i grew up in number 38
largest has been 78
but my student house was 884.
so not me then
I have lived in 9, 18 and 36. Now that I know I haven't lived in 27 I'll be bothered by this forever.
i am really pleased by this
luv me some multiples of 9.
4, 6, 11, 11a, 12a, 19, 38, 47, 89
that's all the ones i've lived in. the average (if you discount the letters) is 26.3
We'll probably all be beaten by a North American, they have numbers in the thousands.
once PocketMouse was like, "WOW, THAT MUST BE THE LONGEST ROAD"
that was fun
I win, because the a's dont get used until you're out of numbers
ergo: YR HOUSE WAS SMAAAAAALLLLLLL
12 before that
Had a room 405 in a student halls once though.
there are no new threads left to make
till i was three i think we were in number 57, then 15 years in a house with a name, then room 417 in halls, then 367, then 212b, then 27, now 21
I totally win. I lived here from 1981-1982:
In between I've lived at 86, 18 and 35. Fascinating stuff.
End of thread.
It's Billy Bob from 33,298 here! How's life treatin' ya?
where did you live? I'm assuming somewhere with mega suburbs?
There were barely any houses on the road, I assume the numbering came from plot allocation or something. Pretty weird.
i guess if the whole area had been urbanised you would've been on the 332nd block from whatever the central point was :D
(i've often wondered if they kept that up way out in the sticks!)
and it seems that yes, house number doesn't realte to the number of properties on the road. you would see 2,000 and then drive down a road without seeing anything for miles and suddenly happen upon 14,000
