Timing It Right With The Lucky Number 8

Watch face with lucky time of 8:08

I've just realised a coincidence with the Beijing Olympic Games of 2008 - or was it manipulated this way? Some of it maybe.

The Beijing Games officially began at 8 minutes past 8 pm on the 8th day of the 8th month in 2008.

That's a whole lot of number 8s.

Of course 8 is considered a lucky number in China, associated with prosperity and confidence in their culture. Looks like they were making sure that everything went well.

Timing can change everything in life.

  1. I'm pretty sure that the Chinese did that on purpose.As they say it's pretty auspicious.

  2. Very cool. How can a repressive regime like China have mystical stuff like this and the I Ching. That's the bottom line dichotomy for me and china.
