It reminds me of an interview I once watched with an Obsessive Compulsive woman who thought the number four had magical significance. Her rationale was based on the fact that if you add up the letters in any number, then add up the letters in the subsequent number, etc. etc. you eventually get to four and can't go any farther.
eg: Eighteen (8 letters), Eight (5 letters), Five(4 letters), Four (4), Four, Four
A normal person would realize that this happens because the number four is written with 4 letters. Someone like her, however, would look for special significance in roadsigns and make a website detailing it.
