12:12:12 12/12/12 is coming!

We've had one like this every year for the last 11 years, but this will be the last until 2101.


If we last that long.


So, what are you going to do for it?

My wife suggested a 12/12/12 party.

She said she would cook a dozen eggs.
I said I would bring a baker's dozen doughnuts, but the 13 was rejected.

No way! You cannot be in your 50s.

Those of us who only have nine fingers know better. That date is really 13/13/2675. And you will be 57. We know you were really born in the year 2617. People with ten fingers just get confused. Their number looks smaller. Then they don't feel so old.

After discussion with a friend, I've decided to celebrate by calculating 12^6 with pencil and paper. Hmm, can I do it in my head...

Oh, forgot to answer the question. I"ll be doing the opposite of rapturing. I suppose it will involve fire and brimstone but I'm not sure if this part of the country has brimstone. We may have to settle for limestone. we've tons of that.

I've based my financial planning on the whole world ending 12/21 so....here's hoping!
