Would be even cooler with all those Sevens that went to Tail of the Dragon today. Well... if the road was highway 7 instead of 29.

My fiancee and I went into Shane Co today to buy a wrap (wedding band) for her engagement ring and a ring for me and one of employees there said that you'd be surprised with how many people were buying their rings just a week before their 7/7/07 wedding...

That's almost too much good luck. You know they're doomed.

Actually, 07/07/2007. 07/07/07 was 2000 years before, though by the calendar of the day, it probably was something completely different.

Not trying to be OCD or a nerd about it, but I get annoyed by people (not saying you) who find some significance in meaningless numbers.

For example:
  • 06/06/(20)06 - Some predicted this would be the end of the world, since "666" is The Number of the Beast.

  • 01/01/2000 - Some predicted this would be the end of the world, because, who knows... the Millenium Bug? People can really be morons.

  • 07/07/(20)07 - Live Earth and other Kumbaya events held probably due to the relevance of the number 777 - the number from the Torah composed of 3 representing God (trinity) and 4 representing humanity, so God + Man = 7 (perfection), and triplication of perfection is Godly Perfection, or divinity. But 7.7.2007 is not 777.

Stuff like that.

Having said that, yeah, it's cool... 07.07.07

I was 4-wheeling deep in the White Mountains, got two flat tires and had to hike out of the backcountry 19 miles in 100 degree heat wearing a pair of orange puma driving shoes. Luckiest day my ass.
