    1) New York City has 11 letters



    2) Afghanistan has 11 letters.



    3) Ramsin Yuseb (The terrorist who threatened to destroy the Twin Towers in 1993) has 11 letters.



    4) George W Bush has 11 letters.



    5) The two twin towers make an "11"



    This could be a mere coincidence, but this gets more interesting:




    1) New York is the 11th state.



    2) The first plane crashing against the Twin Towers was flight number 11.



    3) Flight 11 was carrying 92 passengers. 9 + 2 = 11



    4) Flight 77 which also hit Twin Towers, was carrying 65 passengers. 6+5 = 11



    5) The tragedy was on September 11, or 9/11 as it is now known. 9 + 1+ 1 = 11



    6) The date is equal to the US emergency services telephone number 911. 9 + 1 + 1 = 11.



    Sheer coincidence..?! Read on and make up your own mind:
    1) The total number of victims inside all the hi-jacked planes was 254. 2 + 5 + 4 = 11.



    2) September 11 is day number 254 of the calendar year. Again 2 + 5 + 4 = 11.



    3) The Madrid bombing took place on 3/11/2004. 3 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 4 = 11.



    4) The tragedy of Madrid happened 911 days after the Twin Towers incident.



    Sheer coincidence..?! Read on and make up your own mind:
    Now this is where things get totally eerie:



    The most recognised symbol for the US, after the Stars & Stripes, is the Eagle. The following verse is taken from the Quran, the Islamic holy book:

    "For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome Eagle. The wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the lands of Allah and lo, while some of the people trembled in despair still more rejoiced: for the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah and there was peace."



    That verse is number 9.11 of the Quran.



    Still uncovinced about all of this..?! Try this and see how you feel afterwards, it made my hair stand on end:


    Open Microsoft Word and do the following(TRY THIS FOR REAL) ... ps it works no joke.



    1. Type in capitals Q33 NY. This is the flight number of the first

    plane to hit one of the Twin Towers.



    2. Highlight the Q33 NY



    3. Change the font size to 48.



    4. Change the actual font to the WINGDINGS (There's 3 of them, try them all.)

    The problem is that you're picking out the similarities that support your hypothesis while ignoring the misses. This is similar to the way a form of 'cold reading' called 'shot gunning' allows 'psychics' to gain believers. The last part is debunked by Snopes.

    He just forwarded it to me and I copy and pasted. I haven't a clue as to what to do with that wingding thing!

    From Penn Jillette's retort to the original story about which the Wingdings part derives:

    These types of things are everywhere, and almost every time, they are purely coincidence. There's a term for it, arithmography, and the most famous examples of it involve various people assigning numbers to other (usually famous) people's names in order to result in the sum 666, the mark of the beast. The phenomenon has been thoroughly pondered and it turns out that it's not hard to manipulate any string of symbols into any conspiracy-related number with careful choice of encoding schemes.

    PS - Check the links above: Q33NY wasn't the number of anything related to the incident.

    The number 11 hates America!

    We should change our numbering system to ... 8, 9, 10, freedom, 12, 13, 14...
