jumped the few times I've seen it...

I have seen other teams' numbers and automatically said the name. A month ago or so someone asked me how many days there were in a year, and I said MOE...I've seen several gas station signs saying the price of gas was $2.22(go Tigertrons!)...and in military time, 4:29 is our time...

HOLY COW! Prices came down to that here also...for SUPER unleaded...regular stayed at about 2.20. I also found myself looking at mile markers on the way to ATL and trying to figure out their team name.

Yeah regular is back up to 2.20 for us now. Gotta love Michigan.


Dang, sorry I guess this has been done. I tried searching but its hard to search "team numbers" or anything similar without getting tons of results to sort. Not to mention, that thread is over a year old. :D

04-26-2005, 05:21 PM
If you get a single thing of french fries at In-N-Out, it comes out to $1.14 with tax. A member of our team noticed this when we stopped for food on the way home from the sacramento regional.

Amanda N.
04-26-2005, 05:44 PM
My team was pretty surprised to discover the location of the Midwest Regional was 525 South Racine.. we thought maybe it would help us win or something, but alas, no luck :( ah well, there's always another year :)

heh, I also got .0525 for the answer to a problem in either my chem or math homework yesterday.. that's always exciting :D

04-26-2005, 05:49 PM
For some reason I always notice when the clock says 8:36. no matter if its day or night. I just happen to look at the clock or my watch and it just happens to be 8:36. Strange?. . .

04-26-2005, 06:02 PM
On the drive down to Atlanta I saw a couple signs with prices of $13.05 and we also happened to enter exit (heh) 229. No matter how long I wait though, the time is never 7:72 :(.

04-26-2005, 06:25 PM
One time our match was scheduled to be at 10:06..........Freaky......

04-26-2005, 06:49 PM
In a bizarro moment, I was thinking about the same thing today! And it's rather funny because I gave a small presentation to my department on what we did over the weekend and I was talking about team numbers (they asked what 1089 meant), and another teacher that came with me found it hilarious that I saw 254 on a street mailbox sign and immediately thought Cheesy Poofs.

The most bizarre moment for me, though, was buying something I wanted from target having a price tagl of 10.89

04-26-2005, 07:29 PM
I have started seeing team numbers everywhere lately. Mostly in questions in Chemistry and Math Analysis. Since we started getting ready for Atlanta and doing more scouting (learning more team names and numbers in the process) I catch myself trying to associate the time with teams.

Plus my alarm clock is set for 6:16 - it makes me a little happier to wake up early.

04-26-2005, 07:30 PM
We are always in a team meeting at 3:41 so that is cool. But on the way down to the philly regional we pass exit 341. And on rare occasions during the daily run to wawa during build season we have totals that come to 3.41 which is awesome!

04-26-2005, 08:09 PM
i see 233 on a regular basis... for gas prices. >.< its amusing to see but it does hurt my wallet when i've got to go to the pump. and i too have been associating team numbers with time and money and such... the price for a bottle of Bawls at the 7-11 near my house is $1.79, so natually i figured "hey look! Children of the Swamp!" and i got mad at a friend of mine who started to take the price tag off. lol i did the "there are MOE days in a year" thing too a few days ago... ^^;

edit/ last year, my locker number was 233... ^_^ my goal is every year to get a locker number associated with a FIRST team... :)

04-26-2005, 08:12 PM
VCU was pretty interesting. We had a win-loss record of 4-0-1 after the first day, and at the team social, we were heading up to the fourth floor classroom to eat: room 401.

04-26-2005, 08:16 PM
Not exactly a team number, but did anybody notice the skyscraper with the big blue and white GP sign on it? I think FIRST is trying to go sublimnal. (Saw it at the "party")

Also, on an unrelated note, did anybody recieve a email from Bob Hughes Photography? The entire photography subteam on my team did...

04-26-2005, 08:19 PM
I work as a cashier in a grocery store so when the final total comes up I always think ok whos number is this, I have now made it into a little game I play. One time I was checking this lady out and my team number popped up and I said Yes Team Fusion baby, the lady kinda looked at me wierd so now i say the team name in my head when the number comes up.

I wish I had a camera for the day that I saw low grade gas at $2.17 and midgrade at $2.29 near me :) Thunderchickens + Clarkson = high gas prices! lol.

