Anyone do this in their immature youth on their calculators?

7734206.

Thats my favorite one. Just type it in a calculator and you will know.

It makes me chuckle everytime I see "486, 386, 286, etc" and other such numbers I recognize from computers. In books, when I get to page "386" or something, I'm always wishful of a mention to the 386 processor. Never is one.

Billy Bob Gates: You don't get it, it doesn't matter


Obviously that still applies to stuff made by Microsoft. :twisted:

Try 58008-618 in a calculator and turn it upside-down.

LOL Dreadstorm! Never knew that one. Also, very creative on Chuck(G)'s part. Wow. Not something I would have ever noticed. I once had a teacher, Lizzie, who could put her name in a calculator.

When I was in the 4th grade we didn't even have calculators! (I can't imagine anyone finding that stuff funny by the time they hit 5th grade)...

We had a whole story that involved a bunch of calculations and the final number was 55378008, and the outcome of the story.
