I’ve often seen the phone numbers in tv shows and in the movies that used the 555 exchange and thought why don’t they use a more real looking number. I figured there might be a few jerks out there that would think it would be funny to call numbers they saw appear there but those would be few. I was wrong. Bruce Almighty, the film, displays a phone number for God on Jim Carrey‘s character’s pager that doesn’t use the commonly used 555 extension and all hell breaks loose. Things like this by fellow US citizens really cause me to doubt the long term viability of our country.
