It's a sign.
You know what would be fun? Every clock I see, I change the time to 11:11, then take out the batteries. Good way to get free batteries, and it freaks people out. Kill two birds with one stone.Archon said:Here's an interesting coincidence: earlier today, I looked at the clock and saw 11:11, so I immediately thought of this thread. Of course, that's nothing special. But just now, I was reading through the thread again, and I thought to myself: "obviously this is stupid. If I look at the clock at random times, it's not going to show 11:11 or 1:11 an unusual number of times." Just to prove my point, I looked at my clock. It was 1:11.
I might take notice of that too.Gale said:i only ever notice when its 6:66
Richard Feynman said:You know, the most amazing thing happened to me tonight. I was coming
here, on the way to the lecture, and I came in through the parking lot.
And you won't believe what happened. I saw a car with the license plate
ARW 357. Can you imagine? Of all the millions of license plates in the
state, what was the chance that I would see that particular one tonight?
Oh my God! That's so weird! I just quoted the very same passage in a thread here about two and a half years ago!!!!Math Is Hard said:This thread reminds me of a quote in the preface to Six Easy Pieces:
11:11 by my time zone. I hope that doesn't mean we're soulmates or anything like that.:yuck:rachmaninoff said:Posted at 1:11.
Looks like 5:11 PM. Or 17:11rachmaninoff said:Posted at 1:11.
Nope, that was 3:11 on the east coast. East is to your other right.rachmaninoff said:And now, 1:11 on the east coast.
You posted at 00:14 -- in a two year old thread.BAH! This is really starting to piss me off. I started this post unintentionally at 11:11 pm. Honestly, I don't care what science or the New Agers say, this is a very real phenomenon. Why would so many people see 11:11?
For whatever reason, the time 11:11 has been made salient to you. It is readily "available" in memory, and appears to be related to the "availability heuristic".Confirmation bias???? Blah, blah, blah. You guys don't know what this is either.
It's all over the interweb. Some folks think it's angels, some think it makes us "lightworkers."

When I first bought the car I have now, I started seeing that model everywhere I went. They were all over the place. But it wasn't because tons of people had gone out and bought that model, it's just that I just started noticing them where I hadn't paid any attention before.The availability heuristic is a rule of thumb, heuristic, or cognitive bias, where people base their prediction of the frequency of an event or the proportion within a population based on how easily an example can be brought to mind.
