This Historic Event That Will Never Happen Again


Recommended Posts

a bit of verry interesting trivia


February 20 this year will be a historic moment in time
it will not be marked by chiming of any clocks or the rining of bells but at that precise time on that spacific date somehting will happen which has not occurred for 1,001 years and will never happen again

as the cloc ticks over from 8:01 pm on wednesday february 20 time will for sixty seconds only read in perfect semmetry 2002,2002,2002 or to be more precise

20:02 20/20 2002

this historic event will never have the same poignancy as the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month which marks ARMISTICE DAY but it is an event which has only ever happened once before and is something which will never be repeated

the last occasion that time read in such a symmetical pattern was long before the days of the digital watch and the 24 hour clock at 1 0:01 on jan 10, 1001 and because the clo0ck onl goes up to 23:59 it is something that will never happen again


my dad found it

[B]Yes it is very cool, i lernt about it at school today. And... me living in New Zealand will get it before all of you, just like i got the year 2000 before all of you. It's only another 4 hours to wait here. I'm so exited, i think i might take a photo of the clock, hehe. [/B][/QUOTE]

Y'know, you're acting just like Flash, teasing me because he lives in NZ and I live in Aus, and all these things happens to him first. *Mutters a few choice words under his breath*

Anyway, this sounds really interesting. I'll be sure to be looking at the clocks. Thanks for telling me Blanko!

kuja thinks sephiroth is a stupid name, and that your crazy for dating him unless the name is supposed to be 'death to sephiroth' hehe (joking about FF games lol)

ha ha ha... I'm in my evil specific scientist mood today....

The time is still not truly symmetrical... due to the fact that the time is 20:02:00 , 20/02 , 2002 to 20:02:59 , 20/02 , 2002... and thus therefore the time will not be truly [i]symmetrical[/i] until 00:00:01, 10/01, 100000
and only for one second :p

but then, we do not consider milliseconds, or even microseconds, and either way, you'll never get the same number three times if you consider precise times...

my point is... the reason that time is symmetrical at that point is because of our measurement of time. I use the same reasoning for such events as the new millenium.. it only happened a few years ago cos we count in base 10. If we counted in a higher base number, we'd wait longer, and if we counted in a lower base number, we wouldn't wait as long.

for example, if we counted in base 2, there would be a millenium every 8 years! which wouldn't be a very significant event. :)

[COLOR=deeppink]Blast your hide to hades, you stole my post! :P


Blanko, 20:02, 20/02, 2002 is not the last time it will happen. Like Manick said, 21:12, 21/12, 2112 also has the year three times.


Oh, and kuja, I may not be blonde, but I seriously spaced when I first heard that today in Math class... My teacher said that it wasn't going to ever happen again, and I said "What about the year 3003?" Then I realized clocks don't go up that high, and neither do months. Stupid me.[/COLOR]
