    It is an odd day of the year. Air feels weird too. Like winter with a heart of spring.

    I don't get the pattern. Why is 11-15-15 not an odd day also? Or, 11-17-15, or 3-7-15.

    Cosmic,11-13-15 are sequential odd numbers.

    Duh!! but in my defense the website used the word "consecutive" instead of "sequential"

    It's funny how some folks notice things of the sort and others don't. I tend to forget which day of the week it i, let alone the date.

    Here in the UK, it's written dd/mm/yy. So I guess our last one was the 9th November 2013, right?

    However, I think it's bollocks because the year is in fact 2015, not 15. So that day was 2000 years ago.
    Same with the 11/11/11 thing!

    Strange things do happen when you're working with large sets of numbers. Last week I was doing a budget projection for next year in my personal finances--at one point during the number crunching "1792" came up on the calculator screen. I still wonder whether I should have taken that as a portent...
