Implosion, this is slightly off-topic, but I couldn't help but notice from that chart you posted earlier on this page that the 2012 winter solstice is noted at precisely 11:11.
"These documents don't tell us anything about UFOs but they do show how desperate the MoD have been to conceal the interest which the intelligence services had in the subject," said Dr Clarke.
The trail begins with a request, in 1976, from a UFO enthusiast called Julian Hennessy for access to the MoD's records on UFO sightings. A note from the UFO desk to the MoD's head of security on March 23 shows that officials intended to refuse him access on the grounds that the files contain confidential information and "very little of value to a serious scientific investigator".
We have made 223 formal hypothesis tests based on intuitive grounds educated by accumulating experience. A "rigorous" subset excludes 13 inadequately specified or partially redundant cases identified in an external review. An error was made in the original analytical recipes for all New Year events, and the recipe for the variance analyses was changed in 2004. Although the New Year Events are still in the summary, it may be argued they should be excluded. The GCP Hypothesis Registry provides narrative descriptions of tests made up to mid 2003, and formal specifications, including identification of the rigorous subset, are given in the Formal Hypothesis list.
Wernher von Braun
Born March 23, 1912 and died June 16, 1977.
This man was one of the leading experts in rocket technology and its development both in Germany and the United States. He was the leader before and during WWII of the rocket development program. When the war came to an end he gained entry to the United States VIA Operation Paperclip where he worked on the American ICBM program then went on to become a Director at NASA. To this day he is known as "The Father of the United States Space Program".
At a time when I needed a four-wheel-drive vehicle and had decided that I really wanted it to be a Range Rover, I was flipping through The Robb Report when I saw a photo of the one I had to have. It was an '89 model that had been used in the French production of the movie The Jungle Book, and it featured an appropriate paint job: a base of matte black, my favorite color, embellished all over with brightly colored, hand-painted jungle plants and animals, sort of Rousseau-esque but more primitive (for all you art lovers). And it was a bargain! Only twenty-three thousand dollars would make it mine. That price, furthermore, just happened to coincide with the amount of money my brother Tommy, as executor of our mother's estate, had just told me to expect in the mail; all the legalities had been satisfied, and that was my share.
Cash - The autobiography of Johnny Cash [with Patrick Carr]
The U.S. has carried out 1,030 nuclear weapons tests (the last and final test on 23 September 1993).
Since 16 July 1945 there have been 2,044 tests worldwide, the equivalent of one test occurring somewhere in the world every nine days for the last fifty years.
Japan was the top importer of U.S. beef, buying 240,000 tonnes valued at $1.4 billion in 2003. After the discovery of the first case of BSE in the U.S. on December 23, 2003, Japan stopped U.S. beef imports in December 2003.

I think this is true ... when you WANT to find a number, you will find it everywhere.
"Mad Dog" Coll was shot on 23rd Street when he was 23 years old; a year later, Dutch Shultz (who paid for the Coll assassination) was himself fatally shot on October 23, 1935. Mark Krompier, king of the Harlem numbers racket, was non-fatally shot on the same October 23, 1935. ("It's got to be one of them coincidences," he told police.) Schultz's killer Charlie Workman, served 23 years of a life sentence and was then paroled.

This is the diary of a practical experiment suggested by Robert Anton Wilson in his book "Prometheus Rising" and designed to illustrate a fundamental psychological and parapsychological phenomenon - What one believes shapes one's reality and what the thinking mind thinks, the proving mind will prove. Here is the experiment outline in full. I have substituted the word 'quarter' for 'penny' in this extract:
Visualize a penny vividly, and imagine vividly that you are going to find such a penny in the street. Then, look for the penny every time you take a walk, meanwhile continuing to visualize it. See how long it takes you to find the penny.
Explain the above experiment by the hypothesis of "selective attention", that is, believe that there are lots of lost pennies everywhere and you were bound to find one eventually. Go looking for another penny.
Explain the above by the alternative "mystical" hypothesis that "mind controls everything". Believe that you made the penny manifest in the universe. Go looking for another penny.
