08.08.08

08/08/08

If you are Chinese, you know today is the luckiest day of the century.

(Well, if you are one of those arrogant native English speakers, it is understandable that you might hate the idea eight (8) is a lucky number.)

Like many other people, I will be watching the Olympic opening ceremony tonight. On the Sony Bravia LCD TV. For the first time in Australia, Olympic Games will be broadcast in high definition.

Happy 08.08.08!

Why would I hate the idea that eight is a lucky number?

Ant doesn't actually mean "hate", he just thinks that Caucasians have no deep seeded cultural links to numbers.
However, he forgets 666 and 13...LOL!

Pray allow me to explain.
Some arrogant native English speakers consider anything Chinese or Asian is automatically inferior. Including all the traditions/cultures/believes, such as the lucky number 8.
(Note the keyword "arrogant")
