The fascination with ‘significant’ numbers is another thing I can’t get my head around. All the ‘divisible by 3‘, ’666′, 33 malarkey that people are into is just baffling.
In a comment over at mysteriousnz, farside notes…
Hey guys, I thought you’d be all over the Osama execution… Killed by 6 seals on the 66th anniversary of Hitler’s death and shot through the Left eye?
Do these guys even check their facts before making such statements? For starters, there weren’t six seals involved, the number was more like 79 (and a dog). (I think farside is getting confused by the name of the operational unit, which was SEAL team 6 – the navy equivalent of the army’s Delta Force).
Undaunted, farside turns to the recent royal wedding…
I don’t even see a mention of the royal wedding coincidentally on the same weekend where 660 guests a 6 bridesmaids & groomsmen assembled to see the pair get married.
There were, in fact, somewhere around 1900 guests at the ceremony.
And eight people in the bridal party: four bridesmaids, two groomsmen, the best man and the maid-of-honor.
However, Kate’s dress did have a 270-centimetre train.
And 270 is divisible by 3!
Make of that what you will.
