Three Reasons to Love 121


121 – One Hundred and Twenty One

Here’s three reasons to love this number:

  1. Its a palindromic number – the same backwards as it is forwards
  2. It’s a square number – 121 = 11 x 11 = 112
  3. It always reminds me of the mobile company 0ne2one which morphed into T-Mobile. one2one ran a great series of ads where a star explained who they would like to have a one 2 one with. They’ve always stuck with me and they always reminded me that 11 squared is one2one – 121.

Here’s one of one2one’s ads, where Kate Moss tells us how she’d like to meet Elvis:
