A Serial Second


This has no political content, it's just kind of fun. I may stay up and toast the precise moment:

On Wednesday of this week, at two minutes and three seconds after 1:00
in the morning, the time and date will be: 01:02:03 04/05/06.

That won't ever happen again.

Though there is May 6 next year, 3601 seconds later (and so on).

Addendum: OK, I obviously wasn't thinking very hard when I posted this, since as multiple commenters observe, far from being something that "won't ever happen again," as the original poster suggests, it'll happen every hundred years. If I can get some of those nanobots Ron Bailey keeps talking about, maybe I'll be around to toast the next one. Bar that, I'll hang on for 1:01:23 on May 8, 2013 and toast Leonardo Fibonacci.
