speaking of checking your clocks

Tomorrow 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 happen for another century.

Over the next several years, we will have:

- 02:03:04 05 - 06 - 07
- 03:04:05 06 - 07 - 08
- 04:05:06 07 - 08 - 09
- 05:06:07 08 - 09 - 10
- 06:07:08 09 - 10 - 11
- 07:08:09 10 - 11 - 12
- 08:09:10 11 - 12 - 13
- 09:10:11 12 - 13 - 14

Thanks for playing.

And the math geek in me gets all excited again.

I used your "Which of the following numbers is the most different" question at Open House this year. I asked parents as they came in and we had great discussions about what our kids overlook and what we overlook about our kids. That fueled an awesome fire.

one of my "life's little joys" is looking at the clock and seeing that it is 12:34...i just get all happy...kind of like when there is a pullthrough spot in the parking lot...
