  1. I’ll be asleep but I’ll try to catch the next one.

  2. Reminds me of listening to the radio on December 31, 1961 (KTKT I think). They were discussing how we were just exiting the last year that reads the same upside down as right side up until, like, 6009! (Right?)

    I was pretty sad about it, and bid the year a fond farewell.

  3. Won’t it be the same at 1:02 p.m too?

    Or is it different because of military time?

  4. Isn’t it amazing that some people actually put some kind of significance in such nonsense? I guess it is the way our brains are wired that we look for patterns where none exist. And consider that the Europeans get to go through this nonsense on May 4th.

    Just to make it worse, I heard some talking heads commenting on this on a local news station. One of them commented that this won’t occur again for 1,000 years. Consider the source.

  5. Oh, come on, Richard. Tell us how you really feel! 😉

  6. It’s like the year 2000 turmoil.

    Admittedly, there were possible problems from computer programs that weren’t designed to turn the century, but there were also people who see cosmic significance in the completely arbitrary date system we have developed. Even if you think the birth of Christ is significant enough to anchor your calendar, nobody thinks the calendar designers got that part right anyway.

  7. I’m really looking forward to this. Oh wait, that was 2 weeks ago. Nudge.
