Just got a random call from a kid whose phone number was pi:

Just awesome like that
No joke. He called me three times, acted like a prank caller, and then hung up after I was rude to him. I didn't realize that his number was the first 10 digits of pi until after the fact. And, after looking up the number on 800notes, I'm not the first this has happened to.

Also, his voice sounded like Fred's.

Insert witty and clever quip here.

I don't know.
Is your phone number 271-828-1828, then? Because that would be hilarious and awesome.

And then it would be even better if you guys also called 7778 634 663 (SQRT NEG ONE, or i).

Well, I guess that the i phone number would have to be unused for maximum math jokeness.

And to say I was nervous...
it wouldn't be quite enough.

[up]Haha, as cool as that would be, that is not a reality.

Well, either way, out of curiosity, I called the number back and found that it's not a working number. Suspicious. A couple searches later, I found out about the existence of this: http://www.iphonefaq.org/archives/97428

VERRRRRY suspicious.

^ Ahh phone spoofing. Been around for many many many years. (Since the 1970s at least.)

And I only clicked on this thread hoping to make an e joke. Too late.

[up][up]That long, eh? I was aware you could do that (even if I didn't know you could do it so easily), but I didn't know it's been around that long.

Anyway, my friend dropped the charade the next day after I got really pissed off at him about it.

I've heard of somebody getting a call from the number 404. Like, just that.

Did the person from that number say his name was error?

I kind of hoped it was real. Like there was really someone with the number 314-159-2653 or something. But I'm pretty sure that if that number existed nerds would probably pay extra money to have it.

Oh wow, my area code is 314, my first thought was that someone from St. Louis was calling you!

Huh, never realized that I have Pi for an area code. Cool!

[up]I'll say this, it came up as being from Missouri at least.

@Yamii Denryuu: Yes, exactly that.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
