Saturday, December 13, 2014


Today is one of those neat numerical happenings for the calendar, as December 13, 2014 can be written "12-13-14."

The next time we will have this kind of coincidence will be January 2, 2034, which will be written "1-2-34." If you write your dates in the manner I have seen used by European publications, then that  number will indicate February 1, 2034. Unless you are the kind of person who insists on the initial zero when you write your dates, in which case the next time this will happen will be September 10, 2111 (09-10-11). Or October 9 of that same year for the Europeans.

Either way, I predict that the day in question will see Al Sharpton say something stupid, if he is still living.

I've got a pretty good track record about the sun rising in the east, too.
