82 Obsession

Okay.. so after seeing Magnolia in the theatre, and then getting obsessed with it and then getting obsessed with finding all of the 82s, it kindof was obvious to a lot of my friends how 82 consumed my lonely pathetic life..

Now, I continually see 82 in lots of places, and my friends have even joined in in noticing it.

Now is it because im so fixated on the stupid number that I see it everywhere? or what is it?  Does anyone else notice 82 in their daily lives?

Also.. this is probably best explained by Sol Robeson from Pi:

"Hold on. You have to slow down. You're losing it. You have to take a breath. Listen to yourself. You're connecting a computer bug I had with a computer bug you might have had and some religious hogwash. You want to find the number 216 in the world, you will be able to find it everywhere. 216 steps from a mere street corner to your front door. 216 seconds you spend riding on the elevator. When your mind becomes obsessed with anything, you will filter everything else out and find that thing everywhere."
"We're all one thing, Lieutenant. That's what I've come to realize. Like cells in a body. 'Cept we can't see the body. The way fish can't see the ocean. And so we envy each other. Hurt each other. Hate each other. How silly is that? A heart cell hating a lung cell"

Yes, that is true.  You can do that with anything.  I first noticed it when I was a child (not 82, but other stuff) and it really can weird you out, but try to make it fun instead

Why doesn't someone lock this thread?  The old one is really great.  All kinds of screen grabs...
