Eleven Eleven Eleven

November 11, 2011 — by Per Christensson

Eleven Eleven Eleven Today is a special day. It is the eleventh day of the eleventh month of the eleventh year of the millennium. Eleven is my favorite number, so I find this day to be especially exciting.

Since this momentous occurrence will only occur once in my lifetime, I made sure to capture a screenshot of the second my clock hit 11:11:11 on 11/11/11. It is the only time in the next hundred years that the date and time will include 12 ones. (OK, it will happen again tonight at 11:11 PM, but technically, that will be 23:11:11.) While some may think I am a nerd for making such a big deal out of this, I believe today is worth celebrating, if not at least worth capturing an opportune screenshot. Happy 11/11/11!
