    I happened to look at my computer clock and was so surprised!
    Good thing while practicing to catch lightning bolts in UO made me quick at taking screen shots .. because had I hesitated this would never have been caught:

    Actually the most insanely cool time yesterday was at 11:02:11am because that makes 11:02:11 11/11/2011 Which if you look at it in just numbers is 11021111112011 and if you split that it's 1102111 1112011 and mirrored. Which is rather fascinating... and fun. Though you suppose folk in 1111 thought it to be ominous or something at 1111 on 11/11/1111?

    I do enjoy numbers and am always fascinated by birthdays that have interesting number sequences. Such as my son born 02/06/86. As two and six are eight... and all the numbers there are divisible by 2's. Though I often thought the 19 didn't fit in my son did remind me that 9 minus the 1 is eight...

    Or my daughter born 9/11/91. Having a fascinating combination of 9's and 1's..... even with the 1991.... though she's right about now having the "Worst birthday EVER!".... I do have to remind her that one of my Uncles had the "misfortune" of sharing his Birthday with the day that Kennedy was shot... No one forgets those things.

    Just fun thoughts with numbers though.

    *Suddenly get the mental image of MalagAste being along the lines of Jim Carrey in The Number 23 with numbers all over the wall*

    9/11 an event that will fade like 7 DEC. Just takes longer now days with the media vultures. Having your B-Day on or near X-mas is a shot to the goodies count. Or on/near the 4th July for US babies. You know your birthday party starts right before the sun goes down. Holidays rarely fade into history that have a commercial value. Unlike MLK or a Veteran's Day once power nations can stop policing the world.

    Mine, Terry's and our two sons' birthdays all fall at 3 week intervals, plus or minus one day. This year the boys' birthdays are on Wednesday, Terry's and mine on Thursday. Eldest son first, 3 weeks and 1 day later Terry's. 3 weeks exactly to mine and finally 3 weeks minus one day to our younger son's

    Yes and the whole world revolves around the the US. And faster for those that have never lived anyplace else but here. The 12 year old kid in Honduras collecting firewood to cook the evening meal cares their birthday is July 4th. There are fish in the bucket and those raised in the bucket from the start.


    On the other note. Wasn't there some age and birthday math that comes out the same for everyone. Wont happen again for 826 years?

    Easter floats, but I was born on my grandfather's birthday which also was Easter.
    Every year my mom would slap a marshmellow peep on my birthday cake !

    IT IS NOT MY BIRTHDAY [even to this day],
    unless I getz a marshmellow peep; cake or no cake even.

    :)

    A ton of people here locally went down to the Tunica Ms. casinos
    due to all the 11s on the day yesterday. Some were gambling 24.7 on 11/11/11
    and I thought if ya into 11s
    then ya should'a only hit the dice or slots
    at 11 am or 11pm yesterday, on 11 11 11 ! :)

    Some...

    A number of years ago when my son was home on leave, he decided to visit his old high school. It was Dec. 7th. He randomly asked a few of the students if they knew what had happened on that date in history. None of the kids he asked had a clue.

    My flag was flying.

    And so, today, we find ourselves, once again, with open checkbook, paying the bills we thought we might skate on. ;)
