Weird 11!

An interesting forward I received today! I wonder how people can think like this!

The number 11--------- weird

11 has become to be a very interesting number. It could be a forced coincidence, but in any case this is interesting. You decide for yourself

  1. New York City has 11 letters.
  2. Afghanistan has 11 letters.
  3. Ramsin Yuseb (The terrorist who threatened the Twin Towers in 1993) has 11 letters.
  4. George W. Bush has 11 letters. This could be a mere coincidence... (Could it be?)

Now here is what is interesting...

  1. New York is the State # 11
  2. The first plane crushing against the Twin Towers was flight #11.
  3. Flight # 11 was carrying 92 passengers Adding this number gives us: 9+2=11.
  4. Flight # 77 who also hit the towers, was carrying 65 passengers Adding this: 6+5=11.
  5. The tragedy was on September 11, or 9/11. Adding this: 9+1+1=11
  6. The date is equal to the emergency number 911. Adding this: 9+1+1=11

Now we have a very upsetting piece..

  1. The total number of victims inside the planes are 254: 2+5+4=11
  2. The day September 11 is day number 254 of the calendar year: 2+5+4=11
  3. After September 11, there are 111 days more to the end of the year.
  4. The tragedy of 3/11/2004 in Madrid also adds to: 3+1+1+2+4=11.
  5. The tragedy in Madrid happened 911 days after the tragedy of the Twin
