Little Known Facts: The Supernatural Significance of 2008

The year 2008 has spooky mathematical significance. For example, the square root of 2008 is 44.810713. If you subtract that from 2008, you get 1963.1893. 1963 was the year that Kennedy was assassinated. It is alleged that Kennedy had an affair with Marilyn Monroe, the star of 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes', and 1893 was the year that the author of 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes', Anita Loos, was born. 1963 was also the year that Kenya gained its independence. By an astonishing co-incidence, Kenya begins with the same letter of the alphabet as Kennedy while its second biggest city, Mombasa, begins with the same letter as Marilyn's second name, Monroe! K is the 11th letter of the alphabet. If you take the 4th and 7th letters of the square root of 2008 (44.810713), you get 11. If you add 4 and 7 together you get 11 again. If you add the individual numbers of the square root of 2008 together they make 28 - which is 4 times 7! If you divide 2008 by Pi (3.14) and multiply by 3, you get 1918, the year WWI ended. WWI included the battles of Anita and Loos, and began with an assassination in the Balkans, which contains a K!

Finally (and this is really spooky), if you add 1963.1893 to 44.810713 you get (you've guessed it)...2008!

How strange is that!!

Bring yourself luck and irritate your friends and workmates by forwarding this to everyone you know, otherwise bad things will happen somewhere probably, and it will be all your fault. Have a nice day.


  1. i dont wana be a jerk or anything, but thats all just common numbers. it can be done with alot of them. its only coincidence and has no meaning behind it.

  2. Anonymous - No worries - you're not a jerk at all. I don't have much truck with spooky number/coincidence stuff. Actually all the 'Little Known Facts' posts in my blog are complete nonsense; put it down to a misplaced sense of humour.
