The Meanings of Numbers From 21 To 30
21 – This is the drinking age across most of the United States of America. Yee-haw! 21 grams is the weight of the soul, according to some research that is generally considered to be absolutely meaningless and without merit – so.. there’s that too.
22 – There’s a Jay-Z song in which he rhymes the words “two”, “too” and “to” 22 times. If hearing Jay-Z say two a bunch of times makes you feel lucky, look no further than 22 as your ultimate luckiest number.
23 – The 23 Enigma is a belief that most events that happen are somehow connected to the number 23. Perhaps you have heard of the Jim Carrey movie called The Number 23 that deals with a man who becomes obsessed. If so, then you can’t you haven’t been warned about obsessing over this number!
24 – There are twenty four hours in a day, but they seem to pass a lot faster when you’re on a winning (or losing) streak. I wonder why that is?
25 – The Book of Revelation said that there were 25 thrones.
26 – There are 26 red cards and 26 black cards in a regular deck of cards. Red and black, sound familiar? Some people will actually use a deck of cards to help them choose which color to wager on in roulette.
27 – European roulette is a popular version of the game that features a single zero, rather than a double zero. Why does this matter? There are 27 countries in the European union, so could this number be lucky for someone who’s playing European roulette?
28 – The atomic mass of silicon is 28. We’ve all seen our share of silicon sitting around the roulette tables, especially in Las Vegas, and it’s often there as a form of good luck charm it seems, so take from that what you will!
29 – Tom Waits sings songs about people who are down on their luck, and just so happens to have a song called “$29.00”.
30 – Thirty minutes, half an hour, the length of the average mind-numbing sitcom and also the amount of silver ounces that it took to convince Judas to betray Jesus in the Bible. It’s up to you to decide if this number will betray you, or lead you to silver and gold.
