In the UK we have 147, although to be fair only for the highest maximum break in snooker.

And then there's 180. That's what you shout when you get three consecutive darts in the triple-20 on a darts board.
Mostly heard in January on the BBC, during the Darts World Championship.

Though I'm pretty sure 911 works too.

Also 118 - number... number. You know, for numbers... And stuff.

We've got 110 for Police, and 112 for Ambulance and/or Fire. (Though either one will direct you to the correct service, of course. )

Ah, still no news. Though I am pretty sure which studio I want to visit now. My sister had a tattoo last year, and I really liked their work. So yeah, likely there.

Well, at least you're not rushing into anything (which is good because personally I don't like tattoos...)

We used to have 10022 separately for police, but it was united with 112 a couple years back.

So, we won on the longest emergency line number. Not anymore though.

I may be looking for people to offer critique on music what I be making.
Possibly not, though.

In England, the number for all emergency services is simple and catchy and the process of contacting them is simple.

What you want and what you won't are two different things.
