Armistice Day is the anniversary of the official end of World War I, November 11, 1918. It commemorates the armistice signed between the Allies and Germany at Compiègne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front, which took effect at eleven o'clock in the morning — the "eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month." While this official date to mark the end of the war reflects the ceasefire on the Western Front, hostilities continued in other regions, especially across the former Russian Empire and in parts of the old Ottoman Empire.

And don't forget when you take a dozen eggs out the cooler and cook one....you are left with 11.
American football has 11 players on the field per team.
Grover Cleveland was Americas 22nd president. He was president TWICE. (1885-1889, 1893-1897) 22(nd) divided by 2(times president) = 11

It's one hell of a coincidence when the law of conservation of angular momentum inexplicably makes itself scarce as buildings fall via gravity.
