BAD0B0B0 Address: Childhood Memories

The system crashes at it (Google search shows 164,000 hits). Notice the second part “b0b0″ after “bad”. For my eyes (I wear glasses) it is “bobo” – that was my mother telling me when I was a child and I was about to touch a hot or sharp object.

Bad! Bo-bo!

Was the address value designed intentionally or it is just a coincidence?
