    Numbers Annoy Me

    My entire life, since I have been able to do math in my head, I have calculated things.  House numbers, street signs, magazine articles, phone numbers and everywhere else..  I add them, subtract them, multiply and divide them.  It becomes so bad sometimes I have to close my...

    Ever since I was a young girl,

    I have always been mystified by numbers. My obsession started in second grade. I was constantly adding, subtracting, and dividing numbers. My obsession continued through primary school. In middle school I discovered something that made my numbers obsession worse: playing cards...

    I See The Number 343

    I'm not sure what it means but I tend to see the number 343 at least once a day. It's not a conscious decision and I find it's very strange that I see this particular number even when I'm not looking for it. It all started in High School and has continued for the last three...

    Obsession .. With Even Numbers

    I am very partial to even, especially 2 and all numbers that are divisible by 2 and end up with a 2 in the end. I go to the extent of choosing licence plates that either 2 or end up with a 2 or when added up result in a number that is divisible by 2. Some how I feel this has...

    than 2 digits and then have to add them up until I get to 1 digit. Driving, I see county road 1604, 11, 2. My favorite number is 7, the odd number with "even" in it. If you have two 7's, turn the seven on the left around, move it very closely to the 7 on the right, you can form...

    I'm completely obsessed with 3

    and 6. There's just something to be said about odd numbers. they feel right. I like one dot on the left, one on the right, and nothing would ever be okay without a dot right there in the middle. If I go through extensive effort for something and must relate the tribulations to...

    I'm A Sixer.

    I find great beauty in the number 6. It's the only number that this is true for. A+B+C=X and (A)(B)(C) =X, being a member of the family of 3's certainly adds to its beauty. I realise I find this number everywhere because I seek it out. I find it rather useful for...

    Found a group I can relate to and when I quickly checked some of your stories and realized this might not be a good group for me. OCD is nothing to play around with. I'll stay, but don't count (HAHAHA) on me coming back to read.
