Oh sure, "specifically", but what about implicity? We got three needs, that's the magic number 3. 17 letters in total and 17 is prime. The number of letters in the second word (7) times the number of letters in the third word (6) gives us that one number (you know what it is). There are a lot more possibilities here, I feel, but you get the idea.

Magic numbers are things people make up to fill in the plot-holes of reality. To help make sense of a sometimes senseless existence. Personally, I think they should try the linguini. :fsm_yarr:

You know what? We should create an illustrated list! Just to keep them all in order, and such.

Yes, but the thread title didn't say, "The Human Race Needs Magic Numbers!"

sorry! I was just making a little joke... commentary if you will... I wasn't really Bickering.

and you might be able to do that. save the forums somehwere else on the web, and turn www.venganza.org/forum/index.php into a page with just a lecture about bickering.

but please don't.

why would you want that to happen? you WANT to be isolated from this wonderful place, and its wonderful members?
