Why does 2011 hate me?
Let’s see what the numbers say.

2011 → 2+0+1+1 = 4.

With “A” = 1, “B” = 2, “C” = 3, etc., “BoogieMonster” → 2+15+15+7+9+5+13+15+14+19+20+5+18 = 157 → 1+5+7 = 13 → 1+3 = 4.

Well, there’s your problem right there.  The answers are both 4, which means you’re in a temporal-nominal alignment year that is not a 3 or an 8.  The 3 or 8 temporal-nominal alignments are especially fortuitous.  Just ask the Chinese.  Everything is the same in an alignment year (but not a 3 or 8 one) as every other year, only twice as hard.  I suggest appending a “D” to your name and hibernating until 2015.

4? no wonder!

It is death in Korean (sa=4 and sa=death - they don't have fourth floors over there, don't ask me how they still build so high) and clearly 2011 can only go downhill for BoogieM.

I suggest he sits this year out and rejoin us next year, 2012, which will be equally bad for all of us across the board as it is most definitely and finally the End.

Oh crap! Just moved into unit 42! I thought this was a GOOD omen.

But then 2 is 1/2 of 4, so maybe things will turn by half of the year.

A lowercase “D” would’ve been fine.  Circumspection is wise.  The muses are sensitive and might construe uppercase as pushy – you know, too much in-your-face emphasis.  In fact, reduce the typeface size as a matter of humility and deference just to be safe.  Then again, they may see that as a ruse.  Such are the vagaries of the fates.  You can’t fool or cheat them.  Sincerity is key.

But now that you’ve reinvented yourself as an 8 and the year is a 4, I have more disturbing news.  See, you’ll have to suffer five times the hardship (because 5 × 8 = 40 → 4+0 = 4) to match the year 2011.  On the other hand, there’s a slim possibility that it’ll only be half as hard from here on in (because ½ × 8 = 4).  The numbers do not reveal this aspect clearly.  For that I’ll need to know all of your telephone numbers and your shoe size (UK, not US).

All in all, hibernation ’til 2015 may still be your safest bet.  Whatever you do, don’t consult another numerologist, even if it means forcing your feet into a size 8 (UK, not US).  Those swindlers are No. 2 and don’t know what they’re adding up to.

Oh wow! You are TOTALLY right! My uppercase D angered Zues, and as a result my house took a direct bolt of lightning on Sunday.

Hmm, sunday, 7, 6 * 7 = 42, where I have currently have 6 months of bad luck. But then 2015, 15, 1+5 also = 6. So that may not help.

But then perhaps by July I'll have so much positive karma after all the shit hitting me right now I'll win the lottery.

I may need help picking numbers, 42 is off my list though, as is 6 and 7, and 4 and 8. Oh and 20, 15.

Heyyyy, perhaps what I need is some WHITE wicca MAGICKS!

try the purple, you might get more sex. THAT is, if your S/O is at all attuned to your frustrated mood, she might not care though, but thats the nature of taking chances.

Measured up the dining/lounge floor area this weekend and it came to 42m/sq
and the ceiling panel width was 42cm. I too, had a 42ish weekend.

When will we start learning from others' mistakes?

If you get a flu shot and display some of the typical symptoms a day after, can you transmit it to others?

The flu or the vaccine? Maybe one can hire oneself out?