04-26-2005, 10:23 PM
Monday April 26, I was order #269 at Taco Bell.

I sure hope that I don't see that as a gas price in the near future. :ahh:

04-26-2005, 11:06 PM
I am so glad there are other people out there like me! My family thought I was weird when I would hear town names or team numbers and I would automaticly associate them with a FIRST team and start rambling off every thing I know about the team.

I made a video for team 97 that turned out to be exactly 5 minutes and 27 seconds in length by coincidence. A member from my HS Team (527) pointed this out to me. So when I actually did 527's video, I made it 5:27 also, this time on purpose.

Katie Reynolds
04-26-2005, 11:10 PM
Ha, yesterday I went to Taco Bell with some friends, and our total was $12.59 (my brother's team!) ... later, I was looking at gas prices and noticed it dropped to $2.34 to $2.29 ... and a girl down the hall mentioned she was moving to room #365 next semester.

We are all very strange (but fun!) people. ;)

Joshua May
04-26-2005, 11:14 PM
Wow, our gas prices are more around $2.69, go Cali. I'm always seeing other team's numbers, and mine a few times. I always seem to be order number 294 at resturants, too. And earlier today, my mom was playing a poker tournament and she had 1110 in chips.

04-26-2005, 11:25 PM
Whenever I see almost any number to four digits long I think of the team with that number, their name, what they wore, etc..
Its almost the only thing where numbers have any significance, so I just see the teams numbers when reading books, when looking at the time, when seeing measurements, you name a place you see a number and I've thought of a team there :o.

04-27-2005, 06:19 AM
Now that you mention it...

The school our team represents (Saginaw Career Complex) starts at 7:03. Hah, I never noticed until now.

04-27-2005, 07:03 AM
I work at a dollar tree, so when someone buys 3 items the total comes to 3.21 (7% sales tax) so when someone pays with 4 dollars (or more commonly a 5 dollar bill,) my register shows the change as .79 or 1.79 both make me smile.

04-27-2005, 07:22 AM
Ah yes and I just remembered that at BAE the fire alarm went off and everyone had to be evactuated at precisely 5:01 PM by the arena clock, just as the Chairman's Awards winner, Team 501, was announced.

Teams in our division at nationals......85
Interstate that runs through Atlanta....... I 85

I see them all the time. You just can't get FIRST off the brain.

04-27-2005, 07:42 AM
This morning I was playing with my phone and checked how many total calls I have ever made on it.........and I had had 1114 calls!

04-27-2005, 08:46 AM
I set my alarm for 7:59 instead of 8pm...
i also know someone who had a phillip 759 phone (i think it was called that)
i also once saw a uboat 759 on a submarine game....

What is that price of gas per? gallon?

04-27-2005, 09:11 AM
In the U.S. the price of gas is per gallon and in Canada, the price of gas is per litre.

On the way to my teaching job at my new school I pass bus number 103 nearly every morning. I also get to see Exit 341 on the Schuylkill Expressway frequently.

04-27-2005, 09:23 AM
ok so...weird one
there were 341 teams at nationals.....
i see it on the clock all the time too
o...and when i was in the airport coming back from nationals, a bught a soda and a soft prezel and it came out to $3.65
hahaha nice job mr. kressly....i see that all the time too...whenever we come back from drexel we always try and remember to take a pic, but we have only remembered once....

My refrigerator outputs 639 watts.

04-27-2005, 09:44 AM
yesterday i was walking around Target and noticed Cheeze its where on sale for $2.54 that definately made me think of the cheesy poofs, and i hear the new star wars movie is goin to be 2 hours and 37 minutes long def though of 237 when i heard that lol.

04-27-2005, 09:51 AM
i walk past buses 71 and 111 every day almost. My wake-up time is 5:30. I get out of school at 2:33 My monitor brightness is at 66 right now. I have a jar on my windowsill with 469 pennies in it. Need i say more?

04-27-2005, 11:43 AM
yea.. whenever i find a house thats adress is 1596.. i laugh. . and ppl give me strange looks.. so its funnier :D. . hehe. .

04-27-2005, 11:52 AM
This is kind of neat... the exit you take to get off of US-23 (on of the main freeways near us) is "Exit 67 - Huron". Thats the only one I've ever really noticed...

