You wake up, fire up the coffee machine, and hunt and gather via your refrigerator. A couple minutes later, you place the single serving K-cup in your Keurig coffee maker, press 'brew'...and nothing.

September 9 also is the 252nd day of the year. 2+5+2 = 9. In addition, if you multiply any single digit number by 9, the resulting two digits add up to 9. Lastly, note that 999 is 666 upside-down which signifies the number of the Beast, the Antichrist in the Bible's Book of Revelati...
