I saw a trailer for the Jim Carrey movie Number 23 so i did some research about 23 and I found 9+11+2+0+0+1=23. I wonder why this hasn't been posted here before. Odd. I'm also 23 years old.

Iran vowed on Wednesday to press on with its nuclear fuel program, ignoring a U.N. deadline to freeze uranium enrichment or face broader sanctions.
However, the Islamic republic offered to guarantee it would not try to develop atomic weapons.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad remained defiant, even as a 60-day grace period -- that Iran had been given December 23 to stop enriching uranium for nuclear fuel -- was expiring.
