I've Seen This Elsewhere... [UPDATED x2]

...but I had to work it out myself to be sure. It's true: the attacks in Spain on 3/11 came 2 and 1/2 years, to the day, after 9/11; further, they came exactly 911 days after 9/11.

I'm not sure what to make of it, but it can't be denied.

[HatTip to Being American.]

Whoops! Actually, the attacks came 912 days after 9/11 - I forgot that we're in a leap year. It's still 2 and 1/2 years between attacks.

Well, there may have been something to those numbers after all. Turns out, I was just thinking about things the wrong way. Power Line reports:
Daniel Aronstein has been trying to work himself inside the mind of al Qaeda by treating it as a psychopathic serial killer. Aronstein originally alerted Hugh Hewitt to the 911 days between the 9/11 attack on America and the 3/11 Madrid massacre. He continues to analyze the numerological pattern behind al Qaeda attacks. Here's Aronstein's computation of the 911 days and related numerological analysis:
If one start the count on 9/12/01 (day one) then 3/10/04 was day 911, meaning there were 911 days BETWEEN the attacks.

365 days (2002)
+ 365 (2003)
+ 19 (remainder of sept 01)
+ 31 (oct 01)
+ 30 (nov 01)
+ 31 (dec 01)
+ 31 (jan 04)
+ 29 (feb 04)
+ 10 (days in march 04 w/no attck)
So I misunderstood. It's not 911 days from 9/11 to 3/11, it's 911 days inbetween the two dates. What this may mean is anyone's guess (and Power Line links to some discussion), but my earlier correction of my earlier post was correct, but I still didn't fully grasp what was being discussed. Ah well - assuming no further corrections, this is the way it is.
