Ah, the Chinese... the least religious people in the world, but by far the most superstitious.

Good friends of mine got married on 8/8/98. They have their 10th anniversary next year.

MasterThief: Ah, the Chinese... the least religious people in the world, but by far the most superstitious.

Also, the Large Hardon Collider goes on-line tonight at midnight.

Seems more than just the Chinese have a thing for 8's.

/and I stayed at a Super 8 Motel last night, so I'm getting yada yada yada...

Its just a number.
I never understood why people freak out so much over what day to get married.
 
2008-08-07 10:27:35 AM  
LOL your superstition, it makes me chuckle.
 
2008-08-07 10:27:42 AM  
Oh, do stay away from anything with a 4 in it. It sounds like the the word for death...so it's unlucky...

/Cantonese relatives. Ai ya.

Lucky...for divorce lawyers.

8 isn't a lucky number.

are these people who couldn't get married on 7/7/07 so they're just making up that 8 is lucky?

/8 is the new 7
 
2008-08-07 10:30:40 AM  
I'm getting married tomorrow, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies.
 
2008-08-07 10:30:55 AM  
The number 8 is lucky in Japan, 7 is considered highly unlucky. 8 is close to the symbol for infinity as well, but yeah, it's all just superstitious.
 
2008-08-07 10:32:21 AM  
Why is 6 afraid of 7?

Because 789!

We should also shave our beards and wear cotton-polyester blend with a wool sweater as it too is an abomination unto the lord
 
2008-08-07 10:33:55 AM  
So to be lucky we should all get married tomorrow?

We'll see this article again on...
9/9/09
10/10/10
11/11/11
12/12/12.
 
2008-08-07 10:35:06 AM  
8/8/08 is my 33rd birthday.
8/8/88 was my 13th birthday.

Getting old sucks, doing it sober is worse.
 
2008-08-07 10:36:34 AM  
Next year there will be a story about 9/9/09, then 10/10/10, 11/11/11 and 12/12/12. Then they'll move on to 11/12/13 and 12/13/14. I have those newspaper stories already written so if anyone wants to buy them and have them on file, just let me know. Can I get the greenlights approved for those upcoming stories?

/someone should write a book...

Basing your marriage on luck and superstition. Brilliant!

hollahollaholz: Its just a number.

Not only that, but it's an arbitrary number. It's not like we know when the beginning of time was. So, the calender obviously doesn't reflect any real point in time. Plus, our Julian calendar is only one of many calendars still in use today. The Muslims, Jews, and countless others have ones that are thousands of years older than ours.

//Ours is still best.
//That's why the whole world uses it.
//Well, the civilized world.
 
2008-08-07 10:39:34 AM  
Personally, I've always found that I have the best luck on the 13th of the month, especially Friday the 13th. I have no idea why. Looks like we get 2 in a row next year (Feb and Mar), and we also get November.

You better not mess up my birthday this weekend with your merriment, birdseed, crinoline and room stopping "special moments".

/ Kind of bitter *Grumble grumble*

Interestingly, August 7 (western calendar) is 7/7 (chinese calendar) or Qi Xi, which is sort of like Valentine's day. So... valentines' day, then get married the next day... I wonder if there'll be another wave of marriages in ~29 days on 8/8 (chinese calendar).
 
2008-08-07 10:42:08 AM  
I'm considering 8/8/08 lucky because I still won't be married by the end of it.

That headline was greight. However, I heighted the story. Other than when they first connsumeight the marriage, the guy will have to masturbeight now that the deal is sealed. I can steight with certainty that the wife will not felleight.

Exactly. I don't get it. Women spend weeks crying and thinking about the date and it just makes me wonder why. No one cares about the number you have.
 
2008-08-07 10:43:32 AM  
I am in the wedding industry, kick, replies.

Yes we will see this article again for 9/9/9 and on....

Busy weekend.

Wish me luck.

Well yes, but why does getting married on the 12 seem better than the 11, for example?
 
2008-08-07 10:45:03 AM  
I got married on 6/4/06. It makes it easy to remember, just 2 days shy of 6/6/06. 6/6/06 was a Tuesday, and who wants to get married on a Tuesday?
 
2008-08-07 10:45:49 AM  
I can't wait until we get past 12/12/12, then I'll never have to read this article again.

I think that every year they just take the original article and do a find and replace on the date (01/01/01->02/02/02, etc) and then re-publish.

FTFA: Sally Faubion, a professional numerologist in San Francisco, said it is not uncommon for people to "go nuts" over a date.

I would like a date with Grace Park please, so I can show her my nuts.

/and feel her up

Step 1. Kill two people
Step 2. 4 + 4 = 8
Step 3. Profit?

I read the first sentence and didn't give a fark. Been married twice. Fark doing it again. I won't go to a wedding or say congrats to anybody for getting married. It's all a ploy for women to stop having sex with you and take half or you shiat.

/not bitter
//yes I am
///pray for my ex every day.....to get breast cancer
 
2008-08-07 10:47:14 AM  
Tell me when someone gets married on 13/13/13, that'd be more interesting.

If anything, the guy should care more. Not about the date being significant, but the date should be easy to remember.

Exactly. Two of my boys have weddings coming up (October and March) and not a second
of thought went into wondering if the date was made up of good numbers or bad numbers.
It was more of a "when's the place we want for the reception available" thing.

Exactly. But if the girl can't get the church booked for the day SHE HAS TO HAVE the whole wedding is RUINED.
