Ever notice how in movies, when the characters give someone their numbers, the beginning of the phone numbers always start with 555? I mean can the writers come up with ANY other number combinations? I can come up with a few off the top of my head right now: 785, 937, 864, 232. See?

I did that fast cuz I used my number pad on my keyboard.

Here are some more: 852, 742, 242, 987.

They use 555 because it doesn't exist in real life. People used to take the numbers and make crank calls. Can you imagine getting 5000 calls a day just because Tom Cruise dialed your number randomly in a movie? I'd be so pissed!

Yeah, and what kind of moron goes, "Hey, if I call that number, then I'll reach that cute blonde too!" Oh that's right, probably millions...ha ha.

And I wonder how many people bought lotto tickets to the numbers Hurley did on lost!
