I DECREE: There is not a license plate that is not fun to say.
As A kid, I spent a lot of time travelling in cars, mainly pursuing my ticket out of the 'Borough West' Projects by way of a professional tennis career.
Looking for ways to entertain myself I discovered this fact about number plates - 3 letter combinations on license plates are just fun to say. If they are some weird combination of letters, such as, FTB or GTL, that is fun. If the arrangement makes a word, then you have found a little number plate gem.
Some examples I can see on my street: QZI, UTD, VTM, HAL. See! Its Fun.
It's so much fun, that if I was to create a new language I would base it upon this idea. Words cannot consist of more than three letters.
What’s that ma'am, sorry, you are wondering if limiting word length to 3 would NOT result in enough words to express all the complexities of human interaction?
Well lets see. There are 26 letters in the alphabet. That is 26 possible single letter words. 676 possible two-letter words and 17576 three-letter possibilities (derived from the Permutation with repetition rule nr , where n is the number of objects to choose from, n = 26 letters in the alphabet, and r is the number of positions, either 1, 2 or 3).
That gives a total of 17576+676+26 = 18,278. Lets get rid of 25% of those because they will be crap and not worth using and we are let with 13,709. That seems like plenty of words to me.
Sorry Sir, can you speak up? How are we going to communicate fluently with each other given that we will all be beside ourselves, quietly giggling at the hilarious sounds that are coming from our mouths?
This is a possibility I agree. I think, if anything, laughter helps and it is a chance I am willing to take.
You think I am a retard sir and I have wasted your time, my time and precious space on the internets with this drivel? Fair call.
