    Okay, I'm the guy that loves this kind of thing. I get all excited when my odometer has the same number all the way across or counts up, etc.

    Well, I took a screenshot:

    In Chinese culture, certain numbers are believed by some to be lucky or unlucky based on the Chinese word that the number name sounds similar to. However some Chinese people regard these beliefs to be superstitions.

    1 - 一

    2 - 二 - easy

    3 - 三 - live

    4 - 四 - considered unlucky since 4 in Chinese (sì) sounds like the Chinese word for death (死).

    5 - 五 - the self, me, myself, nothing

    6 - 六 - easy and smooth

    7 - 七 - together

    8 - 八 - sudden fortune, prosperity 8888

    9 - 九 - long in time

    I'm hoping for fortune and prosperity. My mom always told me that if I got all my ducks in a row that good things would happen.


    Well...



    How about getting all my chickens in a row? That's got to be even better, right?
