Feeling particularly lucky today? Or unlucky, perhaps?
It seems like there should be some ethereal connection to the fact that today’s date — 1/11/11 — is made up entirely of ones. Well, except for the zero if you use the dd/mm/yy format.
Was 1/01/10 or 1/10/10 particularly memorable?
Maybe there’s some binary connection. Could a software coder out there tell us what 11111 or 011111 would render on a computer screen? Is it a Da Vinci code thing?
It’s rare, too … or not. We started off the year with 1/01/11, and then we get to do it all again during November when the binary calendar comes up with 11/01/11 and, even better, 11/11/11 — now maybe that’s the day to buy a lottery ticket.
There might be something to it all. The Mayan doomsday is prophesied to be 12/21/12, and that’s somewhat similar in a conceptual way, maybe, because it’s all ones and twos.
Genesis 1:11 reads, “And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so,” so maybe it’s about legalizing pot.
Ahhh, it's probably nothing.
