Good Luck Bad Luck

Numbers. What do they mean? People have lucky numbers, unlucky numbers, and ordinary numbers. Ever heard of someone saying, "11:11 make a wish!" What they mean is that the numbers 11:11 are shown on the clock, granting you a wish. Some believe the act of yelling that it's 11:11 ruins everyone's wish. The wish doesn't count if someone tells you, or if you set an alarm. Who knows. Everyone has different rules towards this.

On 8/9/10 at 11:12 a baby girl was born. This is crazy to even think this could happen... WRONG! According to our World Vital Events over at http://www.census.gov/cgi-bin/ipc/pcwe there is a baby born every 4.2 seconds. This means during that one minute there was most likely a lot more kids born. Not to be a negative Nick, I do have to say to have the birthday would be pretty cool.

This next story is more rare than the baby one. A 13 year old boy was struck by lightning at 13:13 hours... on Friday the 13th! You might say he has bad luck, but I think he will be fine. He did survive, and now he has an awesome story to tell!

Alright, time to top the 13 year old story with a story with a couple. Now we're mixing it up! This couple born on the same day as each other. They got married on the same day (different year... duh). Then 43 years later they both died on the same day.

And you thought math class was weird... well ya I guess, that teacher was pretty crazy.
