Just spotted someone pointing out that todays’ the 11th of the 11th 2011. So a quick webcrawl revealed the following:
11.11.11 is special because there is no other date that consists of all the same number. The day comes around once every 100 years, meaning today is the only time many people will be alive to experience the unique date.
Some websites are predicting the date 11.11.11 marks the end of the world because the comet Elenin, Earth, Venus and Mercury are expected to align. Sigh, the world would end just about every day if we listened to these muppets. My best was reading a blurb from some nutters that said today was a cosmic transport portal date – so there we go, you wanna head out into the galaxies, best you grab your ride today then! Wonder what these ou’s smoke…..
The numerology ou’s are having a field day too, check this out:
(2 digits) 11 x 11 = 121
(6 digits) 111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
(9 digits) 111111111 x 111111111 = 12345678987654321
11.11.11 marks the 93rd anniversary of Armistice Day. Armistice Day was the last day of WWI. It is observed with one minute of silence at 11am.
Fighting when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.
For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”
The number 11.11.11 is a classic example of apophenia, the human urge to see patterns in essentially random events.
So there we have it, your dose of randomness for the day…
