1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11, and 11/11/11

Options
This year we have 1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11, and 11/11/11.

Now, take the last two digits of the year you were born and add how old you'll be this year. The answer will be 111 if you were born in the last century, and 11 if in this one. I'm not sure how it works but it does! :noway:

    My friend would love you. He's totally into the conspiracy theories behind the entire "11:11" numerology thing. I forget the name of the guy, but Rick something or other (I think... I'll have to get his name and add), is one of the guys he's fascinated with. He died / was killed. Conspiracies abound. But interesting stuff nonetheless if you're ever bored. And of course, you can google and find 11:11 theories on the recent shootings in AZ, and related to the dead animals in Arkansas and other areas.

    It's math. If you had done the same thing on the year 2000. Add your age to the age you would be on that year's BD, it would have been 100 or 0. Next year it'll be 112 or 12 and the next year 113 or 13.
