Eleven Thousand Days on This Earth!
Back when I was a kid (like 5th grade I think) I started crunching the number of days since I was born and was surprised to find out that I had a big "anniversary" later that year - 5000 days old! I was stoked and tried to convince my mom to bake cupcakes for my class and other "birthday" related niceties (minus the gifties). I couldn't get the cupcakes, but I did take the opportunity to tell everyone I met that day about my 5K Day.
Know what? Nobody cared!
Later on in life (much later). I wrote a computer program to figure these things out for me using the magic of Julian Days. I even remembered to account for leap days which I had forgotten when I was 9. Again, I was the only one who used the program.
So, here I am again telling everyone again, but this time I'm armed with Internet Numbers! That's correct, I used a website to get the information this time so I know it is correct! Here's some useless information gleaned from timeanddate.com
Isn't that interesting? Should I have a party? Should I feel old? I will when I turn 11 & Eleventyone in a few months on Tuesday, October 25, 2005. Now THERE's a reason to celebrate! 11,111 which is all about #1 and 31 in binary which just happens to be the number of years I've seen! Further more, if you take the name "Eric Dalton" and take the alphabetic numeric equivalent (A=1, Z=26 etc), add them together and then add the digits to get to to a numerologically significant digit you get... that's right! 11! Anyway, that's all I have on this topic. Here's some links to other interesting date/time related websites:
