Let the conspiracy nuts loose!
Another sign of the impending Apocalypse?
I did a quick google if 8/08/08 might mean anything. So far I'm just getting stuff on how it might be luckiest day ever.
So... Uh... *thinks real hard* The conspiracey goes that a secret group of octopuses get together, go play at some ocean casino, play a few games of cards and win themselves at least a hundred of whatever the ocean society uses as currency.
Chinese are stereaotyped to believe to that "8" is lucky number, somehow my civil engineering lecturer said otherwise. He said that chinese prefer odd number more, and that's according to his experiences on his trip to Hong Kong and China.
You heard him, every MISB collector should open thier G1 Red Alerts.
I hear tell Vegas wedding chapels are PACKED.
Whats weird is that it has been 88 days since the Chinese earthquake (today).
Ive never heard of any conspiracy circling 08/08/08. Insight please?
For the Chinese today can't be any luckier but I am not one to believe such superstition. My lucky numbers are 3 and 7 so 8 is like any other number to me.
TIME TO PLAY MY CARDS AGAINST FATE, LOLOLOLOLOL.
Now that you mention it, I haven't been to the casino in a while. Mebbe get my blackjack on tonight!
All that date means to me is that it is the start of the 2008 Beijing Olympics!

The 8/8/08 is considered lucky since the numbers sound similar to the word luck when said in Chinese, especially in the Cantonese dialect, which is primarily spoken in Southern China and Hong Kong (and the most stereotyped version in the US) "bat bat bat" ~ "fat fat fat" [8-8-8 ~ luck-luck-luck=lucky]
I know it reads weird in English, but the "a"s are pronounced with the consonant "a" sound, not with the vowel version in this case. Or I think it is.
My newest niece was born today, does that count for something?
Actually the number 8 in chinese sounds like "Fortune" or "Getting rich" so the 8 symbolizes money and all chinese likes money, that's why they love the association with that number.
My bad, you're right. The meaning is closer to that.
Anywhoo, back to finishing up my masters paper.xD
