A 47 Odyssey

Posted by atari2600land, in 47 sightings 20 October 2016 · 49 views

I thought since I haven't done this for a while that I should start writing more about my experiences with the number 47.
On channel 47, which is The Weather Channel here, they have a show called "23.5 Degrees." I don't know the significance of the number 23.5, but if you double it, you get the number 47.
And of course, 47 popped up in my recent Odyssey p...

47 in abundance

Here are some recent 47 sightings.
- The Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center will be 47 feet wide this year.
- I was listening to the audio commentary on the last episode of season 1 of "Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell," and some guy said he had his air conditioning on to 47 degrees.
- The bill at my local shopping trip to Trader Joe's (a local grocery...

47 movie

Posted by atari2600land, in 47 sightings 24 September 2015 · 216 views

Not very many 47 sightings recently. There is a big one though. There's a movie called "Hitman: Agent 47". I was surprised reading through the movies part of the paper. If they shaved a minute off of the film, it would have been 1 hour and 47 minutes long. I am also surprised "Jurassic World" is still in theaters. Also, some guy in the Life section got in...

47 hits me again!

I've been seeing the number 47 a lot more lately. A few sightings:
- I was flipping through the channels when I saw this religious channel and some guy was talking about Psalm 47.
- The incumbent Polish president lost the Poland election. He only got 47% of the vote.
- The Seattle Zoo's oldest gorilla, named Nina, died at age 47.
- My local Wal-Mart has b...

The return of 47!

Posted by atari2600land, in 47 sightings 08 November 2014 · 384 views

I spotted a lot of 47s recently. I was flipping through the channels and landed on South Park somehow and it was the one about the Jakovosaurs on a game show and it said "47." Then, there was on another channel, an ad for a health plan that cost $47 a month. And, the high in Lakeview, Oregon a few days ago was forecasted to be 47. And the stupid digital T...

47 coming up a lot again.

Posted by atari2600land, in 47 sightings 16 April 2014 · 234 views

So I just posted in the GoSub 2 thread over @ the videopac.nl forums. Right now I just made my 47th post on it. Was reading the newspaper, and if Oregon approves gay marriage, someone estimated that it could bring in $47 million to the state's economy. And an old Headlines on Jay Leno segment, a typo made a young-looking couple married for 47 years. It's...

Well, I haven't seen the number 47 for quite some time. It came back in full time, at least here. The temperature was 47 earlier. I was flipping through the channels and saw an episode of Castle titled "47 Seconds." And of course, there's the movie adaptation of the 47 Ronin. Last month, there was a billboard in the south part of town about a car that got...

Today must be my lucky day

Posted by atari2600land, in 47 sightings 09 June 2013 · 193 views

I went out with mom to a few places for shopping. At Trader Joe's, she spent $47.02. I heard the guy that was behind me too. His total was $8.47. I went to Fred Meyer to get an ink cartridge. When I got home, I noticed the cardboard in the ink cartridge's packaging had the number 47 stamped on it. So I installed it and since I worked on...

Cheap Necklace!

Posted by atari2600land, in 47 sightings 31 March 2013 · 272 views

47 has been in a lot of places recently. For example, a postal worker guy in a commercial said he worked for 47 different companies. Or the big one: Due to a typo, in a Macy's catalog, you can get a necklace worth $1500 for just $47. Right now at Boston Logan Airport, the temperature is 47. I know since I'm watching the Weatherscan chann...

Super Bowl 47

Posted by atari2600land, in 47 sightings 03 February 2013 · 295 views

It's been a while since I've done a 47 sightings blog entry. 47 people were in that bus that crashed in Pendleton. Conservatives outnumber Liberals in 47 out of 50 states. But the big 47 event is, you guessed it, the 47th Super Bowl. It would be cool if one team scored 47 points. The '49ers should be called the '47ers, but those lazy miner...
