    It's lucky to Oriental cultures, it's just those @ss Neo-Nazis that have to go and "reinvent" different terms, etc. to go along with their backwards beliefs.

    haha my dad picked the number 88 within his car plate. It's good luck/hope for fortune kinda thing in Chinese.

    Oh not to mention the numbers in my car's plate (see sig) ;)