04-27-2005, 12:22 PM
i usually do this in math class...i dunno why but when solving equation and i see one of my favorite team's number- i smile :)

it's really cool!! whenever and whereever i am, i hunt for my favorite teams numbers

04-27-2005, 04:11 PM
I forgot to bring my history book to school today, so I just pulled one out of the stack in the classroom: book #401. That's just weird.

Evan Austin
04-27-2005, 05:12 PM
My old high school team number is 447. Recently, while coming back to Vincennes from Evansville, I stopped at a Pilot truck stop for gas in Princeton, Indiana, and the station number was 447. :cool:
The Pilot by my house in Chesterfield, Indiana, is 446.

04-27-2005, 06:14 PM
For us I hope to never see gas prices go up to $3.30!!! even though its about $3.07 here now..(yes thats ridiculous)....
My friend on the team got order #330 at McDonald's right after a pre-season scrimmage...
At the beginning or my friends rookie year on the team he kept mistaking our team number 330 for 303.... this happened many times though the season, so we decided to make him remember our team name by force :D ...
anytime he said 303 in stead of 330 all the students walked over and gave him a light punch on the same arm....
So after a few weeks we here him so "Well its 3:03" and all of the sudden everyone walks over and hits him and he goes "OWWW I WAS READING THE TIME!!!" then everyone just starts busting up laughing..(Of course not him though) ...
ahhh good times goooood times

04-27-2005, 06:22 PM
At nationals, we had a schedualed match for 3:30 PM. We won it too :D

04-27-2005, 07:36 PM
Well, 10:72 isn't a time, and 10 bucks and 72 cents isn't really ever used... our team feels so deprived if attention. ^^;;

04-27-2005, 08:08 PM
Today, I was in keyboarding class, and I had to type page 179 and the first thing that popped into my head...SWAMP THING! Yeah I'm kinda memorizing all these numbers and associating them with my everyday life.

04-27-2005, 08:13 PM
Today I finished a calculus test at 11:14. Now is that good for me, or bad for me? :)

Ya, I was playing this game on my calculator during math class (yes I know, bad), but i set the new high score on this snake like game to 1138. It was very cool. Whenever the time is 11:38, I always point that out to someone on the team and they think that's pretty cool. And hey, look at the time of this post, 11:38 PM

04-28-2005, 02:56 AM
anyone seen an 1167 anywhere? or for that matter, anybody use military time and see 1440? 1180 sounds good too, just not for time

04-28-2005, 07:00 AM
Down by the coast we got the Nautilus submarine (571) and there was also the movie that came out U-571

04-28-2005, 07:16 PM
At the Championship we were queing for one of our matches and the digital clock in the Geogia Dome was at 10:27, we won the match too.

04-28-2005, 07:43 PM
You wouldn't really see 1546 anywhere, but I'm waiting for team 1776. That team will have no problem finding their name and theme.

Don't start me on this.... is what my team would say. I have a full 1 hour powerpoint presentation on the number 47.

Go to Yahoo and search 47.... interesting.

Just a quick one..... Star Trek the next generation has the number 47 in every episode, Pomona college has a curriculum dedicated to the number 47, the college is located on exit 47....... I could go on and on.

Last one.. my plate on my van is CD47, all my phone numbers end in 47 and we won the chairman's award when I was 47 years old.

Need more pm me.

04-28-2005, 08:45 PM
yea, my team number doesn't come up too often, #1, but when i was at a pistons game, i saw so many team numbers appear. my girlfriend and i were joking around with it as each score changed. also on exit signs on the free way. i live right by an exit 71, one I'm familiar with.

04-28-2005, 08:56 PM
When I was getting off my bus today, I saw another bus go by...it was number 71...

04-28-2005, 09:23 PM
I'm used to wake up at 11:56 :D

04-30-2005, 12:45 PM
I think it is awesome to see team numbers in ordinary places. One of our mentors, Mr.Scherman, saw a propane tank (I think that's what it was) that had the number 1108 on it, so he took like five pictures. I don't happen to have them on my computer right now, so I can't post them. It is also funny when when it gets to be 11:08, I'll say something like, "Oh yeah, it's 11:08, that is so awesome!", and all the non-FIRSTers around me think I'm crazy. I love it.

