    I remember seeing a Chicago city vehicle sticker with the word 'cipher' under any '0's in its serial number.

    Also:

    -'oh' (as in saying the letter 'O').

    76 reviewed, considered and alphabetized terms for nothing - as a first post - in response to a long defunct thread. That is serious slacking, worthy of Cyburbia in its finest traditions.

    We don't give gold stars here. We give these.
