Magic numbers

I've been reading the Constitution this morning and I noticed something I hadn't before, namely that the pohibition was the 18th amendment and that its repeal was the 21st. The numbers 18 and 21, the same numbers of the old drinking age and the new one. Coincidence or supernatural drinking numerology? OK, maybe it's just a handy trick for remembering them.

On a related topic, have any of you living or working in Massachusetts noticed this odd numeric coincidence? Route 62 intersects both Rt. 495 and Rt. 3 at an exit numbered 26. What's the chances of that happening?
