# Fun with 23

By Gary R, in , posted: 3-Oct-2007 16:38

I recently watched the thriller the Number 23 staring Jim Carrey (in a serious role) as a man obsessed with the number 23 and its supposed significance with all aspects of his life. After watching the movie I started toying with numbers and found some uncanny references to the number 23. Of course if you look hard enough and are creative enough I am sure you can find '23' everywhere

I was born in 1967:
1+9+6+7=23

On the 21st day of the 11th month:
21+11=32 which is 23 backwards

I started dating my wife on the 24th day of the 8th month 2003:
24+8=32 again 23 backwards and there is a 23 in the year

We married on the 21st day of the 2nd month:
21+2=23

My first name is Gary, this is stretching it but if I add up where the letters are in the alphabet:
7(G)+1(A)+18(R)+25(Y)=51 or 23+23+2+3=51

My initials are GCR:
7(G)+3(C)+18(R)=28 which is 23+2+3

The Labour party adds up to 69 which is 23x3=69

19(S)+1(A)+20(T)+1(A)+14(N)=55 or 23+32

America invaded Iraq (invasion v2.0) on the 20th day of the 3rd month 2003:
20+3=23 and there is a 23 in the year

The attack on the World Trade Center occurred on the 11th day of the 9th month 2001:
11+9+2+1=23 (stretching it a bit) and 2001 is 23x87

A coincidence or not?

Its a great movie.

I must admit I enjoyed it.

the 23 thing is pretty much like the "bible codes"

look hard enough and you'll find a match anywhere.

"A coincidence or not?"

I can answer that with "42"!