04-30-2005, 07:58 PM
I don't think this is an everyday place but I just got done playing some poker and on the flop came an 8 3 6, however it didn't help me much. LOL

04-30-2005, 08:08 PM
At champs there was an upscale hotel that we would always walk by. It had large text, "One-Ninety-One Peachtree Avenue" engraved in metal.

04-30-2005, 08:19 PM
On my satellite T.V., G4 TechTv is 191, and an address by me is 494. Premium gas at a gas station was 2.45. That and today on the way home from my grandmother's i was looking for licenses plates with team numbers. I saw three that had 67 on them. My soccer number is 33.

05-02-2005, 08:02 AM
Last night the pick 3 numbers were 067.

05-03-2005, 08:28 PM

05-03-2005, 08:53 PM
for the bond proposal here in Pontiac here is some of the votes:

team 191 ha ha ha

05-04-2005, 02:38 PM
I got my prom ticket today it is number 467, I immediately thought Duct Tape Bandits.

05-04-2005, 05:40 PM
Let's see...

When Team 1100 went to the Hartford Regional, I had the interesting luck of being placed in room #811 in the hotel. This was the team I'd been with prior to 1100. The faculty advisor swears he didn't do it on purpose.

Yeah, right.


05-04-2005, 08:11 PM
On the door to our normal meeting place, there is a city ordinance posted: city Ordinance 217...weird...

Also, one of the conference rooms at our place is room 2117, not our team exactly, but pretty close.

05-05-2005, 11:09 PM
I live in a neighborhood with crazy numbers lol.

-168th street is like the police department and close by to my school
-there's like 173rd, 175th, and 180th streets and the street i live on is 179th! (maybe i should name them "Rage street" "buzz street" "spam street" but what about 179th street lol "swamp street" or something else)
-I saw a gas station with the price for regular gas at 2.33
-some of my cousin's liscense plates have 47 and 71 in them!
-um in bowling I bowled a 168, 111, 147, 173 (yea strange!)
-my prom ticket was 114 O_O and my waiting ticket to get that prom ticket was number 20

05-07-2005, 10:42 PM
I'm sure most peple have seen the shirts, jackets, ect. that have random numbers on them. This guy in one of my classes has a jacket that says 686 on the back.. it makes me happy everytime he wears it :)

Ive been seeing the number 111 a lot recently... a friend's apartment number, lots of stuff. A flight a friend was on... oooh and a bus number. There are others.. I should start writing them down. Its probably a conspiracy.. those Wildstang guys are up to something...

License plates (unless vanity plates) for cars are 1 digit followed by 3 letters followed by 3 numbers in CA. I've seen a few 599's, including one that parks in the same lot on the college campus as myself. I've also noticed a 696 around.

1070 is also one of the major talk radio stations in the area. (I figure I can always cheat and use the initial digit on license plates, although the 1's were given out to cars back in the 80's.)

Me and some the other people who have been on our team for a while always notice when its 5:14 at night. One morning a few days before we were leaving for atlanta when my friend called me just to tell me that it was 51.4 degrees outside. I think the weirdest time I've seen our team number randomly was in the airport while we were waiting for our flight to atlanta. Everyone on our team was like hanging in one corner area and on an information board on the wall was a sticker that said 514...we all thought it was pretty cool.

Every year on our way to the Philly Regional we pass EXIT 341 on the expressway. its the last exit before getting off for Drexel U. Everyone on the bus lets out a cheer. The best part is that we are local, so we get to do it for all three days of the comp. :D

05-08-2005, 09:30 PM
I see a lot of 254's these days.

When I am converting centimeters to inches or visa versa, it is 2.54. Yeah it does have the decimal, but I always say to myself in my mind, "The Cheeeesssy Poooofs" in that authentic announcer voice. I really liked their robot this year. It was very effective. Go guys!

05-08-2005, 09:31 PM
My adress is 245 and that is also my team #

05-09-2005, 05:36 PM
I was talking to our programmer who told me that our code was worked out to be 1403 lines. I don't suggest other teams try this, especially if you are in the lower numbers.

