5, 15, 25, 35, 45, 55, 65, 75, 85, 95, end.

I type weird entries on my phone.

And I am dying for some inspiration right now – but all my brain is offering me is literally a headache.

But! I am still wondering: Do numbers like 15, 25, 35 etc have a meaning in countries, that are not using the metric system? See, especially with birthdays, you have the one when you grow out of age (18) that's "big", the next one is your 20th, and the next one equal to that would be your 30th – but we also tend to celebrate birthdays/anniversaries with a 5 in it big time. Is that because of the metric system or is that common in other cultures, too?

I cannot recall any mention in pop culture, which addresses this in some way, so my best guess was that it doesn't matter, at least not in the States…?

Any opinions? This is driving me crazy.

… well, yes, I have some spare time for a change. What gave it away?
