  5. On any date you choose:

    If the square root of 27 is the length opposite the 60 degree angle of a 30/60/90 right triangle, then the hypotenuse is 6.

    Possibly useful for SCCA GCR-driven FF designs :)

  9. I have tried to chalk the strangeness of this number up to being pure coincidence, but there is no way. There is something about it.

    My first experience with it was when I met "The One" when I was just 14. We began a relationship on 4/27. A few years later we broke up on 1/27. Later that year I started dating someone new, on 11/16 (1+1=2, 1+6=7), his birthday was the day me and my ex broke up, 1/27. My ex also got a new girlfriend a few years later, her birthday was our anniversary, 4/27.

    Job interviews, car accidents, moving, any major life changes all happen on the 27th.

    I was once telling a friend about all of this and he thought I was insane, until a bus drove in front of us with a big "27" plastered to the side of it, and the song we were listening to suddenly paused and a voice said "twenty seven" in the middle of the song (turns out it's just part of the song but I seriously expected to die right there).

  10. Miami Heat 27 game win streak ended on March 27th. Lebron averaged 27 points during the streak and the largest comeback win was from 27 down. Lebron didn't win his first championship until 2012 at the age of 27, winning the league MVP that year averaging 27.1 point per game.

  11. What do people think about electromagnetic waves and the number 27 prevalence ? Anything ? If emf disrupts birds insects and fish why not us ? And if yes - is it an accident ie; a side affect or something more sinister?

  13. Honestly, if you look into a number hard enough, you'll find a few relationships.
    However, this is funny because my birthday is on a 27th.

  14. Yes it's everywhere. Nelson Mandela in jail for 27 years. I see it EVERYWHERE. I wonder if anyone if you noticed the licence plate of JFK's car? I saw it on a news programme talking about the anniversary. The middle 4 digits are 27 10. My birthday. Only 9999-1. I expected to see it. That's why I looked. It's everywhere. Why?

  15. Im 34 now, but i almost died at 27. Gave birth to my daughter, couple days later nurses tripped out on how low my blood pressure was. A kidney stone blocked my ureter, my system backed up, caused sepsis & caused my heart to sruggle and enlarge. Many prayers later, God is good. And he gave me amazing doctors.
