518


A lot of times when I check out what time it is, it reads 5:18! (ansam518 refers to Ansam May 18 = My birthday)... I told my friend that and she said mostly when she look at her mobile... it reads 11:11...

Isn't that interesting? Do I make sense? Do you get that? Check the time to find out it reads a certain time/number often?

We knew someone who always got 6:18... he lived in apartment 618 when he was in college and when we got invited to his wedding... it was in his wife's house, which is in block 6, house 18!

i get 1.23, 2.34, 3.45, and other consecutive numbers frequently. I usually see it as an opportunity to close my eyes and make a wish whenever i am driving around and it occurs.

my theory is the following:

11:11 is always noticed there on the clock because it is easy to remember. You'd recognize it in an instant if you see it on a clock/watch somewhere (given the similarity in the digits, and the hype surrounding the 'mysterious' 11:11 time).

11:25 (an example) is not so intreresting (without similar digits or all ones), and thus you might've seen it an equal number of times as 11:11 but failed to recognize it or even care about it since there's no hype surrounding a lame number like 11:25.

Did it make sense? I sure hope so.

What I'm saying is that technically and logically, with the help of good coincidences, the number of times you have seen the number 11:25 is close or equal to the number of times you've noticed 11:11, it's just that 11:25 is boring whereas 11:11 has a movie and a blogpost on ansam518 about it :p

To prove this, I'll try an experiment for a week. What I'll do is write the time down on a piece of paper every time I read it and will post any interesting finds I get.

Yes, I suck the fun out of things lol :(

oh and 518 is undeniably recognized by you since it's your birthday and part of your blog's name. eshda3wa notices 9:11 (maybe because of september 11th?)

22:22, 3:33, are the same because they're easy to notice as well.

Ok I should get back to work and leave this lol

Ansam said...

I am sometimes asked what time it is, and when I check.... it is still 5:18! So your theory kinda weak :-P

I think its cuz these dates are familiar so we pay attention?
