Numerical Palindrome

I recieved this in my email today. It was a forward from a friend but I think it is kind of cool. A little late for those outside of North America. Sorry 🙂
“As the clock ticks over from 8:01PM on Wednesday, February 20th, 2002, time will (for sixty seconds only) read in perfect symmetry. To be more precise: 20:02, 20/02, 2002. It is an event which has only ever happened once before,
and is something which will never be repeated. The last occasion that time read in such a symmetrical pattern was long before the days of the digital watch (or the 24-hour clock): 10:01AM, on January 10, 1001. And because the clock only goes up to 23.59, it is something that will never happen again!”
I though that was pretty cool. Thanks for the forward Slovak.

  1. Confused? Maybe you’re still sick. Heh… By the way, many couples in Singapore are getting married on 20/02/2002. It’s a so-called auspicious day to tie the knot. 🙂
