Lucky 27

July 5th, 2012 by Kennedy

We all know that lucky numbers don’t really exist….do they?  It is all a load of stuff and nonsense that allows unscrupulous entertainers with blonde (very blonde – what do you mean out of a bottle) hair to make a living.  Well, perhaps we need to think again a little bit.  We’ve all got a hex number that makes the heart flutter just that bit faster whether it’s for good or not so good reason but what about the mathematicians – surely they’d tell us it’s all rubbish.

Lucky Number Theory

Now, trying not to yawn, or send you to sleep, I’ll get this over and done with ASAP but 1, 3, 7, 9, 13, 15, 21……wake up, stay with me……are part of series of numbers identified in 1955 by a bunch of maths academics who needed a name for this series of numbers.  No idea why, but they just called them Lucky Numbers – for real, and they were being paid for the work!  Either way we still come back to the same idea there’s no such thing as a lucky number.

Yes, But Tell That To…..

….a certain bunch of well known people for whom 27 is very special.  What about 27?  I bet very few of you would say you’d have 27 as a lucky number – go on put your hands up and I’ll count them.  See, only three of you, that’s lucky.

But 27 does have something odd about it.  Look at this….

Louis Chauvin – 1908, Nat Jaffe – 1945, Brian Jones – 1969…..make any sense yet?

Jimi Hendrix – 1970, Janis Joplin – 1970 and Amy Winehouse – 2011.  All musicians cut down in their prime and all of them dying when they were – you guessed it – 27 years old.

Now, the list of famous musicians who died at the age of 27 is longer than you’d think, actually 45 of them with Louis Chauvin, a famous St Louis ragtime musician dying in 1908 at the head of the list.  Think about it that’s almost 1 every two years since then.

Rumour has it that legendary blues guitarist Robert Johnson made a deal with the devil.  In return for a well tuned guitar he gave his life at 27….now didn’t Oscar Wilde write something similar?

So is there something odd here or is it linked to bunch of spirited youngsters burning the candle at both ends?  I think so, after all, what could be special about 27…..

27 – the number of grains on Buddhist rosary, there are 27 channels for communicating with God in Kabala, there are 27 countries in the EU, the moon takes 27 days to orbit the earth and my favourite, in feng shui the word is to put 27 coins in your home to get rich quick!

Now where’s that book on Nostradamus….

Kennedy was very professional, really entertaining and completely different to what we have booked in the past in terms of an after dinner speaker and entertainment. The performance amazed the whole audience and really lifted the spirits in the entire room in time for our formal proceedings.I would definitely recommend Kennedy to anyone looking for corporate entertainment.

What a fantastic night’s entertainment Mind of Kennedy provided. Some of the stuff he did is still being talked about at our company days after! Make sure you book him for your corporate event; you won’t be disappointed!

(Feedback about our ruby wedding party last night) – Kennedy was absolutely fantastic. Not only did he work the room really well, and include people from different parts of the room, which is so important, but also he was an absolute delight to work with before, during and after the event... no trouble at all and completely accommodating. The act was tremendous and I love the idea that all our guests are sitting at home today over the Sunday papers, saying "how did he do that?!" I would have no hesitation in recommending Kennedy to anyone I know. Best wishes and thanks again to Kennedy for entertaining all our guests so well at our party. Jane & Pete Bradshaw

Great to see #lesmiserables today. Some of the best cast in a few years. Although I thought Javert was quite poor today. Brilliant show!

Quick #nandos before #LesMiserables matinee with @theroberttemple

What a night! Fantastic performances all round at #42ndstreet #london #theatre

So I went to the record shop and I said "What have you got by The Doors?" He said: "A bucket of sand and a fire blanket!" - Tim Vine
