    okay, so i'm a big nerd who finds patterns really interesting.

    i just found out today that canadian postal codes range alphabetically from east to west.

    i.e.: quebec has H for montreal, and then western quebec is J... then ottawa/kingston is K, becoming M in toronto, N in london...Calgary is T...BC is V

    isn't that cool? i love seeing patterns in commonplace things.

    i also found out today that the first number of your Social Insurance Number is based on the province in which you obtained your SIN card.

    so anyone know of any other interesting patterns?

    entertain me. work is boring today.

    the firts letter in your drivers licence starts with the fist letter of your last name, also ends with your birthdate...

    The Zip code in the states works about the same way as our postal code I think. East coast starts with 1XXXX, West coast starts with 9XXXX.

    But the postal code for Santa at the north pole is H0H 0H0. Go figure. [​IMG]

    There are patterns in the number on your driver's licence.

    The last five digits are your birthdate, the others represent something too but I forget what.

    you should check out james gleick's "chaos: making a new science". it discusses 'chaos theory', and has a great deal to do with patterns. it thoroughly bent my brain. [​IMG]
