Today is... Updated 12/13/12
« on: December 12, 2012, 09:24:22 AM »
12-12-12

Quote
Today is 12-12-12, the last major numerical date using the Gregorian or Christian calendar for almost another century. The next time three numbers will align as they did on 9-9-09, 10-10-10 and 11-11-11 will be on Jan. 1, 3001, or 1-1-1.

I'm wondering if anyone is paying attention.

"It's been said that 12-12-12 is a special moment in time, a "master shift, "peak point in spiritual energy," and even a time of "ascension," when spiritual initiates "ascend" to a wonderful new existence, one free of personal adversity and karma," said Petullo, who disagrees.

Maybe that means it will balance out all this impending, Dec 21rst, Doomsday talk?

Numerics like this rather amuse me, I dunno why. Next year is our last chance at a leading up sequence as well (11-12-13 depending how you mark your calendars)   And won't have such an event until 1-2-2103.    So basically today and next year are the last time things fall in sync for roughly...97-98 years?

Wouldn't it be Jan 1, 2101?

I think 2101 = 101

I don't know anyone who writes mm/dd/yyy (or dd/mm/yyy).

It's always either mm/dd/yyyy (all four digits) or mm/dd/yy (last two.)

Lots of people write MM/DD/YY just not everyone. :P

Right.  What I've never seen is anyone who writes exactly three digits of the year.  (I left out the European/US flip in my two examples for sake of conciseness.)

01-01-01 is good for January 1, 2101 or any year ending in 01.

I noticed that when I read the article though the did say the gap was around 100 years before they gave the 3001 date.

That's what I was getting at.  ;)

I was just following the 3001 logic.

Of course, I think numerology is as much a farce as the Dec 21rst Doomsday bunk.
