September 11 weird facts

Posted by Lifecruiser in Odditys

I remember hearing the news about the airplanes crashing into the twin towers. Finding it very shocking and hard to believe. Seeing it repeated on every news report made me believe it though.

I can imagine the feeling of the people that saw it in real life. I’ve seen one airplane crash on short distance in my life. That was during the flight show with the Swedish military plane JAS 39 Gripen over Stockholm city 1993.

You’re standing there thinking that surely this can’t be true - it must be some trick or something - but you’re seeing it with your own eyes…

That time it was a miracle that the pilot shot himself out of there and no one else got injured when the airplane crashed and burned.

It wasn’t the same miracle the 11th of September. No wonder people over the whole world where chocked, suicide missions like that is just impossible to grasp and especially with so many innocent victims.

I can not and I will not imagine what the victims felt, because that would be too much to bear…

This horrible date will be ingraved deeply in our hearts and the history for ever.

Strange and scary facts of 11…

Test the following instructions and read the text carefully, it gets really strange towards the end!

1) New York City has 11 letters
2) Afghanistan has 11 letters
3) Ramsin Yuseb (The terrorist that planned the attack against Twin Towers 1993) has 11 letters
4) George W Bush has 11 letters

These can seem to be pure coincidences, but it gets even more intresting further down in the text:

1. New York is the 11th state
2. Airplane 11 had 92 passengers ( 9 + 2 = 11)
3. Airplane number 77 which also crashed into Twin Towers, had 65 passengers (6 + 5 =11)
4. The tragedy happened 11th of September, or also known as 9/11 ( 9 + 1 + 1=11)
5. As you know “US emergency services” phonenumber is 911 (9 + 1 + 1=11)

Continued coincidences? Read further!

1) Total number of victims on airplanes that crashed where 254 ( 2 + 5 + 4 = 11)
2) 11th of September is the 254th day of the year ( 2 + 5 + 4= 11)
3) The Bombing in Madrid happened 3.11.2004 ( 3 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 0 + 0 + 4 =11)
4) The tragedy in Madrid happened 911 days after the Twin Towers tragedy.

Now something even more strange:

The most wellknown symbol from USA, after the Stars & Stripes, is the eagle.

The following verse is cut from Islams most holy book, the Koran:

“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 and 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 was verse number 9.11 in the Koran.

Do you still believe that it’s a pure coincidence? Test this and see what you think then:

Open Microsoft Word and do the following:

1. Write with big letters: Q33 NY. This is the number on the first airplane that crashed into the Twin Towers
2. Mark Q33 NY
3. Change size to 48
4. Change typeface to WINDINGS (or WINDINGS 1)


Disclaimer: These weird facts is something I recieved in an email, I don’t guarantee that everything is true, but never the less, it is weird facts…

This is probably a good example of how certain information starts to circulate around the world by email. I suspected that the Koran verse were wrong, but didn’t know how to check it up quickly and the comment from Firda confirm that it’s NOT verse 9.11 in the Koran.

Any one else that can proof something else wrong?

    FYI, the following is verse number 9.11 in the Koran:

    [9.11] But if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, they are your brethren in faith; and We make the communications clear for a people who know.


    Lifecruiser: Great Firda! I suspected that one to be wrong, but didn’t know any way to check it up quickly. Thanks for your help :-)

    Obviously too much time on your hands. Especially on that last one, heh.

    Lifecruiser: Actually, it was quite the opposite…. *lol* I was in a hurry, so I hadn’t time enough to check all facts up like I wanted too :-)

    Hi Mrs. L. I am doing my morning blogging making my rounds to say hi. Sadly I am one american who is just wanting to retreat and hide today. The blog-o-sphere is full of such saddness. Yes there are wonderful tributes to the loss of so many but there is also so much sadness to read. Can’t turn on the television because all the news is reshowing the horror of that day! I think I am going to find a good book to read, play some soothing calming music and reflect on the good of this earth, not the sad memory of the bad that happened!

    Your oddities are really something. Some of them I have seen before. Some were new!

    Hope you and the Mr.L are have a great day!

    Lifecruiser: I can agree on that one, it can be too much of the sadness sometimes. Maybe it’s because somehow, it seems always to be easier for the human mind to relate to the sad things than to the joyful. Very strange though! You’re doing the right thing taking care of yourself this day, that’s a kind of celebration of life :-) I’ll pop over to you soon!

    I just want to say to you that I deeply appreciate so much that you posted such a great tribute about 9/11
    and that I find that the facts you listed are weird but interesting too.

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Chi, I’ll pop over to you soon too :-)

    Well I still believe it was a coincidence. People tend to search magical meanings or something that could explain something. We don’t want to face the fact that such things happen beacuse of no reason (the reason of fighting with American imperialism is still no reason, right?) And sure this 11 thing is a little bit strange, but the question is: why 11? There is nothing special in this number.
    So it was a sad sad coincidence.

    Lifecruiser: I don’t know what it was, except from sad, I can’t think like a suicider… For me, it could as well have been an alien!

    Yes, for me too. :(( I don’t get it and I never will.

    I am still in shock by the September 11th attacks on our country. Tears still form in my eyes when I hear about all the people who had no way out of the WTC and began to jump from the skyscraper’s highest levels. I still get that feeling in my stomach when I see the pictures of the victims of the attacks, and they are smiling and enjoying their family members. I feel that they died before time, but their deaths were certainly not invain. As far as the coincidences, I feel that some are true, and some are exaggerated. Of course some people will make a mountain out of a mole hill.

    Lifecruiser: Just that one, the jumps from the tower, is the worst desperation for me to think about… ;-(
