It’s 10/11/12! Let’s Celebrate By Counting Together

Feist Sesame Street

Today is October 11, 2012. It is the 284th day of the year, and according to Wikipedia (and, you know, math) there are 81 more days until we ring in 2013. On this day in 1890, the Daughters of the American Revolution were founded in Washington DC. In 1910, Theodore Roosevelt (who just so happens to be my cousin a few times removed) became the first U.S. president to fly in an airplane. In 1975, Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham tied the knot. Also in 1975, Bruce Springsteen scored a massive hit with “Born to Run.” And in 2012, Weyland Corp. of Prometheus fame, was founded.

Also, today is 10/11/12. Yep, Consecutive Integer Day. In its honor, we’ve rounded up our 10 favorite counting videos. So, in 5, 6, 7, 8…

From Our Partners:

Celebrity Editor Abbey Stone hails from the fair isle of Martha's Vineyard, a lovely, vaguely dinosaur-shaped spot of land located off the coast of Cape Cod, MA, that is best known for exporting preppy salmon-colored pants. But the bright lights of New York City beckoned, and Abbey was lured away from her coastal haven to attend Barnard College. She graduated in 2010 with a degree in English and a much less useful minor in Dance. Abbey has been published in Dance Magazine, The Huffington Post, Time Out New York, and Popstar! magazine (where she learned more than she ever wanted to know about Justin Bieber). Abbey now lives in Brooklyn, where she spends her days watching stupid Internet videos and reading pretentious books.
