Today is 11/11/11, a numerical sequence that arrives only once in a century. (So does 11/12/11 and a bunch of other combinations, but never mind.) If you are at all superstitious, don't miss this rare opportunity to make a fool of yourself.
--Buy 11 lottery tickets, so you can lose 11 times the money you do on normal days when you buy only one.
--If you're an expectant mother, insist that your doctor deliver the baby by c-section today. The maternity ward will be inundated with superstitious mothers-to-be, and in all the confusion there's a better than average chance you'll accidentally bring home a baby from a smarter gene pool.
--Get married today. For guys, this isn't superstitious, just common sense: 11/11 is a memorable date, and you're less likely to be murdered by your wife for forgetting your anniversary.
--Inform everyone you meet that today marks the end of the Mayan "long count" calendar cycle and the beginning of the Mayan year 2012. They might mistake you for Cliff Claven of "Cheers."
I hope you weren't expecting anything profound.
If I ever need to plead insanity, this blog will provide valuable evidence.
