Jul 082009

As of the publishing of this article, the time on the East Coast is now 04:05:06 and the date is 07/08/09.  This won’t happen again for quite some time, unles you format your dates in the more elegant European style, with month/day/year rather than day/month/year.  If you do that, this will happen again at 04:05:06 on August 7th, 2009 (07/08/09).


About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.

  1. What about 09/10/11 12:13:14 (YY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS)?

  2. Woah – that’s like . . . months ahead. I can’t plan that far. :)

    Actually that’s a neat one too. I always find this stuff interesting because people tend to make a big deal out of it when in reality, they’re just arbitrary dates on a calendar we created.


  3. Isn’t it just a year away for another instance like this?
    05:06:07 08/09/10. That doesn’t seem like “quite some time.” But I guess that’s relative. And how about in two hours: 12:34:56 7/8/09

  4. Depending on how you look at it, it’s a year away. Or a month away if you do your dates dd/mm/yy.

    I got about 15 forwards from different friends and family touting the fact that this was coming like some non-millennial millennial madness. My point is. . . it’s just a date. :)
