Out of the Blue

I commented here when 02/02/02 passed on the calendar, joking this rare convergence would not happen again for just over a year, but THE FOX sends along a note pointing out that today is a date that is truly unusual if you write it in what I joked is that oddball European manner: DD/MM/YYYY (20/02/2002). I haven't really tried to work all the way through it, but if our feral friend's calculations are correct, this palindrome date will actually only occur twice more under our current calendar system: over 100 years from now on 21 December 2112 and again another thousand(!) years hence, on 30 March 3003.

Story of the Day: Sinatra's 'My Way' Soothes Milosevic Behind Bars. Thanks Jesh. "Regrets, I've had a few..."
Story of the Day II: Killed Over Off-Key Karaoke. On a related note (thanks again Jesh). This is the second time this has happened, many have suspected that Sid Vicious offed himself after hearing his own rendition.
