The number 69,105 was first used in the mainframe game of Zork:

>count leaves
There are 69,105 leaves here.

There is amusing on several levels:

  • It is absurd that the adventurer would be able to count so many leaves with such precision, especially in the minute or so time that a normal turn supposedly takes.
  • 69 is sexual slang for mutual oral sex.
  • Decimal 69 is equal to octal 105, and hexadecimal 69 is equal to decimal 105.
