I’m personally not big on numerology, but:
2+0+0+8 = 10
And according to Larry Niven’s The Mote in God’s Eye (released in the 70’s), there are nice things on the horizon for 2008:
Here’s an excerpt:
1969 – Neil Armstrong sets foot on Earth’s Moon.
1990 – Series of treaties between United States and Soviet Union creates the CoDominion.
2008 – First successful interstellar drive tested. Alderson Drive perfected.
So let’s hope Niven was right and 2008 really does become a perfect 10 for most of us!
