Research papers are due February 6

(x-posted to my own journal)

So I was looking at the profiles of my teachers for the first semester of college, and as it turns out, the number of my English teacher's office is 206. Especially interesting is the fact that it should be my college English teacher, because so far, my high school English teacher is the only teacher that I've mentioned any of my findings involving 206 (and other numbers) to. Hmm...

Mulder, this isn't an's 206!

I just noticed that there are 202 episodes of the X-Files. Of course, that isn't 206, but since there are two X-Files movies, and each one is about twice the length of an episode of the show, they can be counted as four more episodes, bringing the grand total to 206 :D

More 206's!

I drew this T-shirt, and thought that if anyone else still visits this community, they'd be interested: (backstory of why I drew it)

The various representations of 206 on the shirt:

- "2×103"
- bases 2, 8, 10 (of course), 11, 12, 16, 20, and 36
- square & cube roots of 206
- square & cube of 206
- reciprocal of 206
- Roman, Greek, Chinese, Mayan, Babylonian, and Egyptian numerals
- "February 6" (2/06 if the month is written first)
- "June 2" (2/06 if the day is written first)
- Î (what you get when you type Alt+0206), ╬ (what you get when you type Alt+206), and Ȇ (what you get when you go into Character Map, open advanced view, and type 206 for "Go to Unicode")

The color scheme of the shirt is based on my grapheme→color synesthesia - the purple background comes from my perceived colors of 2, 0, and 6 all mixed together, while the blue of the heart comes from how I perceive 2 once it's absorbed a little color from 0 and 6.

Also, while working on it, I noticed in one of MS Paint's default colors:

Two hundred and AWESOME!!

WHOA! I'm glad I finally found a community like this, because I've been obsessed with the number 206 (and some other numbers) for a while now, especially since a good amount of my experiences with 206 somehow involve Schrödinger's Enya (my nickname for a person on LJ that I'm convinced could be Enya, my #1 celebrity crush). I sure hope some of the members of this community are still active...

Sometime back in January I was sitting in a train at the main station in Zurich, and far away I saw the numbers for the parking areas displayed - you know, how many empty spaces they currently had.

This is what I saw:
