  3. It might be IN Arabic, but doesn't mean that it's a different digit! So this post is pretty funny...unless he meant, "how do you say a number in Arabic?"

  4. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9

    This made me think of how terrible life would be if we had to do math with Roman numerals, everyone would be screwed.
