All the Fives

2 AM May 5, 2005

Charles just pointed out that, in a few hours, the time will be 05:05:05UTC on 05/05/05. Woohoo! Nerds rejoice!

Reminds me of 12:34 on 5/6/78. I was standing in the kitchen watching the oven clock. (That was June 5 in Australia and the UK, but almost a whole month earlier in the US on May 6.)

I was sitting in Year 10 physics class at the time (Charles might have been sitting in the same class, I can't remember).

On that day I also realised that a year ago we'd missed:

    01:23:45 6/7 '89

I used to get all excited about the uniquenesss of these dates until some pessimist pointed out that every date is unique! There's always someone ready to spoil your fun.

I have a friend who had her son on 5/5/5.

Her husband pointed out Max will turn 50 on 5/5/55. I pointed out he will turn 100 on 5/5/5.

;)
