    I'd imagine that Slovenia ranks with the Netherlands and Germany, then, cause they say their numbers that way, as well. I'm used to it cause I speak German, but it can still be really confusing when I hear the "wrong number" first.

    I heard Nick say zebra in an episode of CSI when calling in a code for a death. Maybe it's zebra for z.

    ROFL! Either I remembered it wrong or they said it wrong on the show! It was in the beginning of the episodes called "Unleashed." XD
    I said, "Hi, Greg. I'm the creepy girl." He chuckled, then wanted a handshake and I gave it. I wanted a hug and he gave it. One of his sons was there, too. Cute. Then Pete got him to autograph my sign for me because I was too polite to ask myself since he was on his way to eat. Pete also took this of photo of him holding it. - 8/2/2014.
