Now I thought of something like this back on 01-02-03 at 4:56 pm.


All my friends were utterly unimpressed.





PS, yours WILL happen again at 01;02:03 PM 04-05-06

Nice catch Keith. And probably much easier for most of us to recognize, at least while conscious.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Well - I think these occurrences are cool and I'm going to make sure I'm awake for it!

My wife thinks I'm nuts.

One example of my past behavior - was in Las Vegas on 8-8-1988, so, at 8:08 played $8 on #8 in Roulette.....and lost.

Thanks for the heads-up!

Yes, but only in America. In the UK we have to wait until 4th May for this event to happen, not the 5th of April.

Isee now why the US has their date format the way they do, you get all the good stuff first.....

Technically, it will be 1,000 years before this happens again. Even though 2106, 2206, etc. are abbreviated as '06, only 3006 is the true "06".

I had a little cognac at 01:02:03 04/05/06 this morning to celebrate!
