Frog - 2222 ?
    #2412746 - 03/09/04 11:47 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

i noticed Frog's number of posts looks to be consistently 2222.... how and why is this? im especially curious cuz both me and a friend of mine seem to be seeing this number everywhere.

I had gone to bed, but I felt that one of life's mysteries was going unanswered tonight, so I got back up and logged into the shroomery and voila!  Here was the question and the mystery that I was going to bed, left unsolved, or something. 

It's no longer "2222".  I'm sorry for going to bed with my number of posts at such an unusual number.  Someone once had "666" posts, and I told that person that he absolutely had to post so that the number would change.

All is now well in the world.  'Night.  (Maybe.)  :grin:

Once I worked at a grocery store and as I totaled a woman's order up, the sum was $6.66.  She bought some gum because she couldn't have that. :lol:

A friend of mine who worked at a grocery store was at the register one night. This dude wearing a cap that said "CHRONIC" and who was totally stoned walks up and buys some stuff, and it totals 4.20. The dude was just like "fuck yeh" and paid for his shit. Haha.

Funny how numbers freak us out, as if they mean something.  I told the story once about getting 13K on Friday the 13th and buying ice cream and champagne  for $13 (and was promptly accused of buying cheap champagne :grin: ).  I now buy lotter tickets on Friday the 13th, when they come around.

222 has been appearing in my life solidly for the past 4 years, but it goes further back I discovered. I realized that my doctoral dissertation written and published in '83 is 222 pages long. Taco Bell is $4.44 on receipt #222. I wake up and look at the clock in the middle of the night, or glance up from the computer and it's 2:22. I meet my Lady in Borders Books and Music, yep, store number is 222 and the call to the info desk is extension 222.

I brought this up and Cosmic Joke sent me a link to The Meru Project which is Qabalistic and numerological. The end and goal of Qabalistic practices on a sacred square turns out to be 222. The process begins with 111 (another number, along with 444 that sometimes pops up).

I'n not a numbers person, but this number has been attributed by the above schools with mystical significance. I may buy the Meru material.

For me, the clock thing would be "8:08". Once I was waiting to do shrooms, and then I decided to take them then, and it had just turned 8:08, so I consumed them quick as hell! :grin: But hell ja, 8:08 is MY time, and the numbers represent the name "Bob". How cool is that? :wink:

Once me and my keyboardist were all baked and we went to rent movies from the supermarket. We rented How High and Blow, and it totalled $4.20. :lol:
Peace. :mushroom2:

Sorry I'm an Englander, what is the 4.20 joke about?

I can't currently see any relation between MJ and $4.20?

Back when i was young and first started smoking pot, me and my couzins would have to hang out around the park or the store while we were stoned because we were too paranoid to go home. I swear atleast 3 times a week someone would ask me the time or i would look at my watch and it was exactly 4:20. Other times it was close. Nowadays it's the number 11:11 or 5:55. I see one of these atleast once a week. To me it means nothing really. I read somewhere that this ment an angel was around you and you should make a wish (don't know why). It was only after i read this that i started noticing it so i don't pay it much mind. Although i'll admit when i catch the 11:11 i do make a wish for the hell of it. The last one i made came true.

420 is the police code for possesion of marijuana (not sure if it still is). On April 20th (4/20) there is almost like an international smoke out day. Wich we smoke just as much as we do on any other day but we do it with a celebrating purpose i guess. I thought 420 was an international thing but i guess not.

As for me it is the cloock thing of 11:11 duno why but it seems almost every time at look at the clock it that. I even wake up and its that time bu yeah i think its all down to projecting meaning on to numbers the the sub-concious takes over and patterns start to develope.

I always see 10:10. The thing is, it could be binary.

the 420 thing is pretty controversial. Some say it was a police code for pot smokers, others say it was a 'club' that met after school every day to toke, and 4:20 was their time. Either way, it came from california.

I've heard two things about 420:

1. its the police code for pot
2. Somewhere in Cali there was a house where you could get really good dank and the street adress was 420.

1. It's not the police code for pot (at least, not here.. it may be different in different places)
2. Of course...cali. All the stories I've heard that are different say cali. So the common denominator is california.

I also heard that since 4/20 is Hitler's birthday a bunch of stoners back in the day decided to celebrate it and the number by peacefully getting blazed, thus negating the evil spirit of Hitler with their joyous smoke.

So it's like the fabled guy on acid who thought he was on orange, (or a glass of orange juice... depending on who you ask :wink: ) and was stuck that way forever.. and just sat in the corner afraid to be peeled. heh.
