 Here's a site for you:

47 is the quintessential random number.

Many have noticed. Many have wondered: why?
Many more have wondered: so what?

The 47 society is dedicated to exploring the phenomenon that is 47.

Take your time, explore the mystery of 47

 What is 47?

In short, 47 appears to be the quintessential random number of the universe. In other words, when a number appears randomly, more often than not, that number is 47. In other other words, if you asked people to pick a number at random, more often than not, that number would be 47. Of course, if 47 shows up more than any other number then it isn't truly random, but using the word random makes the whole phenomenon easier to describe.

    I've always wondered about the year 1947.

    Consider, in 1947:

    Roswell

    Bermuda Triangle - planes are lost, then the search planes disappear

    The term' flying saucer' coined when a reporter spots a UFO in Washington state 

    The United States Army Air Corps becomes the U S Air Force 

    The charter that formed the nation of Israel - officially Israel became a nation 5 14, 1948 - but the charter was formed and signed in 1947
