The Eleven, One More Year

I'm glad that we only have one more year of this fascination with dates and numbers. Up until 2001, we only ever freaked out about Friday the 13th. Since then 1/1/01, 2/2/02,3/3/03, 4/4/04,5/5/05,6/6/06, 7/7/07,8/8/08, 9/9/09, 10/10/10 and this year 11/11/11 have all lead to frenzy. This year the number frenzy happened to fall on Veterans day and out trend it on Twitter. Shame. People making a big deal out of it being 11/11/11 at 11:11.11sec. People having babies... Getting married... Buying lotto tickets,... Playing bingo ( yup couldn't barely find a parking space before church.)... Craziness. So, at least there's only one more frenzy year to worry about, 12/12/12. It makes me wonder how the next generation or the generations to come will hand this frenzy on January 1, 3001.
I think just gives us something else to talk about besides Presidential candidates, national debt, and child predators. Here's I've websites explanation of it all.

No. With regards to the 11:11 phenomenon, rather than being a supernatural warning sign, psychologists say it is a classic case of "apophenia," or the human tendency to find meaning or patterns in randomly occurring data. This condition feeds on itself, because the more conscious you are of something — such as repeating 11s — the more often you'll notice it in the world around you, and thus the more certain you'll become that the pattern is real.
