  • The number 196833 pops up a lot in Planetary. It's the speed of light in km.

No it isn't. The speed of light in km is meaningless. The speed of light in km per second is 299792.

What happened to the page image? You know, the "9 Persons, 9 Doors" thing?

Looking at the history, Nummeh Cake removed the image without explanation

Well you can re-add it with a reason ( I don't think it qualifies as an Edit War yet) or take it to The Image Pickin' forum to make it official

Its been months, and I have seen no explanation or reason on why it was deleted. Especially when it fits perfectly with the trope and no better example was mentioned. Im considering the act of deletion of that pic as wiki vandalism. I'm putting the original picture back on the page.

“There were 9 people who touched the One Ring (Sauron, Isildur, Déagol, Sméagol, Bilbo, Frodo, Gandalf, Tom Bombadil, Sam).”

Gandalf avoided touching it. If the scene where he picks it up with tongs counts, then how about the Elves in Rivendell who put it on a chain?

23 Engima is a "real thing" or the concept at least exists in the real world. And as happy as I am to see Discordians getting credit for something (even something as bad as Jim Carrey's The Number 23), I'm fairly sure this was actually started by William Burroughs.

The number 15 appears in Bleach alot. Ichigo's bedroom has the number 15 on it and hes 15 when the series starts. His birthday is the 15th of July (listed in official character book). Even his name broken up "Ichi" and "go" are the japanese numbers for 1 and 5. Shūhei Hisagi and Kensei Muguruma both have a tatoo of the the number 69 and 6+9=15 but this could just be a coincidence.

2501 is an important number in the Ghost in the Shell films (not Solid State Society which is a sequel to Stand Alone Complex) as it is the project number of the puppet master (in GITS 1) and a secret code between Motoko and Batou (in GITS 2).

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
