Consecutive Integer Day

On the East Coast, it is about to be 12:34:56 on 7/8/09.

I’m pretty sure this has no significance whatsoever but it’s mildly interesting.

  1. Not on the Mayan calendar. 🙂

  2. And in a few years it will 12:34:56.789 on 10/11/12, but only for the briefest of instants.

    The time and date format is a little silly to achieve this contrivance.

    You start with a medium-sized unit known as the hour, then shrink to minutes and further still to seconds, then jump way up to a fairly big unit the month, then back down to a day, then up to a year. Not to mention we’re dropping several digits from the year.

    But on the other hand, if it makes people happy …

    But we really do not have to wait until 10/11/12 for another great number:

    09:09.09 on 09/09/09

    which will require an atomic clock to time the first sip of champagne!
