Just now I was putting on some fresh water in the coffee maker and noticed it was 12:34. After 11:11 that’s my favorite time.
Back in 1989 I made a point of coming home from work so I could have my picture taken in front of the TV when the Weather Channel’s clock showed 01:23:45 6/7/89. The next year I also observed 12:34:56 7/8/90.
Anything along these lines you care to share?
A couple we know will either call us or we’ll call them at 11:11 (usually PM) on Nov/11 just to catch up on things.
I also oddly enough always look at my cell phone, computer clock, etc at 11:11 (AM and PM). It drives me nuts, since I am not the kind of person who constantly looks at the time - maybe 5 times a day. Anybody know why this is?
I do the 11:11 thing, because it was something that just started happening all the time…I couldn’t help but notice.
Sort of weird. About 16 yrs ago, it got to where I could not look at a clock anywhere w/o seeing this mumber combo at least once a day. It actually started to freak me out a bit, since even when I wasn’t trying to or, over time, went out of my way NOT to, it still happened. In random ways such as falling asleep with my infant son in the living room, then waking and carrying him to bed and glancing at the clock (11:11) or waking, showering, eating, happening to see the clock on the microwave at exactly 11:11.
Or being out and seeing a bank sign at just this time. I mean, it was approaching Twilight Zone proportions.
(and then we moved into a new house on Nov. 11 and I couldn’t sleep all night, freaking out over it being some premonition of disaster! Turns out nothing happened, but yeah, it freaked me out and I wondered)
I later mentioned this to a friend and he said, “Oh, there’s a book about that.” I said, “What? A book about my experience?” He said, “No, a BOOK, called 11:11, just like you see it on a digital clock.”
I located the book and looked through it (didn’t buy it)…turns out there is a worldwide cult built around this 11:11 stuff…they believe it is a pre-programmed signal to those of us descended from aliens FROM said aliens that it is time to ascend beyond this plane. If we miss it, we will be stuck in another very long cycle of earthly evolution. Guess I missed it (or continue to:D) S’ok…I still have shit to do here.
Still does from time to time, not just on clocks but receipts now and then ($11.11), etc. If I notice it now, I take a moment to pause and give thanks and send prayers/wishes out. Why not? Good a time as any.
Blues reference: Anybody out there know the song “21 Minutes to Nine” by Willie Love & His Three Aces … a piano player who recorded for the wonderful Lillian McMurray, on her Trumpet label in the 1950’s.
Okay, people, I have one of those fuzzy memory things going. There’s a movie with a title of some clock time I can’t remember. Let’s just say 11:39 since I don’t believe it was 11:11.
It’s a lot like Rashomon in that it gets different viewpoints of what’s going on before and after that time at night from several different scenarios.
There’s a wreck. There’s a robbery of a Stop-and-Rob. There’s a section where a kid’s dick gets cut off and lost on the roadway. A guy goes after his missing daughter. And there’s something in a graveyard.
At least two name actors, but I can’t remember who.
Not that old a movie. Let’s say no older than the 90’s.
