11/11/11 : Welcome to the Age of Prophecy and Mass Stupidity

Significance of 11/11/11

Based on past calendar dates such as 10/10/10, or October 10, 2010, no significant or unusual phenomenon occurs simply because of a date that has the same numbers in a sequence.

The numerical sequence of November 11 holds a special significance in the binary numeral system, which is the base-2 number system that represents numeric values using two symbols, 0 and 1. The date of November 11 has a binary number of 111110 where it has a decimal equivalent of 62 in the year 2010, and a binary number of 111111 with a decimal equivalent of 63 in the year 2011.

The number eleven has a special characteristic in mathematics where it is the sixth prime number. It contains some interesting peculiarities where the number eleven times itself equals a palindrome:
 

 
 

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

Most predictions and opinions concerning 11/11/11 are based on or rooted in its mathematical uniqueness as a number.

11*11*11: There are three possible scenarios:

1. Something good happens— There is absolutely no scientific basis for this belief. There are no known logical premises for this belief. The belief that something good will happen is based solely on spiritualism, faith, and/or innate optimism. This belief is not necessarily a bad thing; we don’t know everything; the probability is not zero.

2. Nothing happens— This is the most likely scenario. Just because an unusual date number sequence occurs doesn’t mean that something extraordinary will happen. Usually it’s a non-event.

3. Something bad happens— There is absolutely no scientific basis for this belief. There are no known logical premises for this belief. The belief that something bad will happen is based solely on pessimism of reality. This belief is not necessarily false; after all, things are generally/usually a mess. The probability is not zero.

It's a Sarah Palindrome






Lest we forget, Veterans Day and Armistice Day is on 11/11/11, but that is so like humans to blow off the important holidays we create. So let us please have a moment of silence for our fallen and living soldiers.



Amen.

Nancy & Harry

Nancy Pelosi called Harry Reid into her office one day and said, “Harry, I have a plan to win back Middle America in 2012!”

“Great, Nancy , but how?” asked Harry.

“We’ll get some cheesy clothes and shoes, like most middle Americans wear, then stop at the pound and pick up a Labrador Retriever. Then, we’ll go to a nice old country bar in Montana and show them how much admiration and respect we have for the hard working people living there.”

So they did, and found just the place they were looking for in Bozeman , Montana .

With the dog in tow, they walked inside and stepped up to the bar. The Bartender took a step back and said, “Hey! Aren’t you Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi?” “Yes we are!” said Nancy , “And what a lovely town you have here. We were passing through and Harry suggested we stop and take in some local color.”

They ordered a round of bourbon for the whole bar, and started chatting up a storm with anyone who would listen.

A few minutes later, a grizzled old farmer came in, walked up to the Labrador , lifted up its tail, looked underneath, shrugged his shoulders and walked out.

A few moments later, in came another old farmer. He walked up to the dog, lifted up its tail, looked underneath, scratched his head and left the bar.

For the next hour, another dozen farmers came in, lifted the dog’s tail, and left shaking their heads.

Finally, Nancy asked, “Why did all those old farmers come in and look under the dog’s tail? Is it some sort of custom?”

“Lord no,” said the bartender. “Someone’s out there running around town, claiming there’s a Labrador Retriever in here with two assholes

Occupy-worthy complaints.......

We always hear about problems with third world countries. What about the greatest social problems in first world countries?

“My hand is too fat to shove into the Pringles container so I have to tilt it.”

“I didn’t have a lousy childhood, so I can’t turn my pain into art.”

“I had too much food for lunch and now I’m tired.”

“I forgot to bring my phone with me to the bathroom and I was bored the whole time.”

“I’m kind of hungry, but my roommate has guests over so if I go into the kitchen I’ll have to introduce myself.”

“My laptop battery is low, but the charger is way over there.”

“The Domino Pizza Tracker app is not working, so I don’t know when to put my pants on.”

“I can’t hear the TV while I’m eating crunchy snacks.”

“I’m trying to text while at a red light, but I keep making all the greens.”

“My GPS made me drive through the ghetto.”

“I have to find my own girlfriend because my culture doesn’t practice arranged marriages.”
