More Dates

At dinner the other night,
my son told me that the Apocalypse was coming soon.  Of course, I knew this since he gets his
driver’s license this year – OK, maybe that’s just a parental apocalypse . . . 

He told me that it was far
worse than that.  And it made the last
interesting date this year, April 5,
look like nuthin’ in comparison. 

At six minutes and six seconds
after six AM on June 6, it’ll be: 

06:06:06 06/06/06

Of course, unlike the April 5 fun date, this date works in Europe, too.  I’m not a religious guy, but
it’s gotta mean something.

  1. It means maybe we should all become buddists, it seemed to work for the Chinese, they swimmingly passed this date over 2500 years ago. Someone please help me, what happened on June 6 of 6 back during the Roman Empire, or in the year 666. Maybe this number is in a different base, gotta be at least base 7 of course. If it’s something like base 47 though we got some breathing room. Which side of the international date line does this occur on.  I know some folks in Australia, I call them the night before, if they answer the phone, I know we’ll be safe…. It’s like looking at the clouds and seeing different shapes.  It doesn’t take a lot of skill to make any date the start of the end.
