Integers notable for their cultural meanings

Today’s XKCD led me to look at the Wikipedia article ‘List of numbers‘ out of curiosity.

I was surprised to see listed among the ‘notable integers’ were a few telephone numbers, such as 999 and 911. I guess these were included on the basis of their “cultural meanings”, although they are not integers. (They have since been removed from the article.)

But I was surprised that the most culturally significant telephone number of the past decade — that’s right, 118 — was left out. So I decided to fix that.

Notable integers, including 118

(Don’t worry, I only did this in Firebug, not on Wikipedia itself.)
