714 Signifigance
Hey, today is 714. Somehow this number has gained near cult following signifigance. What do you know about this number.

Here is what I know

1) The original number on the Qualude.
2) Badge number on the "Dragnet" TV series.
3) House number on the "Rosanne" show.

Do you know of any other references that use this number ?


Cheers
Drifter

well, I knew about the "lude" thing, since then 714 has been what I consider my lucky number. (sorry no details ;-) )

It was also the birth weight of my son.

11. Thanks everyone ...
for your participation. I had forgotten about Hank Aarons home run total, even though this number was not actually chosen (rather achieved).

I'm still scratching my head over the Roman Numeral posts. I don't quite understand these (feel free to elaborate). Less of course they are meant to be jokes.

Cheers
Drifter

PS - what are yoiu doing at 4:20 today ? YOW!!

14. Mostly Joking
7 = VII

1 = I

4 = IV

put together

VIIIIV which is the same in either direction.

Or '714' = DCCXIV if you want to be serious.
