    Fla., A Florida woman with a phone number made famous by pop band Tommy Tutone said she obtained the number on purpose and receives hundreds of calls each week. Carrie Routt of Lynn Haven said she dialed 867-5309, the phone number belonging to the eponymous girl in the Tommy Tutone song "Jenny," for fun 12 years ago and she discovered the number was available, WMBB-TV, Panama City, Fla., reported Tuesday. "Just like everybody else we wanted to know what would happen if you called that number," Routt said. She said she called the phone company and concocted a story to...

    Talk about an unlucky draw. An Orlando, Fla., man says his life has been turned upside down since May 7, when T-Mobile reportedly assigned him the cellphone number formerly used by accused Florida murderer George Zimmerman. It's the same mobile number Zimmerman gave police dispatchers during the notorious 911 call moments before he shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin three months ago. The 911 call (with Zimmerman heard spelling out the number) has since been widely circulated by the media and on the Internet. The Orlando Sentinel reports that Junior Alexander Guy, the man who inherited Zimmerman's old number, immediately...

    You don't even have to get it from the bathroom stall. Remember that At&T or Sprint commercial from the late 1990s, when a woman (possibly by the name of Jenny) gushes about having the famous telephone number 867-5309? She fell in love with the digits after hearing Tommy Tutone's famous song "8675309 (Jenny)" about a man in love with a woman whose number he found in a bathroom stall.That phone number just doesn't stop getting popular. In the (201) area code area of New Jersey, a DJ who specifically requested that telephone number is now auctioning it off on eBay...

  • Is Bin Laden Looking to 72.

    Newsmax Insider Report (email) | September 9, 2007 | Newsmax
    Is there any method to bin Laden’s madness? After years of not being seen in public, he is apparently surfacing on the eve of the 6th anniversary of his Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. Intelligence agencies have stated that Islamic terrorists like to mark anniversaries with attacks. As religious fundamentalists, they may even be motivated by Islam’s interest in numbers or numerology. While the number 6 has little religious significance for Islamics, this Sept. 11 will mark an important number: 72. That’s 72 months since the 9/11 strikes of 2001. Could there be significance in that number? We did some research...

    Jenny, they've got your number in a legal battle ASSOCIATED PRESS May 20, 2007 LINCOLN, R.I. – One-hit wonder Tommy Tutone made the phone number 867-5309 famous in the band's 1982 hit single, which uses the digits over and over in its catchy refrain. Now, a Rhode Island company and a national firm are battling over the right to use the number, which doesn't reach the “Jenny” that Tutone sings about but could find callers a decent plumber. Two years ago, Gem Plumbing & Heating of Lincoln, R.I., trademarked the phone number from the song, which reached No. 4 on...

    We have been receiving numerous calls from (866) 325-2373 every day. When we answer, the caller hangs up. When we call back, the call is answered by an automated attendant. The company is not identified, all the operators are busy, and you have to leave a message. We have left a message several times telling them to take us off their call list. Our number is on the National No Call List and has been since the first day we could register. We have filed a complaint on the No Call website. Are other FReepers receiving these calls? I have...

    Me | Today | Dan Pride
    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    I recently received a reply to a post that stated: "This should be beneath a "freeper". Sad." So I asked.. what is it that makes a FReeper? My reply (and I will admit was tasteless) was also questioning. It stirred controversy and was removed? Why Moderators? Can you not tell me? Did it not meet with your "FReeper" mentality? According to all posted guidelines it should be listed but no, you chose to delete it. Yes.. I'm the first one IBTZ, I'm sure you'll nick me for speaking up..

    SHE DIDN'T TALK like the donkey in "Shrek," nor did she arrive bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. But the family of Sidekick, the celebrity miniature donkey who spent more than six months on the lam, was glad to have her back nonetheless. "She's a great Christmas present," said Glenna Tompkins, a MediCorp Health System analyst who lives in Louisa County. In May, Tompkins transferred the 20-month-old jenny, or female donkey, from Orange to her parents' 10-acre farm near the Spotsylvania Court House battlefield. Within hours, Sidekick had escaped through a hole where a tree had fallen on the...
  • Communism and human nature (Bolshie Mod sez, Arise ye kittens of the earth!)

    04/05/2005 10:50:57 AM PDT · by Sammy sam · 153 replies · 8,234+ views
    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...
