Has 44444 a special meaning in China? If so enlighten us dummy western people.
Would it be the same like 666 ormore like repeated 7 over here?
(666 is the number of the devil and 7 is a number considered to stand for luck).

In Japan 4 is a bad number. Phonetically it is very similar to 'death'.

rtvfan,

Fairly standard pictures of the car except, the reflections are distracting.

I understand use of a polarizing filter will decrease some of the harsh reflections.

Mathilde uP: "44444" has no special meaning in China,I just think the brand of the car is special and interesting.



Lauren:You are right,it is same in Korea.

selvin:Yes,you are right.

Default Death

The number 4 is also considered very inauspicious indeed in Hong Kong. The Cantonese word for 4 - sei - sounds very similar to the Cantonese word for death.
