Your stupid factoid for the day

Because, you know, life is always better with stupid factoids:

At five minutes and six seconds after 4 on the 8th of July this year, the time and date will be:

04:05:06 07/08/09

This exact sequence will never happen again in our lifetimes.

  1. Is this like a Y2K thing? I’m not falling for that again. Last time, I spent the whole night, in the cold, on the roof of my building watching — and then nothing. Not a single plane fell from the sky. Total rip-off, man.

  2. Well, technically since we’re at the beginning of the century, we’ll be able to do this until 2012, because after that, we will run out of months to use. You can only have the month number go to 12, and then you have to stop, because it won’t go higher. Otherwise, you can just shuffle the digits around. However, this is the only date, I believe, where the number started at 1 and went through 09, just because of how many seconds there are in a minute (can’t go any higher than a 5).
