How many "1"s can you count? Wink

This is my very strange hobby... to watch for special numerical combinations on the clock.

Now I'll tell only about "1"
It was November 1st with 9 "one"s + 2 additional in 19.1 deg.C
Couldn't catch the moment at 11:11:11 11/11 with 10 "one"s because I wasn't home  Sad

The special date will be 2011/11/11 at 11:11:11 with 12 "one"s!  Cheesy

That's pretty cool Roman. Thanks for a very unusual post and image.  Smiley

I always get synchronicity with 11.11, I see it everywhere, and now I seen it again on your post and image  Smiley. Apparently many people throughout world see this combination too. Uri Geller is a big believer in its siginifcance.

Would have been cooler still if the temp was 11.1C ... Grin

Perhaps you should get a binary display clock, then it would read all zeros or all ones rather more often.

So in 2011-11-11 I must cool all termometers to 11.1C. Good idea. But not very easy   Wink

Binary display clock?! Now I really want to buy that thing!  Grin

In such moments I usually don't think about making any wishes, neither I do when seeing a meteor  Wink

Martin, thanks that you told me about Uri Geller, I read an interesting story about 11.11 ( http://newsite.uri-geller.com/en/are_your_eyes_attracted_to_11_11 )

Thanks for the link Roman! That's exactly the same page I read years ago on the subject. There was a fabulous talk show on the radio with James Whale years ago on the subject of 11.11 with Uri. It was fascinating. The phone calls from the public which followed were awesome.

I do get alot of synchronicity myself. Most people call them coincidence but I don't believe in coincidence  Smiley

Today is an another special day! Or you have forgot about it? Wink

It happens only once per century (plus you may count 2090.09.09 09:09:09 which has the same number of nines and zeros)

So here it comes: 2009.09.09 09:09:09

(that is a frame extracted from a video which my mum has captured during I wasn't at home...)

P.S. No, don't think that I have missed the event myself. Smiley
Although I was attending a serious lecture at the university, it didn't prevent me from catching the magic moment with my mobile phone

I'm a little slower than you Roman, but kind of had the same idea, less a couple of 9's.

Of course I know that - exactly 10 hours later  Wink

P.S. I have noticed that no other clock in my home except of the weather station displays all necessary 9's (including years). Hmm...
