Subject: ISBN 47

I've just finished reading Patrick Tilley's Amtrak Wars sexology (or
hexology, if you prefer), and I noticed that the ISBN's of the books were
all 0-7474-five other numbers.

I am not aware of any other 47's I may have missed in the series -
perhaps someone else has some?

Subject: ad man 47

[this from the guy who works on the miller lite ads:]

If you love the number 47, you're going to love this:  every time my
designer friend Steve Sandstrom and I do a project that requires a
number, we use number 47.  So far it's shown up on posters for a bagel
company in the Midwest, on postcards for Tazo tea, on materials for a
film production company in LA called Pavlov Productions and on a slip of
paper saying "inspected by number 47" to be inserted in every videotape
sent out by FilmCore editing in LA and SF.

Additionally, when I underwent a transfusion of white blood cells
recently in Seattle, I asked how long it would take before I noticed
something. The doc responded, "the median response time is 47 days."

I'm a believer.

I ordered take-out Chinese food last night. While standing line I heard
them call out numbers 72 and 73, yet somehow my order number was ... 47.

Page 1 chapter 1
CAMILLE (La Dame aux Camelias) by Alexandre Dumas fils

This is how these details came to my knowledge.  On the 12th of March 
1847, I saw in the Rue Lafitte a great yellow placard announcing a 
sale of furniture and curiosities....
