NERD ALERT: Love numbers and weird chronological oddities? At 1:02 AM and 3 seconds on Wednesday, April 5, 2006, it will be the 1st hour of the day, the 2nd minute of the hour, the 3rd second of that minute in the 4th month and the 5th day of ’06… or just 01-02-03-04-05-06 for short.
Can’t stay up until 1:02 AM? There is a controversial second chance to observe this event at 1:02 PM. The only problem is most countries and the US military consider 1:02 PM to be really 13:02. Feel free to debate this at your next local science club meeting, but any hardcore math nerd will probably say that it doesn’t count.
Speaking of nerds, take a closer look at the time this blog post is dated. Did I stay up late and submit it at exactly 01 02 03 04 05 06, or did I schedule it… hummm.
