The kid was probably born at 8:09 but the doctors thought it would be cuter to put down 8:08... happens all the time with new years babies, etc..

I don't think its that weird, thousands of babies are born every day, all around the world, at many different time intervals, why not 8/08/08 @ 8:08, I do find it special however, in a cool sort of way.

Which is the reason horoscopes aren't always right, right?   grin

Josh:

Good post Josh, nice replies too. I was born on 8-5-58 the time though was about 2am - ugh. You think my mom could have hung out just another 6 hours, but NOOOOOOOOO!  tongue

As far as horoscopes go, I made it a habit to wait until the NEXT DAY then read them and see if they were right - doing it the normal way can subconsciously make decisions that reflect the horoscope if you are a believer.

My general out come, I believe they are TOO GENERAL, I do believe in all the ways we determine events, like planetary alignments, both astrology and astronomical events, I don't know about biorhythms but I do know I'm a LEO, naturally bullheaded and an "A-Type" personality. My wife is my ideal mate (astrologically speaking) and we balance each other out.

Everything is a push and a pull in our Universe - always trying to level and balance itself out - these ripples of ever moving planets, solar systems, galaxies and the Universe as a whole effects everything in ways we can only hope to understand.

If the color of a room can change stress levels in people, or if particular smells can bring back suppressed memories, and if full moons can bring out the nut-job in some people, then the mind is truly a Universe of it's own.

Lastly, the other day I was at work, the janitorial people replaced the soap in our dispensers with something different - the smell triggered an immediate image of me sitting on my Dad's lap, at a very young age (like 3 or 4) sitting om my Grandmother's couch. What is weird, I really have no memories to speak of before the age of 5 and few of them through the age of 8 or 9. Our olfactory is truly an early part of the human brain and digs up stuff that no other method can. It was interesting to see a flash from a past I don't remember, but that smell of soap must have been very close to something I smelled that dug-up that memory.

On the local news they told of another one in Rockford, ILL. What do they do up in that part of the country  huh

But they didn't mention the weight of this one.

We had one here in the Seattle area, born at 8:08 on 8/8/08 and weighed 8 lbs.   Wonder what was so romantic post Halloween 2007 to cause all the stir?
