    when i was in middle school, i had this teacher who would say this weird saying. when you asked him to go to the bathroom, he would say 'be back in a minute 380'. ask him how tall the desk is, its a foot 380. how much is the book, its a dollar 380. you get the point by now. does anyone know what he was talking about? my dad says that his father used to say the same thing occasionally, but he used 580 instead, and a lot less frequently. the teacher was just some loser who thought he was funny, but i still dont know if this means anything at all, it must have come from somewhere if my grand pops used to say some derivation of it, anyone know?

    I don't what ANY of you are talking about (which is the whole point of using cryptic anagrams in the first place); but I was 25 before I knew what 69 represented. [​IMG]

    380.... I don't know but with the information on that Snopes link that Greg_Y provided, perhaps this is just a play on 420. if you consider 3 hours 80 minutes, it works out to be the same as 4 hours 20 minutes or 420..

    Maybe it's just a spinoff of 420, like if the teachers/cops/authority got word of what "420" means, maybe 380 was a way to remain obscure..

    Just a guess!

    I have another guess too, much like "69" has a graphical resemblemce, so does the letters '3' '8' and '0' if you look at it the right way...

    Greg, thanks for the link to 420, that was informative. [​IMG]

    You guys are a hoot, I was 25 at one time, but that was many moons ago. Now I'm 51.
