47 hits me again!

Posted by atari2600land, in 47 sightings 25 May 2015 · 130 views

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 · 222 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 · 140 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

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 · 184 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 · 191 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...


47 sightings - 11/15/12

Posted by atari2600land, in 47 sightings 15 November 2012 · 324 views

OK, since yesterday marked 47 more days to go until the end of the year, I've decided to have a 47 sighting blog entry. Well, about a week ago, my hometown paper reported that there have been 47 people dying so far in the state of Oregon due to traffic fatalities this year. Making the rounds on Google News, we find that smartphone sales as well as Pet...

With 47 days until the election, Romney's "47% remark" was a big topic of debate. Now there's only about 40 some odd days. Actually, come Monday, it will be early next month! What's even more interesting is Romney and Obama haven't even had their first debate yet! Anyway, was working on Super Giuseppe! some more. Damn...


47 in the news

Posted by atari2600land, in 47 sightings 06 September 2012 · 217 views

Hey gang. I'm convinced Mitt Romney likes the number 47. In searching for 47 in the news, most of the Presidential polls have Romney at 47%, with Obama at 43-44%, though in Fla. that's a bad thing for Romney, as Obama has 48%. I guess that just goes to show you how equal the US political parties are split up. Now I don't want to go into politics...
