Has anyone else noticed this?
If anyone was born before the year 2000, add the last two digits of one's year of birth and current age(for this year) and it always totals 111.
After the year 2000 the totals are 11.

If you are over 100 years old the number is 211.

#30 Besse Cooper - Living 115 years since August 26 1896: 96 + 115 = 211

Next year we will all total 112 (or 212)

I try not to troll, but sometimes people just fucking deserve it.

It's because it's 2011 (11) and we work on a decimal system, stratifying the zero-point (2000) between two different centuries (100).

True, it only works from 1900 to1999. Still interesting though.

Also the month of July this year has 5 friday's 5 saturday's and 5 sunday's a combination that only occurs every 623 years. the Chinese call this phenomenon the Sacks of Money.
