# was originally used in mapmaking, representing a village surrounded by eight fields, so it was named the octothorpe. – BRI Trina ... See MoreSee Less

Neil KomorowskiMy 13 year old nephew saw the title of the song "Funk #49" and called it "Funk Hashtag 49".3   ·  2 days ago

Eric WolfeThen it was discovered those 8 fields were growing cannabis, and it was used to denote where medieval cartographers could find a good, cheap high. Due to the great distances involved in travel at that time, it only made sense to buy by the pound, which is how the octothorpe became known as the "pound sign." Later, as more people bought by the ounce, the name was again changed to "hashtag."2   ·  2 days ago

Tracy Lee CarneAlso used to be a symbol meaning "number" as in #1, then it was "pound" for awhile, though I don't know why. And the international gaming symbol for tic-tac-toe ;) Has BRI ever done an article about symbols that have changed meaning over the years?3   ·  2 days ago

I’ve learned a lot in my time here at the Bathroom Reader, but perhaps the most valuable is this little tidbit, the first stall in a public bathroom is typically the cleanest. Most people skip it in search of privacy. – BRI Trina ... See MoreSee Less
