Oh Snap! And the Nines Have It

Were you aware that it is 9/9/09? Even if you're not, tens of thousands of Chinese couples will remember for you. They're all racing to get married today, because the number nine is supposed to be lucky. (In Chinese, the word for nine sounds a lot like the word for "forever.") And in Vegas, where nine doesn't sound like forever but some couples are getting married anyway? Maybe they just like the look of 9/9/09.
