Happy 09/09/09 day!

For those of you who don’t know, it is indeed 09/09/09 day. Woohoo? Ya I know, it’s just another day, but for some reason the general public LOVES symmetry, so let’s give them what they like to hear 😉

First, since it’s not a leap year, September 9, 2009, is the 252nd day of the year. But,

2+5+2=9

Second,

9 x 9 x 9 = 27

and

2+7=9

WOW! Are you amazed yet (directed towards the non-mathematicians). But wait, there’s more!
The day falls on a Wednesday, and both Wednesday and September have:

9 letters!

Double
WOW! And of course if you put 999 upside down you get the number people
associate with evil. Because of this, some people think the world is
going to end today (it’s not so take off your tinfoil hats please).

A
nice fact is that 9 in mandarin (chinese) sounds like forever. So 999
emphasizes this and is considered very lucky. So don’t be surprised if
there are a lot of weddings today.

But wait, there’s more!
09/09/09 is also the last of single digit dates for a long time.
Actually, 92 years until it happens again. And guess what?

9+2=11

Neat eh? And also,

1+1=2

and there is a 2 in 92, and also 27. And 9^2 is 81. And there is a 1 in both 11 and 81!! WOW! Okay okay, I’ll stop. ^_^

Boy, I just can’t wait until 10/10/10 day!
