Cool. (Check out the time of this post.)
Where New York Times columnist David Pogue latched onto this fascinating factoid, there's no telling. But as randomly useless bits of trivia go, this is definitely worth noting.
Pogue writes: Late tonight—specifically, 123 seconds after 1:00 a.m.—the time and date, for the first time in all of humanity, will be 01:02:03 04/05/06.
And, Pogue points out, this moment will never come again.
Well, at least not exactly. In Europe, which renders the date before the month, this singular moment will occur next month, at 123 seconds past 1 a.m. on 4 May. And after that, it most definitely will never occur again.
Actually, I future posted this. In reality, I'm probably in bed trying to stay awake watching the 10th episode of Crusade in The Pacific, about Iwo Jima.
Just finished getting my swanky new desk installed. Phew... I'm exhuasted. Thanks, Doug!
