7

The number. It’s the number of notes in the musical scale, colors in the rainbow, number of days in a week. It is said that God took rest on the seventh day after creating this world. It’s the number of the deadly sins which human race should not succumb to. When rolling two standard six-sided dice, you are statistically more likely to roll a seven than any other number. It’s on 7th of some month that the ESPN Sports channel was launched. Seven is considered a lucky number in many western cultures. I am not sure the actual reason for 7 being considered a lucky number. But definitely September 7, 1998 was definitely a lucky day for everyone on the WWW. That was Google’s official founding date. Did you know that September was the seventh month of the Roman calendar until 153 BC?

Google celebrates its 7th birthday this September.

Happy Birthday Google!!!

Here is some thing real fun, have a look at the holiday logos of Google, which you see time and again in the google page.

PS: - Did anyone say that the individual digits of the year Google was launched adds up to 7.

7 is the lucky number, but for scientist, 8 might be the lucky number. I wonder why numbers play an important role in mysticism and all. Did the Death study mathematics to make 13, 4 and sometimes 8, and 666 the very unlucky numbers?
