May the fours be with you!
but four is an extremely unlucky number in japanese and chinese culture :(
For real? That's interesting... I know they occasionally remove 13th floors and steps and stuff but that's news to me... any other numbers I should be aware of? Wonder why 4 is an unlucky number?
in japan they remove the 4th floor in most hospitals because the original word for four sounds like death or something. also 7, but it's not has bad as 4. i dont remember the details. and in chinese i think four sounds like a word meaning like bad fortune or something, whereas the word for eight rhymes with the word for rich. i think that's what i was told years ago
Thanks for the interesting tidbit of numerical knowledge! I wonder how Japanese people react to Star Wars...
they probably just end it all
WNG misses you Elephy!
Was going to say I can relate but looks like I already posted here! :O Interesting trails of conversation past...
How's life yo?
Oh man, just a bit more than a year later and I'm back to refresh recently forgotten knowledge of numerical omens from the other side of the world... memory: must improve.
How's it going lately though? Still alive? Still logged in from time to time? The Daily Haiku project's still on the climb. :)
Oh wow ya it's been a while. I log in from time to time but as a matter of fact, I didn't notice your comment and other here since they become lost in the flood of notifications which come from the haiku thread :D Thanks for checking in man, I'm doing well and it's good to hear the haikus are still rolling!
lmao. XD Now that you mention it that's bound to bring in a looooot of notices, and I'm probably a reoccurring name there too huh... good to hear all is well anyway! It's an addicting thing, that thing. Easy to keep writing but hard to really stay inspired.
