### This is sooo wrong

On multiple levels-
I got this *11* thing in my mail today (or last week? It's one of those extra mailboxes).

I don't know ALL of what's wrong with it but my BS detector is going off right now.
I'll paste it and add my two cents as we go.

Subject: Fwd: Number 11

Try this, Coincidence? make up your own mind.

The Secret behind the number 11 -

Read to the bottom. Try it out. It is unreal.

If you are a sceptical person - still read on as it's actually very
interesting!!

1) New York City has 11 letters [But it's official name is New York, New York= 14 *OR* Da City= 6]
2) Afghanistan has 11 letters. [Ok, I'm sure lots of _____stans have 11 letters, too]
3) Ramsin Yuseb has 11 letters. (The terrorist who threatened to destroy
the Twin Towers in 1993)[BUT- it depends on how you spell it]
4) George W Bush has 11 letters. [And *W* only has one]

This could be a mere coincidence, but this gets interesting:
1) New York is the 11th state.
2) The first plane crashing against the Twin Towers was flight number 11.[Remember this flight number]
3) Flight 11 was carrying 92 passengers. 9 + 2 = 11 [does that include the hijackers? If the hijackers weren't counted, the number wouldn't BE 11, would it?]
4) Flight 77 which also hit Twin Towers, was carrying 65 passengers. 6+5 =
11 [ditto the above. And if that didn't work, we can always add the flight crew -as needed]
5) The tragedy was on September 11, or 9/11 as it is now known. 9 + 1+ 1 =11[and 9 x1 x1=9, so?]
6) The date is equal to the US emergency services telephone number 911.
9 + 1 + 1 = 11

1) The total number of victims inside all the hi-jacked planes was 254.

2 + 5 + 4 = 11. [So are we including the flight crew this time? What about the hijackers?]
2) September 11 is day number 254 of the calendar year.[OUR calender- islamists use a different one]

Again 2 + 5 + 4 = 11. [OR 2 x5 x4= 40]
3) The Madrid bombing took place on 3/11/2004. 3 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 4 = 11.[more number manipulation fun]
4) The tragedy of Madrid happened 911 days after the Twin Towers incident.

Now this is where things get totally eerie:

The most recognized symbol for the US, after the Stars & Stripes, is the
Eagle. The following verse is taken from the Koran, 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 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 Koran. [Of WHICH version?]

Unconvinced about all of this Still ..?!

Try this and see how you feel afterwards, it made my hair stand on end:
Open Microsoft Word and do the following:
1. Type in capitals Q33 NY. This is the flight number of the first plane to
hit one of the Twin Towers. [Remember the flight number I told you to remember? It was 11]
2. Highlight the Q33 NY.
3. Change the font size to 48.
4. Change the actual font to the WINGDINGS 1
What do you think now?!!

I think it's as big a stretch as someone wasting an entire day trying to figure out how to fold a \$5 bill to somewhat resemble the twin towers.
