when I was 7 years old [and my older sister was 11] I visited my first 7-11 place. :star: there has got to be some kind of significance for that. :bounce:

Yes, the Southern Hempisphere. "7/11/2015" is to us the day, then month, then year. It doesn't make sense to put the month first, then the day, and then the year. That is not logical.

Wow, apparently this is one contribution Texas actually made...ha ha ha.


in Colorado 7-11 could be called 'stoner central' I mean where do you figure we get all our munchies...I mean they even have 5 dollar pizza that cooks in less than 5 minutes=stoner heaven.

7-11 is my go-to convenience store, part of it though is that is the closest convenience store to my house.
