Fun Fact
Okay this is weird… this calendar year we will have the following
dates: 1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11, and finally 11/11/11…now figure this
one out, take the last 2 digits of the year you were born and add the
age you will be this year. ….every birthday will add up to 111!

C'mon Jan. We haven't had 11/11/11 yet(not till next Nov.) so one of your numbers is off. I know. Picky, picky me. But, I find this interesting. I think you meant 1/11/11 ?

Debkcs has put out an interesting mathematical example. I love it!

Now if we extrapolate to next year the numbers will be 112. However, this year those numbers work only if one was born before 2000. From 2000 to 2010 the number comes up from 1 to 11. No hundreds I can see. Still in the 1's. Which brings me to ask why?

Hey! I'm just an extrapolating knitter. What do I know? Let's ask Debkcs! Hey Deb! You want to do some splainin'? By all means quote your source.

No. I do mean 11/11/11. My comment wasn't in the past tense.

Open a blank Word document and type the following:
=rand(200,99)
Press 'Enter' after wards... Wait 5 seconds! Foxy huh!?

It is a little scary and reminds you of the power of computer code.

=rand(200,99) enter

In about 5 seconds 471 pages of text shows up. It appears to be the same group of paragraphs from the help files repeated again and again for 471 pages.

Sorry, I don't have any more of these, but apparently there are sites that do. My math genius friend just feeds me enough easy ones to keep me interested and feeding him home made sourdough bread.
