Today is 11/11/11! What are the odds?

So where did the word "eleven" come from anyway? Turns out it comes from our friends, the Jews. Originally, the word was "unleavened". According to Jewish tradition, any bread you consume on the ides of the month must be unleavened (no flour), or the angel of death will come and take your babies. Eventually, this "unleavened day" lent its name to its place on the calendar.

Every moment you get is a gift. Spend it on things that matter. Don’t spend it by dwelling on unhappy things