I bought gas for $2.22 the night before we went to PARC. I though it was quite a coincidence

05-09-2005, 08:49 PM
I did the same thing, and when traffic got bad I was stoped at mile marker 229, 222 and 217 then traffic cleared up.

05-09-2005, 09:32 PM
1027, your number seems to be stalking me or something, it's everywhere I go. I keep finding myself(or several times, the people in front of me in line) buying things that cost $10.27, I've looked at my watch at 10:27 almost every time it shows up on my watch lately(not intentionally either), and I started my presentation today in English at exactly 10:27. It's a little scary, actually...

A short time after FLR this year, one of our team members saw gas prices at:
$2.37 (maybe wrong bout this one, but definitely sure about the other 2)

all at the same gas station, all those teams, btw, wen to FLR, it was freaky.

05-11-2005, 09:39 PM
#234, our team made thirty or so orders at taco bell to get our number on the reciept. (way home from nats)

My school is taking the California Standardized Testing this week, and on the summative mathematics standards exam, there were 71 questions. Question 60 was the hardest one.

05-17-2005, 06:37 PM
Yes. It's rather funny...I'll be walking down the hall at my school and noting which teams match the numbers. Ex 126 where we host meetings is Gael Force.

716 doesn't come up all that often except in phone numbers and it also happens to be the minimun average you can have (if you're taking 8 classes on a 100 point system) and still make high honor roll at a 90 overall average (it's rounded up).

Also, I see team numbers in the gas prices and area codes.

05-18-2005, 04:42 AM
Ya, I would say this year I seen 322 just about every where before the Regionals. When I was at work I seen a few scores of 322 a few times ( I work for a Laser Storm Arena in Mt. Morris, Mich.). Lets see went to McDonalds a few times and my total was $3.22, I thought that was Strange in a way, I had a order number of 322 at a taco bell, I would really hate to see gas at $3.22. The day we left to go to Atlanta this year, I was at a store in an airport to buy some things, guess what the total was $3.22. :ahh:

Here is something that would be cool to see: someone's actual phone number which combines three FIRST team numbers.

For example: 716-461-1114

and... better yet, have that person be involved in FIRST.

The irony of this absolutely frightened me yesterday. As I was driving my car back from an athletic club, I was travelling down highway 16 (Bomb Squad) when I glanced at my clock to check the time, 2:34 p.m. (Cyber Blue) and as I looked up, I passed exit #179 (Swamp Thing).

And the whole time, I was wearing my Cyber Blue t-shirt!

Recently I've been using (team name)-th a lot in school. And I just realized that after the bell rings in the afternoon, I go by fire alarm #47, down the stairs, out the door, past bus #47, and then to my bus.

I also instinctively notice any familiar team number now. I regard this as being officially addicted to FIRST.

my friend's flight number is 1345 -- which is our team name! i was so upset i wasn't scheduled for the same flight that i called for a flight change -- but they said i'd have to pay 200 dollars for it =(. so much for that...

Andy B.

and better still, have that person be involved with ONE OF THOSE TEAMS.

Well, I think that's true of a lot of phone numbers, at least those with last four digits less than 1700.

716 is the area code for Western New York (I think), i.e. near Buffalo.

At the chinese restaraunt in the omni center, if you order combo #2 (two sides and fried rice) with a medium coke and pay with a $10 bill, your change will come out to $3.22.

Before leaving for Atlanta last year, I bought a magazine and gum in the Airport and my change was 71 cents. This year at the same airport store, my change came up to $3.31 (one cent off)... craaaaazy how the nats champion is predicted with both of these purchases.

*gasp!* so i was reviewing for a chemistry exam, and the two elements were Phosphorus (P) and Titanium (Ti) and then I got 1450 kj/mol and 1450 was next to us in the pits at Championships! and if you put P and Ti together, you get PiT! well, if you make Ti go backwards...the amazing wonders of FIRST! another team number moment brought to us by chemistry....

I was driving to a robotics meeting after work last week, and the truck I was stuck behind was truck #1089. I was on the phone with one of the students on 1089 and we were laughing about it.

Then, when I logged into my other forums there were 1089 new posts since my last visit. XD

What are the chances??

