: : Someone told me I had snake eyes the other day and that Cleopatra also had snake eyes.
: : What does the term "Snake Eyes" mean anyway?

: OK there is more than one way to look at this - sometimes 'snake eyes' is complimentary - it can mean having a narrow gap between top and bottom lids, but can also refer to having an elongated shape, which can be attractive.

: uncomplimentary - it could refer to looking untrustworthy.

: 1-1 on two dice is 'snake eyes' simply because there are two spots.

And a 6 and 5 can be seen as an O and E. OE = 11. Oceans eleven.
