Thirty and Twenty both do not follow the pattern of 'threety' and 'twoty' and 'forty' is not spelled as 'fourty'.


In other words, the exception to the rule that you are portraying as extreme is merely the most of an already gradual breaking away from a trend.

There is indeed precedence for this.

4th - 9th but 1st, 2nd, 3rd so it is something special about 1-3, the reason may be a conspiracy of some kind and to do with the coding of the matrix so if you're born on a date that invovles 1-3 more than the other numbers (espeically on the day) then I suppose you're special, congrats.
