This won't happen again in our lifetime

Tonight (actually Wednesday morning) at 2 minutes and 3 seconds after 1 AM....

01:02:03 04/05/06

Something this wild has happened less than 20 times in the history of the universe. And it won't happen again for exactly 100 years. I don't know about you, but I'm going to stay up until 1:03 AM just so say I can say I was part of this mind-blowinging confluence of numbers. So there you have it. Useless information that you can impress all your friends with.

If logic is a factor

by jardinier In reply to

the sequence would be:

second, minute, hour, day, month, year.

So the logical conclusion to be drawn from this is that Americans do not think logically.

What's that rustling sound I hear? Ah, yes. It is Aristotle turning in his grave. :0

the Japanese have it logically

by neilb@uk In reply to If logic is a factor

Year, month, day, hour, minute second.

We're a bit screwed up as we (sensibly) subset time and date but we're much better than the Yanks who have absolutely no reason - other than their perversity - for doing it the way they do!

Takes longer to say

by M_a_r_k In reply to

"[some event] happened on the 4th of May, 2006" as opposed to "[some event] happened on May 4th, 2006". You have a couple of extra words in there that serve no purpose..

The man that puts unnecessary underscores in his name is complaining about a couple of words. _________

But I don't have to type my own underscores

by M_a_r_k In reply to Isn't this grand

Unless I talk to myself. I've only typed my own name once. That was when I registered. So I could have a zillion underscores in my name and it wouldn't slow me down a bit.

Do you speak with a lithp???

by sleepin'dawg In reply to Takes longer to say

What's with the "th" after the "4"??? Totally superfluous. Write it as May 4, 2006 say it as May 4th, 2006. The "th" is gratuitous and patronizing.
