           --- The Mind is a terrible wasted thing! ---

Looking for a new e-addiction? Here’s one that you’re going to love to hate!

The Mind / Number Stomp

You know how you get a song or an advertising jingle stuck in your head and then you end up singing it over and over again until it makes you want to scream? Well this is even better than that.

Mind Number Stomp

The Mind/Number Stomp is all about song titles or common phrases that automatically pop into our heads when we see or hear certain numbers. You know, like...

16 - Candles
18 - Wheeler
76 - Trombones in the big parade
99 - Bottles of beer on the wall

There's got to be thousands of these kicking around in our collective heads, and I'm hoping that you'll donate a few of your brain cells to help me grow the list that's already been started.

It's quick, easy, and oh-so addictive. So give it a shot and see how many you can add.

Foot Note
     Year dates have been left out of the main list to reduce duplications. These will be included in a supplemental list.
Ordinal numbers (1st, 3rd, 4th) are treated here in the same way as Cardinal numbers, since they trigger a very similar memory response for many people.
Grammatical articles (A, An, The) are used here somewhat at whim, but play little or no part in the actual memory response of the Mind/Number Stomp.
