    SI man says ‘Hitler code’ hidden in proposed suicide hotline number



    A call for help may become a punch in the gut.

    A Federal Communications Commission proposal to replace its 10-digit national suicide prevention hotline number with the three-digit 988 hits too close to home for a Staten Island activist, who noted the numbers 88 are significant in neo-Nazi and white supremacy movements.

    The letter H is the eighth letter of the alphabet, and to neo-Nazis, the numbers 88 together stand for “Heil Hitler.”

    “It’s not just a number,” said Charles Greinsky, a 68-year-old Jewish war veteran, who recalls when hatemongers spray painted the digits on his temple in 2008.

    Greinsky is lobbying Rep. Max Rose and Sen. Charles Schumer to come up with a different three-digit combo.

    “You’d have Holocaust survivors and children of Holocaust survivors that are in need of mental health services dialing a number that causes extreme stress and makes people relive some of the worst experiences the world has ever seen,” he said

    I wore 88 in football until I was in the 7th grade they made me switch to 24 since I was not playing defensive tackle anymore it was probably three years later before I even noticed most other receivers did not wear numbers in the 20's . I bet 24 had some evil , secret hidden meaning and that is why they gave it to me . I usually wore 9 or 13 in soccer , I always offered to take 13 if that is all that was left and nobody wanted it . I think I probably scored about the same amount of goals with ea number though .

    Asians love the number 8. At least in Cantonese, "baht" sound a lot like "faht" which means luck. You'll see a lot of asian restaurants named "... 888".

    They better not change it to 198, because the 19th letter is S and the 8th is H, so that'd be Sieg Heil.

    It might also be in their best interest to avoid any phone number that has 420 in it since thats Hitlers birthday.

    In Christian numerology, the number 888 represents Jesus, or sometimes more specifically Christ the Redeemer. This representation may be justified either through gematria, by counting the letter values of the Greek transliteration of Jesus' name,[11] or as an opposing value to 666, the number of the beast.[12]
    In Chinese numerology, 888 has a different meaning, triple fortune, a strengthening of the meaning of the digit 8.[13] For this reason, addresses and phone numbers containing the digit sequence 888 are considered particularly lucky, and may command a premium because of it.[14]
