Internet slang.

I was reading Le Monde online today, and I noticed in a sidebar for comments that a reader had been writing, "blah blah blah 2 blah blah blah 2" - and at first, I kept reading this '2' as I would an English '2,' i.e. as 'to'...but this was obviously wrong, so I stopped, sounded out "deux" in my head, and realized: 2 = de.

I know it's not rocket science but I felt a little proud of myself.
