....around 1am, it will be 1:02:03am 4/5/06
Happens once every 100 years i better not miss it.
Unless you're in one of those weirdo countries where it will be 5/4/06...
Oi! This country (Greenwich to be precise) is where the world's time is worked out from, so what we say goes. 5/4/06 is quite correct, thank you very much!
Indeed, you'll have to wait until May.
May the 4th be with you :groan:
Meh, I'm in America and it works for me. Who cares about the rest of the world.
Well, all the countries who write their days and months the right way round do, for starters...
I wish the US would do it that way, too. I never really got why we do it differently.. Bla.
WHERE'S MY METRIC SYSTEM??
Personally, I'm waiting for 1:23:45 6/7/89... Now *that* will be exciting!
Once you guys start driving on the correct side of the road, I might caring.
interesting... how odd these facts just happen sometimes..
This reminds me of my little birthday celebration a few years ago. My birthday is Jan. 2nd. So in 2003, at 4:56 pm it became 1/2/3/4/5/6.
I celebrated this great event with a pint. Naturally.
Once in a thousand years...and it's coming!
This Wednesday, just after 1am, the time and date will be
That's pretty cool.
BTW: "01:02:03 04/05/06" only happens once
What about in the year 3006?
darn, you got me, but I'll be dead, so I don't care
It happens every 100 years, not 1000 years.
And it won't happen until May for me.
Hope i won't be dead.....i would like to see it again...i think(might be to old to care)
twice every 100 years.
twice in one day.
It happened almost 16 years ago - 12:34:56 on 7/8/90.
You missed that one...it happen several years ago..back in the days of colorful garments and wrist bands.
My brother emailed me this fact earlier today. My response was "that's the kind of thing people post on MR forums"
so here it is!
A Unique Moment in Time
I realize it's already happened across the pond, but I thought I would point out that in a few hours here, a very unique moment in time will occur. It will be April 4, 2006, and the time will be 2 minutes and 3 seconds past 1 o'clock in the morning. In other words, the exact date will be 01:02:03 04/05/06
This will not occur again for another one thousand years.
P.S. I also realize that due to the way the English represent their dates, the above could be construed as May 4, 2006 as well, since they use the dd/mm/yy format and we usually use the mm/dd/yy format.
