We all know and respect the 11th of November as Remembrance Day, the day when we honour those brave servicemen and women who gave their lives defending our country. This year, the 11th of November falls in the 11th year of the century. 11/11/11. The first century of every thousand years is the only time we really have licence to shorten the year to the last two digits. In a hundred years time, 2111, it just seems wrong that we would abbreviate the year to 11.
So to celebrate this momentous once in a millennia occasion, CartridgeMonkey have decided to bring you 11 interesting facts about the number 11.
