    We humans order things so we can predict the seasons, floods, etc, and eventually refine them into a system that makes our primitive attempts to define time into something that coincides a little better with the natural system. Then the weirdos attempt to assign significance to the numbers themselves.... Pretty scary how gullible "smart" apes can be. This is one seriously off-the-wall numerologist.

    In the USA, yes. But remember our discussion yesterday? In Europe 8-8 would mean that it's ... uh ... er, never mind.

    If yesterday, the day before that, and every day that there has ever been is any guide, I expect today will be extraordinary. Here are a few things that happened on 8/8/'08 in the past.

    8/8/1908 - Wilbur Wright makes his first flight at a racecourse at Le Mans, France. It's the Wright Brothers' first public flight and the French public goes wild. (I guess it was Orville doing all the flying before that and always in private. Probably it doesn't take much to make the French go wild.)

    8/8/1808 - Fleming Cobbs sold 260 acres of land on Davis Creek in Augusta County, VA to Zachariah F. Estill. Estill subsequently built a grist mill and a sawmill on the land. (Some sawmills continue to exist to this very day 8/8/2008, but I can't find out if Estill's still does)
    Also, James Shaw, a member of the Texas Republic House of Representatives and of its Senate, was born on that day.

    8/8/1708 - Philippe II d'Orleans wrote a letter of congratulations to Antoine Coypel as a result of which, the Duc d'Antin choose Coypel to paint the ceiling of his nave.

    8/8/1608 - During his second voyage of exploration of the Chesapeake Bay, John Smith left Tockwogh village and headed down the bay where flood tides slowed his barge.

    8/8/1508 - The first settlement on the island of Caparra was established by Juan Ponce de Leon.

    Have a nice day.:smile:

    Where did you come up with 8 being a lucky number? I've heard of 13 being bad luck and 7 being good luck and 69 being really good luck, but 8?

    Eight is the next luckiest number after seven.
