Fun Fact of 111…
Here is a fun fact that is somewhat of an oddity! If you add the last two digits of your birth year to the age that you will be this year you will come up with 111. 111 is very much a number significant in the year 2011 because it will have four dates that consist of multiples of the number 1, such as 11/11/11.
This year we will experience 4 unusual dates…. 1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11, 11/11/11
So try this out…. take the last 2 digits of the year you were born plus the age you will be this year and it WILL EQUAL …. 111.
If you were born in 1984, you would be 27 years old this year.
84 + 27 = 111
If you were born in 1954, you would be 58 years old this year.
54 + 58 = 111
Crazy isn’t it!
