Not only does the date look good in marketing promotions, but it also represents the last set of repeating, single-digit dates that we'll see for almost a century (until January 1, 2101), or a millennium (mark your calendars for January 1, 3001), depending on how you want to count it.


Thought this was kinda cool.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

11-11-11 will outdo it. It's funny to me though how people make sure a big deal out of things like this. We just had 08-08-08 last year, and an 07-07-07 the year before, etc.

dear god! And after 12/31/13 we won't have another date that ends in 13 for another 100 years!!!!!111!11!1


This is all irrelevant though since the world ends in 2012.

The new Stone Vertical Epic Ale 09.09.09 comes out today and this year, it's a Belgian porter. Yum. ;-D

06/06/06 was awesome, for obvious reasons, but too bad The Omen remake was just OK at best. I loved their billboard ads. The 07/07/07 thing drew me batty because of the hoopla about getting married that day. The number 8 is a big deal in Chinese culture, which made 08/08/08 the perfect day to start their Olympic ceremony.

BTW, I don't believe in that whole 2012 deal when there used to be the belief that the world would end on Cinco de Mayo 2000.

Remember 9/9/99? That was the day the Sega Dreamcast came out and some feared that it would be like a Y2K phenomenon that day. :-b
