Didn’t celebrate counting


Today, twice in fact, there were times that will only happen once in 5000 years! No, 100 years! And only in the U.S.! I’m speaking, of course, about the time when the clock hits 04:05:06 07/08/09 and 12:34:56 07/08/09. I have celebrated other mathematical days here, especially Pi Day, but this a non-event. No special dessert, nothing particularly interesting happens, it is simply an artifact of how we commonly format datetime values.

It has nothing to do with the fact that I wear this watch:

You cannot mark what you cannot see.
