Whoa, that 3414 return address caught my attention! Check it out:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mnemonic_major_system
Numeral , Associated Consonants, Mnemonic
0 s, z, soft c - "z" is the first letter of zero. The other letters have a similar sound.
1 d, t - d & t have one downstroke and sound similar (some variant systems include "th")
2 n - n has two downstrokes
3 m - M has three downstrokes and looks like a "3" on its side
4 r - last letter of four, also 4 and R are almost mirror images of each other
5 l - L is the Roman Numeral for 50
6 j, sh, soft "ch", dg, zh, soft "g" - a script j has a lower loop / g is almost a 6 flipped over
7 k, hard c, hard g, hard "ch", q, qu - capital K "contains" two sevens
8 f, v - script f resembles a figure-8. V sounds similar. (some variant systems include th)
9 b, p - p is a mirror-image 9. b sounds similar and resembles a 9 rolled around
Unassigned Vowel sounds, w,h,y These can be used anywhere without changing a word's number value
This mnemonic system has been around a long time, and is useful for remembering strings of random digits. Anything from phone numbers to hundreds of digits of PI. The number 3414 could be matched to lots of words or phrases, but one in particular certainly stands out.
Anyone think that the 34144
was familiar with this system and added his own bit of twisted word-play?
