Just wait until two months from now when it'll be 06:06:06 06/06/06!!! Oh No!
Then later, when it'll be some other arbitrary number that magically shows up .
Speaking of arbitrary... 04/05/06 is meaningless without context (US civilian date format, I assume?) Here in Canada it's dd/mm/yy, in Japan it's yy/mm/dd, etc.
This is the stupidest non-event the Internet's ever gotten excited about.
No way? It's arbitrary? What the...
Not only arbitrary, but also 100% sarcasm-proof! See, it bounces right off! :)
Stupider than any other arbitrary assortment of "significant" digits in an arbitrary counting system? ("millenium", anyone?)
I think not.
You're right, they're all equally stupid. I suppose this one is still the stupidest if I mean "there are none stupider than it". :)
Ah, the old saw about "millennium" comes from "mille" + "annus" (a thousand years), so "millenium" must come from "mille" + "anus".
Holy shit, you posted at 13:00:00 04/04/06!
I was hoping someone would notice!
Why was 6 afraid of 7? Because 7 8 9!
k, let's all stop now.
That was just plain bad.
hrmph. *plain* bad, huh? not even a little flourish? a doyle for its presentation, p'rhaps? ;)
OK....maybe a little sprinkles on top...but that's it!
it was raw awesome, kplzthnx. I snarfed, just a little bit.
In other news, apparently the media is predicting a run of brain surgeons playing the numbers 123456 in the lottery tomorrow.
And, as the people posting this often point out, "OMG THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN!!!1!"
Unless your Tregowethian calendar finally catches on...
Now I have the Sesame Street counting song in my head. Thanks a lot.
Do do de do do, do do de do do, de do, do DO, do de do!
You can thank The Pointer Sisters, amongst other people, for that. [video]
I had no idea. Now I want to hear the Ninja Tune version!
Try here. (Requires RealPlayer crappiness, and is disappointingly like the un-edited version.)
It's your own damn fault, Mr. time_t party animal.
And if you miss that, you have a whole minute to celebrate 1:23 4/5/06.
it won't happen for this side of the pond until May. I can't wait.
As for the time_t parties, you unix guys know how to *live*!!!! w00t!
I enjoyed 12:34:56 7/8/90 much more.
And why do people keep saying that 01:02:03 04/05/06'll never happen again? What's the logic?
I don't know why people even think it's happening NOW. It already happened 2000 years ago. Ohhh I get it... people have the y2k bug (actually the "every-century bug").
