Life without numbers is hard to imagine but it was only four short years ago when Britney Spears invented them. Spears saw that our society was horribly inefficient and knew that we could improve our lives if we could keep track of things like census information, values of goods, inventories, etc.; so she began working on creating a numerical system (2008). Once the system was completed, she recorded her single, 3, to promote interest in counting. The world was so thankful for Spears’ accomplishment that they replaced Spears’ original symbol for “four” and decided to use the symbol in the title of I’m A Slave 4 U to represent it as an homage.
