    Did anyone get up to look at the clock this morning? I have to say I did :eek::)

    If you missed it there is a further chance to see it tonight at, yes you guessed it, 08.08.08pm although for the purists its not the same as it will be 20.08.08 on the 24 hour clock.

    I was going to try and post at that time but was too busy staring at my clock to remember.

    The Americans/Canadians/South American/Others still have the chance to view it due to timezones.

    Remember though that in the US it will be 08/08/08 rather than 08/08/08.

    Typical students... Still in your pit at 08:08am :D ...

    I was on my way to work. So I spent 08:08:08 08/08/08 listening to Mike Parry on Talksport doing press ups while singing the Chinese National Anthem in English.

    It just doesn't look right as 08/08/08 instead of 08/08/08. Silly Americans.

    I think you made a typo in the second date, it should be 08/08/08.

    How's this for timing...

    I clicked in to this thread and started reading it, and only then did I look up at the title bar of my phone and saw the time: 8:08. :D

    Too bad I didn't take a screen shot of it. :(

    Ugh! You funky UK people and your stupid dates. Just stop it. This is the correct way to simplify August 8, 2008: 08/08/08!

    I graduated a couple of weeks back so no longer a student. I was, in fact, getting up to take the puppy out for a walk. :)

    Very good point - I know a lot of countries write it as 08/08/08 instead

    I am looking forward to this one:

    I was awake for it and staring at the clock, although I didn't realize it was 08.08.08 08/08/08. Sadly I have an injury and haven't really been able to get a decent night's sleep in weeks. So I was staring at the clock wondering why if I am tired why I was still awake. :p Frustrating but at least I know I was able to "accomplish" something.

    Well, we can technically continue events like this every year until 12/12/12...which, coincidentally, the world is supposed to end around then anyway (according to the Mayans)....so there will be no point continuing after that.

    At least 08/08/08 isn't hellish like 06/06/06 was.

    Aw, that's a shame.

    Then you'll also miss 12:34:56 7/8/90 in Europe too!

    (you might still make 1:23:45 6/7/89 though, in US and Europe?)
