The Time Is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

April 4, 2006

Late tonight — specifically, 123 seconds after 1:00 a.m. — the time and date, for the first time in all of humanity, will be 01:02:03 04/05/06.
Wired News: The Time Is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Interesting … of course highly arguable.  This isn’t the “first time in all of humanity” – it’s the first time in a 100 years.  If you’re using two digit years then the last time this happened was 1906, with previous instances in 1806, 1706, etc.  And it will happen again in 2106, and so on.

That being said, probably very few people around today got to witness the last happening, and few are going to see the next one either.

I remember about 16 years ago my folks and I were on our way back home from picking up some paintings at a gallery in Connecticut that my dad no longer was going to show with.  We were just getting on the highway (taking one of those clover-leaf 270–degree turns) and the mid-day announcer on WNPR announced it was another special time.  It was 12:34:56 on 7/8/90.

Funny how those things stick with you.  I doubt I’ll be away for this one though.  🙂
