3vil numb3ers

So yesterday’s date was 09/09/09. Awesome. Not!

And while quite a few couples thought “What the heck? Let’s get married”, a few weird loners swore that we were all doomed. The end is nigh! Satan is going to appear and we are all going to burn in hell! Yadda, yadda…. Oh looky here dudes, the world is still turning and we’re still on it. Freaks.

If you would put 09/09/09/ on it’s head it would still only read 606060 and not 666. LOL. Ok, ok…but still – the date was not (and I can’t stress that enough) 6/6/6. So get off my back you freakin’ loonies.

Here is how I look at it. Let’s say I am out shopping and it says I owe $ 9,99 on my receipt, I can’t just pay $ 6,66 and be done with it, now can I? If I can, then please let me know – I love a bargain.

Some crazy guy went far out and hijacked a plane in Mexico, blabbing that Christ would be coming soon. Whereby hell was literally only bestowed upon the poor people on that plane with him. I don’t know what it is that is so magical about numbers in certain constellations – it simply makes people weird(er).

On the news last night they reported about the numerous weddings that took place yesterday, citing that the divorce rate in Germany is normally at 50 % but when a couple gets married on “special” dates like 09/09/09 or 08/08/88, the divorce rate goes up by 4%.

Personally I always found it tacky to get married on an easy to remember date like that. How special can your special day be if a gazillion other people did what you did on that very day? And that’s the way the cookie crumbles. What a rant. But it’s over. You may all go in peace.

NYC Girl True. Almost as if any reason will suffice. Crazy. Hope you had a smooth subway ride that day.

There are quite a lot of "special" dates. (07/08/09, 11/10/09, 03/06/09, etc). I bet if you put your mind to it you could think up a reason for any day. For example 10/09/09 is XIXIX in Roman numerals.

I think weirdos just sit around and make crap up. For some reason people need to find something to worry about. It's like when everyone was freaked about
Y2K ...geesh a lot happened there huh?

Kat said...

Brian Smart thinking. You took it one step further...the hubby was impressed with your logic as was I.

Grace Matthews Exactly. Not as crazy as the Y2K disaster but still. I'm still shaking from it. LOL

I slept like a baby and had no worries whatsoever about the date. Ignorance is bliss.

And who wants to get married on a Thursday???
