Out of the Blue

Today is the second in a string of 10 consecutive five-digit palindrome dates using the arguably illogical American notation. Yesterday was 1/20/21. This can also be written as 1/20/2021, which is also a seven-digit palindrome. According to Farmers' Almanac this was the first seven-digit palindromic Inauguration date in US history. The next one will be 1/20/3021, so mark your calendars. We'll also nine consecutive five-digit palindromes in December as well as an eight-digit one on 12/02/2021. There will be a total of 22 palindromic dates for the year, which can only happen in years (not centuries, not centuries, oops) ending in 11 and 21. Meaningless, yes, but I find number patterns tickle my brain, so it was fun learning all this.

What's the best place to get a Beaver Butt Sammich or Beaver Butt Burrito?
Is Blue still having the gang over for Grilled Butte Butt Beaver Bangers?

The best vanilla (used in the most expensive perfumes and the most expensive cuisine) probably came out of beaver butt. That's kind of cool actually.

I just added Beaver ass to my long list of anxieties... just below "toilet plumes".

So someone, somewhere, had too much time on their hands and figured they'd go squeeze a Beaver's anal glands?

As somebody who has suffered from pilonidal cysts, I frankly find the level of butt humor wholly inappropriate and downright offensive. I demand an apology.

I have been coming here for 20 years, and have never seen this much butt-related humor on the board. Quite refreshing, actually.

I'm still confused. What can only happen in decades ending in 11 or 21? The fact there are 22 dates? The link you provided shows other palindrome dates later in the 21st century some of which are not in decades ending in 11 or 21.
I think the 11 and 21 years are the only years with 22 palindromes possible that year, there are many palindromes in other years, just not as many.

Yes.

And dammit, I corrected "centuries" into "decades." But of course it's simply "years." Don't know what I was thinking.

With all this butt related news today I'm surprised to missed this one, Blue....

Want to catch a glimpse of Uranus? It’ll be very easy tonight

When you gaze up at the night sky you see plenty of stars, but can you pick out planets when you see them? Sometimes it’s possible to spot the likes of Jupiter and Mars without a telescope, but more often than not, folks with “average” eyes can’t tell much of a difference. Tonight, however, you might be able to catch a glimpse of Uranus, and all you should need is a decent pair of binoculars.

Uranus huge, blue, and stinky. It’s also one of the most interesting planets in our system, and it’s not often that we have guideposts in the sky in order to see it. This time around, Uranus will appear close to Mars in the sky, making it a bit easier to spot, especially if you have the hardware to zoom in a little closer.

That's right, if conditions are right tonight you should be able to finally see Uranus tonight.

I half remember a night out in hamburg. That involved a pair of woman and a fair amount of 'secretion'. Much booze, sex and plenty of d marks on that night.

Eh? If 1/20/2021 counts, wouldn't 9/09/1909? Or is there some strict rule about how to apply leading zeros in dates?

It counts, but I think you were the only one alive back then.
