Read, then do the exercise. 1) New York City has 11 letters 2) Afghanistan has 11 letters 3) Ramsin Yusch (the terrorist who threatened to destroy the Twin Towers in 1993) has 11 letters 4) George W Bush has 11 letters This could be mere coincidence, but this gets more interesting: 1) New York is the 11th state 2) The first plane crashing into the Twin Towers was flight number 11 3) Flight 11 was carrying 92 passengers; 9 + 2 = 11 4) Flight 77, which also hit Twin Towers, was carrying 65 passengers; 6 + 5 = 11 5) The tragedy was on September 11, or 9/11 as it is now known; 9 + 1 + 1 = 11 6) The date is equal to the US emergency services number 911; 9 + 1 + 1 = 11 Sheer coincidence? Read on and make up your mind: 1) The total number of victims inside all the hi-jacked planes was 254; 2 + 5 + 4 = 11 2) September 11 is day 254 of the year; again 2 + 5 + 4 = 11 3) The Madrid bombing took place on 3/1½004; 3 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 4 = 11 4) The tragedy of Madrid happened 911 days after the Twin Towers incident Now, this is where things get totally eerie: The most recognised symbol for the USA, after the Stars & Stripes, is the eagle. The following verse is taken from the Quran, the Islamic holy book: "For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome Eagle. The wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the lands of Allah and lo, while some of the people trembled in despair still more rejoiced: for the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah and there was peace." The verse is number 9.11 of the Quran. Still unconvinced? Try this and then see how you feel... Open Microsoft Word and do the following: 1) Type, in capitals, Q33 NY. This is the tail number of the first plane to hit the Twin Towers 2) Highlight the Q33 NY 3) Change the font size to 48 4) Change the font to Wingdings Now what do you think? Granted, if you look hard enough you can find a pattern in anything but this takes the mic!
