Questionmark_130Hi everybody! Today is November 11, 2011: 11/11/11! Freaky, right?

Here is a trick to amaze your friends and family. Add your age to the last two digits of your birth year. The answer will be 11. For example, if you are 10 and were born in 2001 . . .
10 + 01 = 11

Try it. It will work with everyone born in this century. For people born in the 1900s, the answer will be 111 on account of we’re older. Test it on your friends, your parents, your dog. (Wait, it might not work in dog years. But if it does, leave a Comment letting us know!)

I don’t know why it works, but it does. It must be some fluke-y thing about 11, so Happy 11/11/11 Day! The numbers will never line up like this again in your lifetime unless you live another hundred years. Although . . . some people think the world is going to end in 2012. Personally, I’m not worried one bit. I think the world will still be around for 12/12/12 and beyond.

    That’s cool! It doesn’t work in dog years but it works for all my dogs in human years. It doesn’t work on my dad or my mom–doesn’t equal 111. But it works on me, my brother, and my sisters.

    I wonder how that works. I think the only reason it doesn’t work for some people here is because their birthday hasn’t come yet. But it worked for me, that is so cool!!

    I did the math and it ended in 11. I think 11/11/11 is special since it only happens every 100 years. I also think it’s important that we realize what a special day it is!

    I think that this is really cool. Unfortunately, it does not work on me. I will definitely tell my family members about this. I think this date is really special. Thank for the facts!
