Fun with maths

I got sent this in one of those forwarding things this morning:

The Secret behind the number 11

Pretty Chilling - read to the bottom.  Try it out.  
If you are a sceptical person - still read on as it's actually very interesting!!
This is actually really freaky!! (Mainly the end part, but read it all first)

1) New York City has 11 letters
2) Afghanistan has 11 letters.
3) Ramsin Yuseb has 11 letters. (The terrorist who threatened to destroy the Twin Towers in 1993)
4) George W Bush has 11 letters.  
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.
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.

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.  
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.

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.

Unconvinced about all of this still ..?  

Try this and see how you feel afterwards, it made my hair stand on end:  

Please do the following:

1. Highlight the Q33 NY. This is the flight number of the first plane to hit one of the Twin Towers.
2. Change the font size to 48.
4. Change the actual font to WINGDINGS……………………
What do you think now???? 

Send this to as many people as you know and in 11 minutes you will get a nice surprise, if you don't you will get the shock of your life in 11 min.

This arrived at 11:27. It's now 12:22, which is 55 minutes later. That's 11 x 5. It took me 5 minutes to read it. SPOOOOOKKKYYYY!!!

(i haven't had anything shocking happen to me yet. unless you count someone sending me a link to an article about licking toads).

My conclusion? Somebody needs to get out more. Also, go back to the bit where it tells you to use the wingdings. Look at the numbering on the side. And tell me whether you trust this person to get their maths right. Then go and have a look at the Wikipedia page on 9/11 - with specific reference to the flight numbers, and tell me if you believe anything else this person is telling you.

Does it make me a bad person that I replied with a link to Snopes?
