Every comment and reply is a 'ticket" - the more you discuss, the better

2nd Chance: 
Send me images of 42s you find. Every picture is a 'ticket'.

Does this ever happen to you?

I got a Car2Go card a few weeks back. Car2Go is a network of rentable cars (SMART) in many cities. All you need to rent a car is a card and a 4-digit PIN. One of the reasons I don't really need a car anymore...

I never noticed those Car2Go Smart's before - but since I got the card, I see them everywhere... 



Weird isn't it? Everone has that. Could be a car, a song, an image, or a number. 

Like 42. 

By now even the most unattentive reader must have figured that the number "42" means a lot to me. 

Its silly, there are many other great numbers out there... I know.

All through my life and especially since I work on this project, the number 42 seems to be everywhere...

See some of the examples I mean - Some of them have unbelievable stories. True stories, Bro!

Find some examples in my every growing Picasa-Web Library.

Send me images of 42 to visionsof42<<AT>>beeblebrox>>DOT<<de for your chance to win a GREAT PRIZE today - I won't reveal what it is yet ;) Every single picture counts as "1 Ticket". Please make sure you own the rights to the pictures! If there is a story to be told, tell it bro! Write me, what number has a special meaning to you!

I will post all postable entries either in a blog entry or a video - with mentioning of your name, so please include the name/aka, country and city in your email! :)


Like all other giveaways, this one goes on until we reveal the GIVEAWHAT? If you like, you can comment that you participated. 

And don't forget to JOIN THE REVOLUTION. Can you FEEL IT COMING?

  1. My favourite number is 4. I don't know exactly why anymore. Just one of those things when you are a kid. I believe it started by being my number in my class and for some reason just stick with it.

    1. I've never really liked 4. Not that there's anything wrong with it. Me and 4 just don't get along.

  2. My favorite number is 20. When I was young my father would play a game with me called 21. Basically you start at 1 and count up by either 1 or 2 numbers. Whoever has to say the number 21 would lose. So if you say 20 you will win the game.

  3. I don't have a favorite number per se, but I do have a number of numbers that keep cropping up around me. 7, 8 are two of them - they seem to be everywhere I look! If I am reading a book I'll notice that when I put it down it's on a page ending with a 7 or 8, sort of scary! The other odd thing with me, is that when ever I look at the time on a digital clock, it's always double numbers, for example: 17:17 or 19:19 etc

    Hope your well, happy painting! ;)

  4. Hmm...it would be 13 for me. I started it when I was a kid. I think I just wanted to be counterculture and show that the fear of the number 13 was just a superstition.

    1. So are you very lucky, unlucky, or just regularly lucky?

  5. My favourite number has always been 3. 3 is great and you can find it everywhere. Some say: 3 is always one to much, but this isn't true :-). 3 is the beginning of a family. 3 is the smallest group that is possible. I loved the 3 ??? when I was younger and I was born on 30.03.

  7. For me it is 13 also.
    When most of the more supersticious people always cried about Friday 13th, i had the best days on friday 13th. And it is part of my Birthday being the reason why i had precious good days on friday 13th :-D

    1. friday the 13th is always jsut the same as any other day for me. Except when my cat got run over. Or when my house burned down. Or that one time I went on vacation and my passport was declined and I was stranded 2300miles from home. But besides those things its great!

  8. I would say 8, or 88, but probably not 888. I also like 10, but only because it makes math easy. Other than that it's just 8(8).

    1. Oh, and I was due to be born on 08-08-88. I was born like 20 days later though, so I can't really claim that.

    1. Well in that case, mine are 7, 28, and 12. Those seem to be much better favorite numbers than 8 and 88. I think I have some new favorite numbers in honor of love.

  16. My favourite number is the 356 - I don´t know why but every time someone asks me for a random number the 356 is the first I´m thinking of.
    Aaaand if you look for a certain number you can find it everywhere :-)

    2. Is it possible anyway to choose a random number as human beeing? ;)
      Don´t think so!

    3. This kinda shows that we can't even pick rock, paper, or scissors randomly. http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/science/rock-paper-scissors.html

    4. And some random numbers from 1 to 356 is: 139, 289, 165, and 117.

  18. my favourite number is 23 because it's 'magick' ;)

    ReplyDelete
  19. 13 for me also. Birthday on the 13th and given the bad rep it normally gets it seems to be crying out for some love.

  20. Favourite number is 22, first house I bought.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Do you mean this was the house number, or the price? I would totally buy a $22 house! (On second thought, there must be something terribly wrong with it if it's $22).

      Delete
  21. I'm not sure if I have a favorite number....maybe 7.

    But, after reading Stephen King's 'Dark Tower' I did start noticing groupings of 19 everywhere. You know, counting trees in a field, counting pallets at the factory, things like that.

    ReplyDelete
  22. My favorite number is also 4, I like that it is both 2x2 and 2^2 and the first non-prime.

    ReplyDelete
  23. My favourite number is 2. Honestly, I've not really got a clue why, I just like it...

    ReplyDelete
  24. My favourite number is 11. I have no idea why, maybe because it looks cool?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It was one of the easiest to learn for multiplication as a kid. 11x3=33, 11x6=66.

      Delete
  25. Okay, so based on the discussion, my new favorite numbers are 7 and 28.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. (I decided 12 wasn't that cool after all)

      Delete
  26. Okay, I'm a tiny bit confused, what do you mean by "Is there anything else you started noticing when you bought something?". The question is a bit vague and I have no idea how I would answer it.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I always liked the number 4 because thats the number of limbs we have...also most of my favorite animals have 4 limbs. XD

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That makes sense, but 4 always seemed a bit evil to me... As if it's up to something.

      Delete
  28. i like the no 1334, basicly as it was used by my fav artist rozz williams (rip). otherwise, 13 it is...

    ReplyDelete
  29. Mine is 22. I think a 2 is a typographical good looking number. And what is better than just one "2"? Yes! TWO TWOS! so let it be 22 ;-)

  31. Edit: I was responding under the wrong post (so many contests at the same time!)

    my favorite number is zero because I think it is the most interesting conceptually. It represents both negative and positive values, and alternatively neither at the same time. Numbers cannot be divided by zero because any number multiplied by zero cannot return that value. Any number to the power of 0 is 1, and 0 to any power is 0 (except 0 to the power of 0 which is undefined).

    In computer science 0 becomes even more interesting conceptually as it begins representing states, starting points, etc.

  32. My special number is 1862, because it is the ground size of my final place to be for the next, uhm, 40 years at least...Well, time will show!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Its the 13. So many reasons, all said before :P
