Like Jefferson said about his birthday

That is Samantha's birthday, too. 11:11. So that is why it is (conceivably) important to me. So I notice it too. 11:11. But I have a reason. What are other people's?

I am also partial to 5/3, which is my birthday. I am partial at the poker table to those cards, which isn't necessarily smart, but sometimes you get a straight out of it.

I understand bias, and confirmation bias. I also understand why I'm prone to remembering seeing 11:11.

But why others? What does it mean? People don't seem to remember 10:10, or 9:09 (I do, because my baby says she's coming on the one after 909), or 12:12?

I know there is something about the 11:11 phenomenon. Another Ron Paul supporter told me about it. What is it supposed to mean?

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
