I've been on here for years, and I have yet to decipher why this number is used. It seems to be used when people want to make replies somewhat akin to "Derp".

I know I'm going to get a panoply of non-serious replies, probably some with 87 in them, but in for the one or two serious replies.

Multiply 87 times itself.

Add up all the digits of that number.

Now multiply that number by 87.

Add up all the digits again.

Weird, huh?

neo-nazi's use 88 as their code for HH (Heil Hitler), since H is the 8th letter in alphabet.
88 is banned here, so people find it edgy to use 87.



It's actually kind of disgusting.



Why not use some other cool codes like P-A (Pro-Abortion) 16-1, to double down on the stupidity?



 
If the site banned sucking dick, there would be some who would bitch about that, and try to get some on the sly.


 



If markm really started it. I actually don't remember that.  I doubt that's why it stuck.  Also, where did he come up with it?

I think it has something to do with the Bureau of Land Management.

Or maybe the Black Lives Matter movement.  I'm not sure which.  I frequently get them confused.  Pretty sure they are both bad though.

So an 87 response could be followed up by an FU? Only in GD.

I think a lot of people were just coming up with that number as "the first random number that popped into their head," and it became an ARFCOM meme.

I don't think it was just MarkM that started it.
