23: How Weird Is That?

woke up today at 10:13. Ten plus 13 is 23. This article is being published on Feb. 3 -- the second month and third day of the year, or 2/3. Forty-eight years ago on this day, a plane crash killed three legends of rock and roll: Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper. Other culture heroes like William Shakespeare, Johnny Carson and River Phoenix each had their birth and death on the 23rd day of a month. Kurt Cobain died in the year 1994 (1 + 9 + 9 +4 = 23!). You see where this kind of thinking takes you?

Jim Carrey stars in a supernatural thriller titled The Number 23, which opens on Feb. 23. In it, his character receives a book titled, yes, The Number 23, and as a result becomes aware of a lot of occurrences of 23 in his life. The more he looks, the more he sees. Soon he is obsessed, soon after, unhinged. The film is inspired by an actual occult belief in the number 23, called the 23 Enigma. The more you learn about it, the weirder it becomes.

This is a primer on the number 23, itself a prime number, a number divisible without a remainder by only itself and the number 1. The earth's axis is on a 23-degree tilt. Two divided by three gives you .666 repeating, which rounded off early gives you the Number of the Beast. Three divided by two gives you 1.5 which gives you ? nothing exactly. But wait, there's more!

That bit about 2/3 equalling .666 bothered the crap out of me when I heard it in the trailer. It is certainly .6 repeating, but rounded off to the thousandth would be .667. Just my inner math nerd screaming. You'd think there's plenty of other coincidences that they'd throw that one to the side.

what scared me is that as I was reading all this I checked most of it and it was all true then I remembered my birthday is February 17,1994- (2+1+7+1+9+9+4= 33! since there are two 3's I divided 2 by 33 and got 0.060606! which is kinda creepy cuz I'm a good witch and triple 6 is a very bad sign. I know that I'm only 14 and this may just be coincidence but when I looked it up almost everything falls around 23. I even yahoo searched 23 and it gave me a choice to look up the 911 coincidence! weird huh! gives me chills just thinking about it.Saturday March 29,2008 thats todays date. Saturday the seventh day of one week- March the 4th month of a year-its the 29th day of this month- and its 2008 add it all up (7+4+2+9+2+0+0+8=32 backwards 23! I'm not like obssesed with it or anything but it is a little weird and I too saw the movie "23" and it was creepy good!
