8-8-08


An auspicious date for Chinese. The number 8 (in Chinese) sounds like the word for "luck" (in Chinese). So, anything having to do with the number 8 is very lucky.

That is why they chose to begin the Olympics today in Beijing.

China thinks it's lucky. Anyone who disagrees with them, however, will find that their luck has run out.
