I'll get it started:

NE1469

I1ntMuf

4-Q

Pha-Q

Czech-M8

Btt-fcker (for real ... although taken away a few years back ... saw it on the news)

And, HONESTLY ... on my first car (1985 Mustang GT) the state provided license plate was LAY-012 ... When folks would ask, I always said it outdated! ;)

Saw one in Toronto a few years back that had me mystified for a while - a semi-sleazy young guy driving a big ol' Chevvy with plush interior, smoked rear glass, little pillows on the rear seat back, etc., and had a plate that read, "WOMEN". After a few minutes it struck me that if you read the whole plate, it read, "Ontario women, yours to discover".

In a parking lot in Halifax, two identical Mercedes parked side-by-side; one plate read "HERS", the other "MINE".

On a Lamboughini Countach in Ottawa; "2FST4U"

I saw one here in N.J. once that read 3COPMOM. Do you think she gets pulled over for speeding too often?

The Ohio Division of Motor Vehicles has a committee of censors that review every special license plate. If they can't figure it out or you can't, logically, explain it you don't get it.

OK, you got me going. Now sit back and hear my story...;)
As many of you know I compete in K9 Performance Events: Agility, Obedience, Earthdog, Tracking, etc with my Norfolk Terriers. Ken has accused me of "going to the dogs" I'm so addicted. :D In competing we try for a qualifing score known as a "Q". So I decided to get me a Vanity Plate that was related to my addiction.

No problem when I got it, but about a month after I renewed the plate (a year later) I got a very strange note from the State of NH MV. :( I had to IMMEDIATELY take the plates off my car and return them to my town office. They were being recalled. Now I called the State of NH MV to ask why.:confused: It took them a 1/2 hour of beating around the bush to explain why they were being recalled after I had had them a year plus.:o I was too naive to understand.

Next step was I called my town office to explain the situation and said I was coming in to replace the plates. The town clerk was also confused. It took me a bit to explain when I got there why the State considered my plates pornographic (the States word for them). We all had a good laugh and changed the plates. :o

Now I did change them to Q+Q, but Ken and I got questioned even on them when we came back into the States from Toronto at Christmas!:eek: They wanted to know what those letters meant!

So I changed them again - my plates now read:"G-Day"

Oh the original Plates that started this?:rolleyes:
GO4QS (Meant to read Go for Qs)

I knew a woman in college who drove a bright red Honda Prelude with Kansas plates TOTO and a bumper sticker that said "Auntie Em, I hate you. I hate Kansas. Leaving. Taking the dog. - Dorothy"

And the first person to figure THAT out AND explain it... will get the genuine, authentic replica kewpie doll!

Bible is full of stuff that isn't staid or stuffy!

Forgot the title, but I once read a book that "interpreted" SONG OF SOLOMON.

Had I only known this stuff when I was a teen!:eek:

Katey (a reluctant probabilist)

Bayesian as opposed to Frequentist... the adversarial poles of modern statistics. I wanted something to remind me of my struggles to learn, and was sufficiently obscure that only others who had suffered through similar struggles were likely to get it.:D

It also describes much of my approach to life. A frequentist would say: we need a whole pot full of data before we can make any useful inferences about this problem.

A Bayesian would say: I can't know a'priori everything about this new problem. But I can make some pretty good guesses based on my similar experiences, enough to get started, and add to my knowledge as I go.
