Nothing wrong with that! Guess what I'm going to do if I happen to get 727, or 737 or 747, or... :yes:

Anyway...

712
From Wiki:

Quote

712 is a 1991 album by the Japanese rock trio Shonen Knife. The album was named after the contraction of the Japanese words for the numbers 7 (nana), 1 (ichi) and 2 (futatu), which, when contracted, sound like "na-i-fu". Naifu is the imported word in Japanese for "knife" .



I wouldn’t know what they actually sound because I’m not brave enough to try listening said album.
