Now, I have no fucking clue what they were concerned about. Were our souls in peril? If so, why? Was Satan going to get to listen in on our calls? Does this prove the phone company is lead by Satan worshipers? If the rapture started, would our phone number be confused with us actually bearing the mark of the beast? Were their jimmies rustled?

So many people have an adverse reaction to the number, and even if they understand that it's a random assignment, they'll still get upset. I just honestly don't know what they're upset about?

Stupidity is what governments do best.

The greatest stupid/tragedy to date: I believe--the war with Iraq.

It's obviously to avoid confusion and false reads whenever SSNs are used in bar codes.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Unbelievable. It never ends. Facepalm

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.
