11-11-11

Sorry, just had to say something.

From How to Interpret 11/11/11:

11/11/11 (a.k.a. 11-11-11); Friday, November 11, 2011: Historical

Even when taking into account the differences between the Gregorian and Julian calendars:

Nothing significant appears to have happened nine-hundred years ago during the year 1111.

Nothing significant appears to have happened a thousand years ago during the year 1011.

Nothing significant appears to have happened two thousand years ago during the year 11.

That pretty much sums it up. Oh, here’s the obligatory completely non-scientific public opinion survey from the site I pulled the above quote from:

11/11/11 Survey

(Where does that “something good will happen” come from? Why, because as anyone who has ever been inside a casino knows 11 is your lucky number!)

Happy 11th!
