“This one goes to eleven”

11-11-11.  What does it mean?  Not only do we have a date the repeats the same number 3 times, but each number repeats the same digit twice.  The entire series is a palindrome and each of the 3 numbers is a mini-palindrome.  (For an illustration of a palindrome, see “tacocat”.)

Six ones, paired into 3 sets.  Sounds beastly.

Four years, four months and four days ago it was 07-07-07.  Could this all a conspiracy by Seven-Eleven to get free advertizing?  Suspicious, don’t you think?

Interestingly, the film Immortals is being released on 11-11-11, which features a battle between gods and humans worthy of the book of Daniel or Revelation.

Could today be the end of the world as we know it?  (I feel fine.)

On a scale of 1-10 in terms of freaky Armageddon-esque dates, I’d have to say about today, “This one goes to eleven.”
