Word For The Day, Wednesday, 12-12-12 -- numerology

Word For The Day, Wednesday, 12-12-12 -- numerology

;


In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of "Word for the Day".

numerology [noo-muh-rol-uh-jee]

hear it pronounced

noun:
the study of numbers, such as the figures in a birth date, and of their supposed influence on human affairs

Etymology: Origin: 1911, "study of the occult meaning of numbers," a hybrid from L. numerus "number" + Gk. -logia, from logos "one who speaks (of a certain topic)." A correct formation would be arithmology, from Gk. arithmos "number."

Related forms

numerological

— adj

numer'ologist

— n

Not to be confused with number theory.

Numerology is any study of the purported divine, mystical or other special relationship between a number and some coinciding observed (or perceived) events. It has many systems and traditions and beliefs. Numerology and numerological divination by systems such as isopsephy were popular among early mathematicians, such as Pythagoras, but are no longer considered part of mathematics and are regarded as pseudomathematics or pseudoscience by modern scientists

Today, numerology is often associated with the paranormal, alongside astrology and similar divinatory art.

Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

Here is my example with WFTD.

Since today’s date is 12-12-12, and with the similar 12-21-12 Mayan End of Days approaching rapidly, those who believe in numerology have told us that it is folly to worry about the fiscal cliff or the deficits that are mounting up at an exponential level. Don’t Worry. Be Happy. Vote for Obama. If the world doesn’t end, he’ll take care of us.

Here's something numerological - Today is Aaron Rodgers Day in the state of Wisconsin.

It's also National Sound Check Day (1-2 1-2 1-2).

It was lucky I decided to become a numerologist on 12-12-12. Or was it fate?

Simple as can be, numerology is the study of numers as in “I think you might have a numer”.

Here is one of the musicians we saw this weekend, performing at the local museum. He also plays guitar and is a good singer. Having Irish parents explains his brogue, although he was born and raised in South London.

Here is the other performer who played with him. We heard Blue Christmas on the pedal steel and it was very nice. He's touring up north this month in PA, so I recommend going to see him.

I LOVE that. I’m knitting with alpaca now on a cap for my nephew and it’s my favorite fiber. It’s soft, light, and surprisingly warm for the loft.

There you go! Finally something worthy of note -- Aaron Rodgers Day.

I should add that since Obama doesn't really know where, or when, he was born -- numerology is no help figuring out what he's going to do next.

i’ll take that one too!
i was being very laid back but it sounds like a ton of people are coming and so now i am starting to freak about not having enough food. i always have a TON left over, but there was that time that xshub ordered only 2 medium pizzas for 15 little boys for xsboy’s bday party at a paintball park. the dominos guy had to drive to this paintball park and it wasn’t like we could order more. i was horrified and still have nightmares about that, it was GROSSLY insufficient, and IMO it’s a fate worse than death to not have enough food for a party.

Liberals always make the mistake of using static, rather than dynamic analysis. That is, they don’t input the change in behavior that a given tax or regualtion will cause.

If a bridge toll of a dollar brings in a million bucks a year, democrats assume that a toll of ten dollars would bring in 10 million bucks. They don’t consider that people might drive a few extra miles to avoid the toll, or stay home altogether.

Despite the fact that they themselves change their own behavior to avoid the consequences of their tax and regulatory changes.

It is odd that, despite the dumberology in Washington and ABCNNBCBS, there is still less inflation than I expected from Obama’s printing presses the past four years.....

We’ve got inflation - much, much more than publicized ... but still not what it “should” based on “how much money have been printed”/”how much goods and services have been created.”

Maybe I’m silly, but I brought fresh sage and cedar from the woods to smudge with, lighted special blessed candles and I’m burning incense...

Perhaps the endtimes are foretold
In arcane myth and numerology
But if that seems so crazy,
Well, consider the psychology-

To say it just mass hysteria
Is to ignore an opening door-
Even a stock-predicting computer
Came up with something more

If it all goes boom as predicted
When 12-21-12 comes around
I’ll await my fate right here,
Praying and gone to ground..m
