8 is the number for prosperity and good fortune in China. Hence, the 8/8/08 start to the Olympic games. Like FB stated...

so its supposed to be lucky eh? just because it sounds similar to the word(prosperity), or it IS the number equivalent?

AND - is anyone feeling lucky?

Apparently it is suppose to be lucky, I am basing that on all the signs I have seen around town for the casinos in the area. But that is just a way to suck people in to blow money they don't have.

Well, in the modern sense it has been watered down like the number 7 or 3 has significance in modern America. It was derived from the Noble Eightfold Path--which, is if you don't know, is the (Advayavada) Buddhist belief system to enlightenment and an end to suffering. I believe its called dukkha. So, certain things are calibrated in the number 8.