Seeing how my husband runs team 234 and I run team 393, I am always trying to find my number. However, when it comes to hotel rooms, there is never a 393, but always a 234! When I look at the clock, I tend to look at it when it is 2:34! THERE IS NO 3:93! In the county next to ours, there is a state road 234! The only thing I can find with my number is a vending machine phone number in Tampa, FL (i have a picture of it!!) where the last three numbers were 393...and the Wendy's restaurant in Greenfield, IN is store number 393.

Trust me...there are a MILLION 234s out there!! :)

05-27-2005, 08:17 AM
Hi Libby,
here's a funny one to tell your husband. Since you're feeling "left-out" that there are not too many examples of real-life "393", here's a thought.

I bought a book several years ago titled "The secret language of birthdays". It's a combination of astrology, numerology, tarot, and "people-ology"..those born on your birthday.

So, if I do the numerology on your team name:

Six (6) is the devil's number......maybe that's why you and your husband coach separate teams.....ha, ha, ha...Just having some fun with numbers. Keep looking for that elusive "393". Maybe you'l find it in a fortune cookie like all those people recently that won the same PowerBall number.....

And lastly...may the "power of the numbers" be with you and your family during this time in your lives; our thoughts are with you all.....

I went and re-read your "thank you" thread. Want some even weirder "numbers"? Your family's accident occurred on 4/8/2005.
1+2=3....there's lots of good examples of three
a) god, country and FIRST
b) mother, father, children
c) build, compete, win
d) teach, mentor, learn

have a good one....................................

06-03-2005, 11:02 AM
I found this while looking online, after being told about it at nationals during the Vex dinner.

1. Pick any three digit number. (ie 123)
2. Reverse that number. (ie 321)
3. Subract the smaller number from the larger number. (ie 321-123 = 198)
4. Reverse the answer. (ie 891)
5. Add that number to the unreversed number. (ie 198 + 981)
6. The answer will be...1089!!!

Also, another random fact. 33^2 = 1089.

Enjoy these little random facts. ^_^

Also, did anyone else know there's only 1 team in the entire state of Minnesota?

08-22-2005, 03:15 PM
I swear everywhere I look I see a new 67... our team actually started taking pictures of them all for fun, like ACO always has something on sale for $0.67
it's pretty bad when a road in your town is named "FIRST" ....

Well actually on TV. on the show Seinfeld during the episode "The English Patent" in the hospital the room across the hall is room 204. 204 can also be seen in the Movie The Italian Job during the scene where the armored cars depart the ID number on the left side truck is 204.

Well i noticed on my cars odometer it said 0176 after filling up w/ gas a few days later, an in school we had to read up to page 176. I have also looked at a clock an saw 2:29, and saw gas prices in Suffield Ct at 2.29. (Clarkson my b/f's team).

right on i like that phone number

The weirdest thing keeps happening to me, I seem to fall asleep at night when my clock says 11:14 :yikes: , and the gas price in my area has gone above the $1 mark after New Orleans got hit, and I have seen gas prices at the 111.4 cents per litre. :eek:

With 1.59 being a low number with a 9 in the cents digit for money, there are often items at fast food restaurants that are $1.59. The most recent thing I bought was a 40oz Slurpee for $1.59.

During my freshman year, gas was around $1.59, and our team kept getting excited about that. Below is a picture taken of one of these from out the bus window on the way back from the Championship. I wish it still cost that much!

As a member of Niagara first, I happened to be in Niagara Falls to see a movie and when I walked into the actual theater I heard "GREER", I assume it was members of 1503. Oddly enough right at the end of the movie there was a clock with the time that read 11:14. I just laughed. Also when we were on the bus to Atlanta a red chevy truck passes us. I looked at the plate on it and it simply read...."1114" thats all that was on the plate.

On my frist trip to the chesapeak regional we stopped at a qiuznos for food. The receipt came out to be $12.57. We weren't even trying to do that! 12:57 is also my favorite minute of the day. That's about it for all of the ones i've seen.

01-29-2006, 09:00 PM
At Chelsea (Team 1502) we REALLY got close (but no cigar) with our
room number. The phone extension numbers at the school equal
(1000 + room number). We meet and build in room 506, so we're
extension 1506, not 1502. (SOOOOO close!)

