    Nice! A great (wordless?) story – hopefully not about anyone you know. ;)

    What does the 180/120 mean?

  3. 2/28/2009Art says:

    @ Isabel : Blood pressure maybe?

    180/120 says sportbike tyre sizes to me.

    Marilyn Monroe?

    180/120 could be blood pressure. It’s the systolic / diastolic. Sounds like cardiac arrest.

    I think it’s body measurements, weight fluctuation and then disaster.

    It’s definitely blood pressure. Normal blood pressure is 120 / 80 or lower.

    “180 / 120″ means you’re having a catastrophic heart attack…hence the “911.”

    38-24-36 -> beautiful woman’s measurements
    180/120 -> blood pressure (cardiac arrest)
    911 -> obvious

    Drop dead gorgeous. Fantastic. I love the cryptic-ness-ism (?)

    Brilliant! Had to think hard for a moment there…lol

    My interpretation: Incredible measurements for a woman = extremely high blood pressure = a dire need for medical assistance

    lol… this story’s about Marilyn Monroe… 38-24-36= her dress size.. 180/120 was her blood pressure… she died…

    Brilliant story. The ambiguousness has an interesting effect because although the interpretation that the first three numbers are a dress size makes sense, I interpreted these numbers to be a combination for a lock, in which case this story would be describing a robbery (the unlocking of a lock, a high BP from nervousness, and cops being called in response).

    Either way, it’s brilliant.

    It sounds like s psychotic killer, or just an old man watching porn.
