This won't happen again in our lifetime

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

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.

That is like the cubs fan's motto.:) Oh well, At least we won last night.

Sorry to hear about the mauling but does peanut butter sting when it gets into a cut?? It must be tough to explain how a bear mauled you with a peanut butter sandwich. But maybe you should have left the TV on Animal Planet liked the bear asked. That will teach you.

Since the last time the Cubs won the Series was 1908, the rallying cry might become:

"Just wait until NEXT Century".

My favorite team when I was a kid was the Houston Lastros. Now I suppose it's the Texas Rangers. Neither has ever won a damn thing. Last year the Astros had a chance but got smoked in the Series by another perennial loser from Chicago: the White Sox.

Take in account that the Series only exists, well lets say, 150 years. Yes I know it is a bit shorter but hadend had the time to google for it.
So in 150 years they didn't win the Series.
What is that in comparison to the time between "Something wild happening" 00:00:00 00/00/00 and 01:02:03 04/05/06
AND the time they have before 99:99:99 99/99/99 is reached.

But then if they never make it ... sorry they will be the laughing stock of all.

I used to (still do actually) have people call me weird because I would see patterns like that and think it was cool.

Even the simple things, like the house I grew up in, it was a strange thing but to get people to remember my address I told them to remember the street. (9th street). double it and double it again. 1836 ninth st.

Anyone else count ceiling tiles? ;\

and yes MARK, I will be up for it tonight! (EST)

Doubling 9, subtracting 16 and dividing by the square root of pi

by M_a_r_k In reply to seeing patterns

No wonder people thought you were weird.

I haven't ever counted ceiling tiles. I did count floor tiles once when I got drunk and passed out and fell on the floor. It's amazing how fast you can count tiles when you're trying to avoid them.
