I see a lot of people on Xbox Live with 187 after their names. I understand it when people use 69 and 420...but what does 187 mean?

187 is, of course, the exact number of ulcer-inducing moments in Phantom Menace.

It's the LAPD police code for Murder to be exact, many other agencies use 10 codes or call it a 31 (Homicide).

Hah. Isn't it referencing how Grateful Dead concerts started at 4:30, so people started smoking (weed) at 4:20?

187 = police code for homicide

420

Once apon a time in the 60s, there was a group of highschool friends who called themselves The *something* (might have been mysterious) Waldos. They would always meet after school at 4:20 to smoke weed. So, whenever they were in school and they wanted to talk about it, they would use 420 as a code word for it.

Nope. If the cops were searching your house for drugs and didn't find anything, one of the cops would tell the others that the house was "Code 4". It means that everything is normal.

It also got a big boost as part of the title of a Samuel Jackson movie that ran perpetually on cable and reached a lot of people who'd never listen to rap any longer than it takes to change the channel.

Another favorite is 5150. Means the individual is friggin' berserk. Bring the net, tranqs, and tasers.

Code 4- No further assitance required. Police codes vary from state to state though, so YMMV.

420 is actually a reference to April 20th the day the Columbine school tragedy happened. 420 actually relates to the date of the Columbine disaster (April 20, 1999.) April 20=4/20 so people figured 4/20 (April 20th) of every year to smoke weed to remember what happened and be greatful that there were survivors. Today alot of its referencing has been lost (which is said Columbine only happened 6 years ago) and like the person said at the top of this thread(1swtdeception) "isn't it national smoke weed day?" it is, but it has a story behind it. I hope this helps.

Also another little fact (nothing to do with the true meaning of 420) but some say it is because hitler was born on April 20th, 1889 but this just went into the minds of the 2 kid sthat commited Columbine, they looked up to hitler, so they did it in his "memorial" sick, but it happened. But my first post is actually the true meaning.

I'm sorry, but WHAT? WRONG!!!!

I've heard of 420 since the early 90's. It references a time of day.

Here's my take on it: surfers in California would aloways get up at 4:20 am and smoke before they went out to catch the huge morning waves.

420 means what it wants to for different people, but the analogy is always the same: 4:20=time to smoke weed.
