Here's another example, although it has nothing to do with mathematics:
For my first trip to England, in May, I got the DK Eyewitness Guide to London for my iPad.
Their guide breaks London down into various regions, one of which is Whitehall and Westminster. Selecting "Places of Interest" for that region, we find 20 numbered places. Here's a portion of the list:
9 Churchill Museum and Cabinet War Rooms 10 Downing Street 11 Banqueting House
Is it mere coincidence that Downing Street is the tenth place listed?
