The last consecutive month/day/year for almost 89 years

Today is 12-12-12, or as the real world calls it, December 12, 2012.

But for us geeks that really look forward to number combinations like several times a day looking at the clock when it’s 11:11 or 1:11 or 10:10, this is a day that deserves to be celebrated.

Detailed number position logistics aside [ie. there is a ’20’ in front of that ’12’ for the year], this day should mean a lot to more than just us technical nuts.

### 12 Things About 12

- There are 12 days of Christmas [which happens in 13 days]
- There are 12 months in each year
- There are 12 items in a dozen: eggs, donuts, bagels, roses
- A 12 step program towards sobriety
- A fellow co-worker turns 36 today, which gives him a trifecta of celebration today
- 12 volts of power starts most consumer vehicles
- The number 12 just missed being binary by 1
- Many great albums have 12 songs on them
- 12 is the last year before you become a teenager
- Hours are divided in sets of 12
- Today is exactly 6 years, 6 months, 6 days from June 6, 2006, or 06/06/06
- There are 12 astrological signs on the zodiac chart, with an special nod to those born under the Aquarius sign today

So once you have celebrated 12:12:12 today, palindrome fans will also get to celebrate when the clock hits 1:21:02, making it 2012-12-12 1:21:02 [unless you woke up early at 1:21:02 and are ahead of the curve].

So go out and make today memorable. It’s unique in it’s own same numerical way. And it won’t happen for another lifetime.

Did you see whall’s 12:12 pm birthday wish to himself on Facebook? That’s pretty cool to be able to do that.

Yes, that was pretty cool. He got to enjoy this day more than the rest of us.

I love stuff like this. As much as I really dislike math, numbers are fascinating.

I normally try to see 11:11 twice a day on a clock and it makes me smile.

Interesting stuff. Happy 12-12-12!

Thank you. And welcome to the blog.
