Although many brides and grooms believe that it’s good luck to tie the knot on a sequential date — say, Nov. 12 of 2013 — perhaps the luck may reside simply in the ease of remembering said anniversary date: 11/12/13. But regardless of your feelings about using auspicious numbers to plan life events, this particular date has a lot to offer anyone with a penchant for number games.
What else does the day have in store?
Consider the following:
- It is the 316th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. There are 49 days remaining until the end of the year.
- David’s Bridal estimates that more than 3,000 couples will get married on 11/12/13; compared to Nov. 11 of last year, that’s a 722 percent increase.
- Fueling the rush to the altar on 11/12 this year is the rarity of it: the next consecutively-numbered date doesn’t roll along until Dec. 13, 2014.
- After that, in purest numerical form, another consecutive date won’t mark the calendar again until next century.
- At 2:11:21 a.m., it will be 12/11 2:11:21 which is three repeats of three numbers: 121-121-121.
- At 8:09:10 a.m., the time and date will read as 8:09:10 11/12/13, a full complement of consecutive numbers.
- At 2:15:16 p.m., when stated in military time, it will be 11/12/13 14:15:16; a series of six increasing numbers.
- For a simple sequence, at 9:10 p.m., it will be 9:10 11/12/13.
- At 10:21:11 p.m., when stated in military time, it will be 11/12 22:21:11, which gives us a palindrome of 11122-22111.
- If your inner number nerd is still hungry for more, there are a total of 22 date patterns for 11/12/13 listed on the Date Pattern Calculator.
MOTHER NATURE NETWORK says:
Fractals are probably best known to the general public as the trippy graphics found on Grateful Dead posters. Fractals are marked by self-similarity, a quality defined as showing similar form at all scales of size. I put together a story about fractals found in nature that shows how the numbers show up in nature in everything from rivers to lightning.
The first nine numbers in the Fibonacci sequence are:
0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21
The sequence starts with 0 and 1. To find the third number, you add the first and second number. To find the fourth number, you add the second and third number. The fifth number is the the sum of the third and fourth. And so on forever. The tenth number of the sequence is 34, or 13 + 21.
To find any number in the Fibonacci sequence, you just add the preceding two numbers in the sequence. This algorithm sounds simple, and it is, but it also turns out that the Fibonacci sequence is responsible for great complexity—namely a large part of how the natural world is put together. The Fibonacci sequence can be found in the formation of sunflowers, galaxies, cellular structure, hurricanes, and honeybees.
My friend Waylon Lewis over at the ever-excellent Elephant Journal, found this wonderful video of the Fibonacci sequence being imagined both by graphics and nature that was put together by digital artist Cristóbal Vila.
