11/11/11 a.k.a. 11-11-11

Nov 11, 2011 is an extremely unique date. TODAY, is that unique day and 11/11 /11 11:11 happens twice. Once in the morning and once at night. Just remember, you'll always have a second chance. There's several interpretation to this number:

MATHEMATICS

The number eleven is the fifth prime number (contrary to popular belief, the number one ( 1 ) is not a prime number).

The base numeric number system lends itself to some interesting peculiarities as relates to the number eleven.

Base 10 for example:

(2 digits) 11 x 11 = 121

(6 digits) 111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
(9 digits) 111111111 x 111111111 = 12345678987654321

Base 16 (hexadecimal) for example:

(2 digits) 11 x 11 = 121
(6 digits) 111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
(9 digits) 111111111 x 111111111 = 12345678987654321

HISTORICAL

The Great Blue Norther of 11/11/11:

"One-hundred years ago, November 11th, 1911: The Great Blue Norther descended upon America. The day started fine; there were even record highs for that time of year. Then it all changed; temperatures began to drop. Within the space of ten minute: the temperature dropped 40 to 50 degrees; by midnight a 66 degree temperature drop was recorded. There were dust storms, thunderstorms, tornados, and blizzards. Over 300 deaths were reported."

In the interests of full disclosure: NOAA.gov reports that sudden 50 degree temperature drops, though unusual, are not that rare. See chart below.

The Great Blue Norther acquired its name not from the extreme temperature changes, but from the accompanying weather phenomena.


DAY 11.11.11


Day 11.11.11 has already begun in certain parts of the world. A good very early morning to New Zealand and Eastern Russia.

Meanwhile, in the U.S it is the morning of November 10th; in Europe it is the afternoon; in Asia it is night. It is interesting to note that Russia has 11 time zones.
