    ok first of all i didn't come up with this, i read it somewhere else, but someone in a different thread once wrote that maybe it had to do with the fact that a normal human has 46 chromosomes and maybe if they had a 47th one, it would have to do with having everlasting life, or something like that.

    hmm i think either randomly picked, and what pasta suggested ties in with rambaldi really well, i really have no clue where it came from...something to ponder over the long summer!

    I never thought of it before. I think it may have just been something the creaters did unconciously.

    :o Are you serious? That's so cool! I agree with Crazy spinster that it ties in very nicely with Rambaldi--He was obsessed with eternal life. Cool info! (y)

    not to be picky or anything, but a Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court was written by Mark Twain...aka Samuel Clemens...the same guy who wrote tom sawyer/huck finn NOT Oliver Twist/A Christmas Carol

    I think some groups of people believe 47 is the perfect random number...but I don't know why they chose that number.


    oh...if only we could get JJ on this site to answer all of our questions correctly!!!

    47 has been the most popular rndom number throughout history. In some cases it wasn't random, like the fact that Jesus was believed to have performed 47 miricals and that people with mental and physical abnormalities, such as Multipule Sclirosis have a 47th chromosome and that it believed to be one of the major causes for the disease, however no one can prove that. But the fact that you are more likely to look at a clock when it is 47 minutes past the hour is just coincidence, what isn't is the fact that the Great Pyramid at Giza, one of the greatest unsolved mysteries, is 147 metres tall.
