"At a time like this, scorching irony, not convincing argument, is needed. O! had I the ability, and could I reach the nation's ear, I would, to-day, pour out a fiery stream of biting ridicule, blasting reproach, withering sarcasm, and stern rebuke. For it is not light that is needed, but fire; it is not the gentle shower, but thunder. We need the storm, the whirlwind, and the earthquake."
- Frederick Douglass, 1952 USA Independence Day address

Once upon a time, there was a man. This man was like any other man, save for one thing. He owned a black shark, and he kept it in a white pool. I know what you're thinking; why does he have a black shark in his white pool. Well, the man had a rule that he would never tell anyone, and that no one was supposed to ask him about it. He told everyone he became close with, "don't ask me about my black shark in my white pool."
@bignimbus I dreamed about this moment but never thought it would come true.
A friend and I are trying to come up with a unified theory of phone number aesthetics, here are the criteria so far:
* Patterns found in the digits
* Cadence when saying the number out loud
* Symmetry of the number when written out
Letter-number mappings - any words or sequences in there?
* Physical layout on a touch-tone phone - is it pleasant to dial?
