It's common knowledge that everyone's favorite number is 32,867. But 9 comes a close second. And that's because of its magical powers.
Reciting "Bloody Mary" 9 times in front of a mirror will not only make Bloody Mary appear in the mirror, but her accountant and lawyer besides. Counting from 9 backwards to 1 not only qualifies for a NASA job, it will help you pass a field sobriety test. Wearing 9 pairs of socks with 9 pairs of shoes simultaneously will bring you great luck, since you won't be able to make it out of the house to get into any trouble. And 9 years of age is the perfect time, with the ability to get yourself into lots of trouble yet unchargeable as an adult for any crime you may commit.