No way to get them to renumber the rooms either (darn...) so
I guess we're stuck with it... ;)

But I've heard more than one say, "You know, if we'd only registered
just a BIT later..." <chuckle>

I was doing a google search for team pictures and it came up.
Must be in the stars.

All highways in NJ that allowed tractor trailers have a sign with "102" on it.

If you really want to go crazy, go to Wikipedia and type in your team number!

in the year 174, Marcus Aurelius defeated the Quadi, and Pope Soter died.

In the year 1930, it began on a Wednesday, Pluto was discovered, Twinkies were invented, and Walther Bothe and H. Becker discover the neutron.

Today I finished the team's presentation to the local Kiwanis club at exactly 12:55.

Edit: On complete accident

05-12-2006, 01:32 AM
I don't see my number very often, but 254 pops up all the time...video game scores, late lunch breaks, and i recently noticed a couple of my favorite songs that are 2:54 long :ahh:

05-12-2006, 02:55 PM
:eek: $93 gas! Oh god! :rolleyes: ;)

I wish it would drop to my team number!

On my calc test today I had Team Discovery/6 and reduced the fraction to get H.O.T./3. It was a frightening test, but not for that reason. But I got distracted thinking about the two team numbers, so there you go. And it's 1:21 now! And this is by 126th post. Now I have two thirds of the alliance that won BAE last year... must go find 350 on something.

05-17-2006, 10:22 PM
I use our team number in school regularly... 360 :D

05-18-2006, 02:32 PM
and i sent another email at 10:18pm last night (this is getting wierd) :yikes: ...

05-18-2006, 02:53 PM

Hmm.. interesting...

I like 4:10 in military time (16:10) and we also have a route 616 (Southampton High School Indian Robotics) here not far from my house.

05-25-2006, 12:31 PM
I tend to see team numbers in phone numbers more than anything else. Then yet again, a phone number has quite a few numbers in it! :D

Austin built a new city hall recently. It is at a juncture with Town Lake and the walking paths of the park all around the lake. They've also built matching condos, business suites across the street - everything streamline, neat, tidy but still Austin-ish. One of the buildings is doing some upkeep and at ground level has put up plywood in 3 different windows spanning 1/4 block. Someone has spraypainted 111 in red on each of the plywood panels. As you come off the South First bridge and make that gentle curve you are almost eye level with 111 then 111 then more 111. It's great. I smile every morning on the way to work. Esp. with the early morning runners and their dogs - lowkey, cool, tie-dye.

I was playing with a PID control loop for my ARM robot and realized that I had programmed it 47 times. I had forgotten to plug the programming cable in a couple times and there were a couple of failures, so I redid it for the picture. That is why the times are so close together.

It's not exactly a team number, but I always giggle when I'm reading Oedipus Tyrannus for English. They don't shut up about "going to Delphi." :p

And today, I was watching the movie 61* and I happened to pause it at exactly 1:11:40 (could be read as either 111 or 1114).

Edit: Heh, this also happens to be my 25th post. ;)

05-29-2006, 12:43 PM
1111 was the address of the dorm I stayed at last summer. (I probably won't get that number in the fall, since I'm staying on the opposite side of Maryland.)

Whoa. Yesterday, I posted about pausing my movie at exactly 1:11:40 (1114). Well, later that night, I checked the time at 11:14. When I went up to bed, I looked at the clock in my room, which I still haven't set forward an hour (hey, I just changed my calendar from March to May, give me a break! :p), and the time, according to that clock was 11:14.

Also, my dad was in a 5K run today, and at the end, they were announcing the raffle winners. The guy with number 25 won the tv. ;)

I see team numbers all the time at my job. I work at the deli counter at a bustling local produce market. For one, I see the numbers of teams 1 - 99 on the "Now serving: ##" display.
Also, each product, has a code associated with it to be entered into the scale to produce a price tag. For instance, Krakus Polish Ham is #65. Mmm, Polish Huskies. :p
1403 is Land 'o Lakes White American Cheese. Just a sample of the hundreds of products.
Oddly enough, I have no clue what code #67 is. :rolleyes:

06-10-2006, 05:13 PM
I know this topic is kind of old, but recently, I've been getting 87 for everything! I was customer 87 in both WaWa and Pat's Pizza. The clincher, the pizza ended up costing me $8.70 to the cent! Omen? Or destiny?

