unusual date and time

Post by or2az » Thu Dec 11, 2014 2:00 pm

Thought I would share this piece of useless information in advance.
In 2 days, at 11 minutes after 10 pm, the time and date will be 10:11 on 12/13/14.
This will be the last time that the time and date will be 5 consecutive numbers....for eternity.......really until 2105, which is an eternity for us.
Naturally, this is for the USA. In countries with a different date format, It could be as "early" as 2103 (like in Japan, I think, 1:02 on 03/04/05).
(I seem to remember this event occurring last year in the UK at 9:10pm on 11/12/13 which I believe was December 11th)

I tried to somehow relate this to mahjong....but I couldn't.
Sure hope they wrap up the Saki anime by then. I wouldn't want to miss it.

It's pretty cool. A few years before we'll have the ikkutsukan of time, however: at 12:34:56 7/8/90.

And Chuuren at:

11:12:34 5/6/78999

Assuming humans as a species live that long. :shock: (Append 1-9 anywhere on that date/time string)
