20:02, 20/02, 2002…

I’m sure you have heard it at some point today – today is a special day, because we had 20:02, 20/02, 2002. That’s 8:02pm, 20/02 is the European way of writing Feb. 20, and it’s 2002. Where were you? I was on the road. I was thinking to myself that everything I read about it said “this won’t happen ever again!” Uh, what? Why not on 21:12, 21/12, 2112? Translated, 9:12pm, Dec. 21, 2112? After that time it will never happen again because the military clock ends at 24 and there are only 12 months in a year. So there can’t be a 30:03, 30/03, 3003. There also can’t be a 31:13, 31/13, 3113. But it will still happen one more time. Most of us probably won’t be around to see it though!

What do you mean we won’t be here in 2112? What do you know that we don’t?

Wait, you mean us as individuals or as a species?

And what’s wrong with wanting to have my brain transplanted into a cyborg body? Eh?

Yeah, you never know medicine is advancing. 😉 However you are correct that people seemed to make it sound like this was the last one. I guess they all figure if it happens again and they are not around then it does not count. Kinda like the if a tree falls in the woods and no one is there does it make any noise…… thingy.:-)

(21/12), That’s going to be in December right? Not February.

I will not say how long I’ve spent double thinking that before posting, because it’s entirely too embarrassing and evidence of that – I’m worried I could still be wrong.