Also, the temperature for our team party is going to be 87*F.

06-10-2006, 08:40 PM
On a history test I took the other day, the answer to number 16 was 29. I wanted a picture, but my teacher wouldn't let me....*sigh*

I've gotten $1.75 in change three times in the past two days. It's really beginning to freak me out a bit.

Driving back from the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland I saw a lot of 25's, 65's and one or two 75's.....oh, and a $3.41 gas price

I just got back home from a youth conference thing at East Carolina University. The point is that the number of the dorm I stayed in was 611. I couldn't help thinking about it.

When ever I look at the clock and it is a team number I recognized I will say it's wildstang o'clock (or whatever time it may be). And then everyone kinda just gives me a weird look.

Yesterday when I was driving home from Yankee Stadium, there was an oil truck in front of us and it had the number 177 printed really big on the back. It was rather comical, I made my dad take a picture

on a recent trip to the family island, our boat mooring number was 1712... that was a little creepy. and i saw bunch of different licence plates that were odd to me at first, then it hit me, the digits on the plates were team that are quite notable, including


little strange huh?

07-18-2006, 07:46 AM
So when I see Monster Energy drinks I see a number not an "M"

this year our team came up with a new saying (i think i kinda came up with it) "it's 1126 time!!!" so whenever i look at my clock or where ever i am i always notice that the time is 11:26. and i just smile and think of robotics :D

Since nationals, I've done the same.

While at WPI Frontiers, my three other team members and I added together our team numbers to make 3434 (177, 228, 1403, 1626), and called ourselves "Team 3434 - Rolling Thunder."

07-21-2006, 04:53 PM
Everytime I see something bearing the number 25 I have to sit down and cry a little bit...

07-22-2006, 07:35 PM
I discovered just the other day in Illinois $14.03 the change at Wendy's for a turkey and swiss freshcata (?) sandwich combo with a water bottle
More or less I laughed
I had a lot more but it's been a long week and I so didn't get any sleep at IRI so too bad

07-22-2006, 07:48 PM
I placed an order for photos online and the number of photos came out to 102 *scratches head* lol. Who would have thought that. The photos were from a concert I attended yesterday. Ironically, we pulled into my drive (in the pouring rain) this morning at 1:02am from the concert lol. That number just seems to keep popping up lol

Alexa Stott
07-22-2006, 09:51 PM
Haha, in gym class, we actually had a team 102 frisbee when we were playing ultimate frisbee. I guess it was something that they gym teachers found lying around after Brunswick Eruption (remember-Nov. 4th, 2006! /shameless plug) or something. But it was kinda cool.

07-22-2006, 10:16 PM
hmmmmm..... 1625 a little hard to come by. I will take a picture though. (a good photographer always has his camera ready......unless its broken)

07-23-2006, 03:55 PM
oh yeah
its not really a team number
but while driving through chicago I saw 'Elgin's Dairy Shop' (Dairy something at any rate)

(that and a "Postal Police" car... ?!)

Morgan Gillespie

Did it have a large clock anywhere in or around it?

Ahhhh this is true!!! My friends think I'm crazy for always having my camera... I'm camera CARAZZZZY!!!!!! lol. The day my camera breaks... is the day I become very sad and perform emergency surgery on it lol.

07-23-2006, 07:24 PM

I saw it from the highway [thus the sad lack of picture] ... just an ugly brown building with white scroll writing

07-25-2006, 10:33 PM
i just went to cedar point and u got a call number for your food and ours was 234 and that day i was wearing our shirt to

07-31-2006, 07:09 PM
yeah, I never see my team anywhere but I always see the numbers of other teams. See plenty of teams when I look at the clock or at the gas prices hehe, maybe they should add a 12:70 to the time. :D

07-31-2006, 07:57 PM
I hear '1885' referenced to Mark Twain and NYC all the time.

08-01-2006, 10:20 AM
Whenever I look at the clock in the afternoon, it's always 2:34. Kinda freaky!!

08-05-2006, 08:09 PM
I always look at the clock at 3:54 and I always start yelling 354! 354! 354! Hehe. Or if I'm walking by houses and sometimes their address is a team number :yikes: , I get happy! ^^;;
