There is no significance when you factor in that we humans created the calendar and clocks. Now if you took the actual date starting from the big bang and you used a more reasonable time (like 100 seconds per minute, 100 minutes per hour, and 10 or 100 hours per day), then it's less significant.

Who actually thought of putting in 60 seconds to a minute to begin with anyway?

For those of you thinking about timezones need a 24 hour clock, that's not true either. I believe we should all use the same time regardless where you live on earth. If that causes your to start your day at 3:00 am, so be it. What do you think they do on the International Space Station? Change their time zone 24 times every 90 minutes?

Also, what time would you have logged if that baby was born on Mars? Their days are different than ours but that planet is still within our own universe, dimension, and time plane.

And to go on, the 8 pounds 9 ounces is 3883.88 grams.

So really, if you want, you can make any fact look however you want depending on what measurement standards you use. There is no significance to these numbers other than they are weights measured in pounds/ounces and the date measured in days divided by 24 hour portions and further divided by 60 portions.

@cengland0: Why tens? Isn't that based on human digits (ten fingers)?

@moondrake: Yes, since we are humans with 10 digits (8 real fingers and 2 thumbs), 10's is a good base to use in our numbering system. Suppose if we evolved with 16 fingers (8 on each hand), then hexadecimal would be more common place :)

I think this woman will predict the end of the world a heck of a lot better than the Mayan calendar

I like numbers. They make it easier to count.

@mkentosh: one thing that I read was that the father was getting ready to go play the lotto after he finished the interview! :)

I thought the older brother was born on 8-9-10, not 2011.

I just appreciate that it was not her due date, she was in "labor" for 3 days, and it was not c-section. Usually the "I have several kids with odd birth dates" are planned c-sections.
