Today has been called a one-derful day. At eleven seconds past 11:11 am, on this, the 11th day of the 11th month of the 11th year, we have an unusual date and time:

11/11/11 11:11:11

This is not going to happen again for a while.

And 1000 900 years ago, in the year 1111, we had two extra digits in the run.

Meanwhile, enjoy your one-derful day.

    Funny how we can often deal handily with more complex mathematical issues and stumble on the simple ones: 1111 was 900 years ago, not 1000 (which was 1011). Seems intuitive to say it was 1000, but the math tells us otherwise.

    We could find a new messiah and then kill him. Then we can start out at year zero again.

    Meh. One of the 11′s is not really an 11, it’s an abbreviation for 2011. That fouls up the symmetry in my book.

    WTFU — activate your pineal gland, and open your third eye today!

    Lest we forget, remember all veterans of wars who have fought and died for our freedom…regardless of whether we thought the wars enacted by our politicians were just!
